At ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Las Vegas, Nevada, a woman brings in a charming piece of literary history: an original illustrated manuscript booklet of Tasha Tudor's first children's book, Pumpkin Moonshine. According to appraiser Ken Gloss, the booklet dates back to 1938, before Tudor had published any books and represents a significant piece of children's illustrated art.

Check out this preview to discover more about this beloved American children's writer and illustrator and the market in her work. To view more fine art and illustration appraisals, visit the Roadshow Archive Online at pbs.org/antiques/archive
