1 FEIFFER, JULES A Barrel of Laughs and a Vale of Tears
New York HarperCollins 1995 
First Edition. Signed by the author, Jules Feiffer on the half-title.As new in an as new dust jacket. It's the same old story young-man-sets-out-to-seek-his-fortune, but in this baggy-pants tale nothing is as it seems. With only a bag of magic powder to assist him, the carefree Roger has to traverse The Deadly Divide, enter the Valley of Vengence, pass over the Sea of Screams, and encounter the Mountain of Malice all the while keeping his good humor. A delightful story with a surprising ending. Extensively illustrated.
