Octavo, 64 pages with illustrations by Michael Atchison.
Papered boards; text paper tanned (as ever); small name-stamp on the half-title and the last page; an excellent copy with the slightly creased dustwrapper.
Inscribed and signed by the author 'For Midge and her friends', with two couplets of original doggerel, and with a small doodle by Atchison on the title page (his signature scruffy dog). The verse reads: 'Dear Midge, all dogs we think are fine / Although I'm glad that your [sic] not mine, / I know, dear Midge, you won't be hurt / You're honest, friendly and alert' (Midge being, of course, the recipient's dog!).
