Based on the Gentle Ben TV Series, this book tells about the “Mystery in the Everglades”.This is a Big Little Book and is 248 pages (measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″) and from 1969. There is some wear and tear with the book. Some sections of pages are loose from the binding. What makes this book such a delight are the pictures that were drawn inside the book. They are colorful illustrations of the characters in the story. I’m sure they could be glued into binding if need be.
