The original full size mock-up for ONE MORE ACORN, created in the 1970s but not published until after decades after Freeman's death.
Mock up for ONE MORE ACORN
The story follows the trials and tribulations of a Washington D.C. squirrel named Earl who needs to find his hidden acorns before winter arrives. Although the mock-up dates from the 1970s, Freeman could not get it published before his death in 1978. Freeman's son discovered the mock-up: with some editing and finishing touches, it was finally published by Viking in 2010.
n.p. n.p, [circa 1970s]. 10.75'' x 12.5''. Perfect-bound artist's sketch book with hand-lettered cover. Labeled "All For An Acorn" on the title page. With 7 double-page and 36 single page watercolors accompanying the story. Slips of typed text pasted onto pages, with some pencil changes.
