THE WING ON A FLEA is the very ﬁrst book Ed Emberley wrote and illustrated, published in 1962. This lovely book of line drawings about basic shapes and what they could become foreshadowed his later, well-known how-to-draw series of books. Upon its release, THE WING ON A FLEA was named one of the New York Times’ 10 best illustrated books of the year and was an ALA Notable Book. AMMO is delighted to reissue this classic Emberley title to a new generation of children.
