Book Description Hutchinson Junior Books, London, 1973. Hard Cover. Book Condition: About Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Victor Ambrus (illustrator). First Edition. 5.25 x 8 in. (13cm x 20cm). 150 pages. Tight and sound copy, with too many library depredations including extensive adhesive stains to inside covers and removal of free front endpaper with barcode and pockets. Few discreet stamps to edges and prelims; tape marks to boards. Spine is slightly slanted, boards show light wear to edges and extremities. Pages predominantly clean with the occasional smudge. Dust jacket is unclipped, has very little wear, would be vg+ but for tape stains which show through on front and back panels and adhesive stains to flaps. Still looks respectable in new mylar cover. The illustrations by Victor Ambrus are a thing of beauty and a joy forever. The story, about a young boy whose heart longs for a pet but is forbidden to keep an animal in his family's overcrowded flat, is thought-provoking; "both exciting and moving" without ever being sentimental. Definitely worth reading, and this is a satisfactory copy for that purpose. Ex-Library. Bookseller Inventory # C700344
