"Arabella Of The Merry-Go-Round" by Lois Maloy, published by Charles Scribner's Sons 1935
Very unusual illustrations by Lois Maloy in this book. The style is art deco of the 1930's of course but there are some wonderful qualities in the charcoal drawings and very strong compositions. Even though the children's faces are stylized, the policeman, the barber and balloon man are excellent.
