Slim square quarto [26 cm] Black cloth spine and boards with a white ink stamped title on the spine, and the title in a negative embossed square panel on the front cover. Glossy black endpapers. Very good plus. The boards are just a little concave. In a very good dust jacket, with mild yellowing, and a couple of short edge tears. There is a very minor amount of staining on the bottom edge of the rear inside flap. The corners of the front flap are evenly clipped.
Features the wonderfully creative illustrations of Tina Mercie, Victoria Chess, Jacques Rozier, Monique Gaudriault, Henri Galeron, Jean-Michel Nicollet, Bernard Bonhomme, Guy Billout, Keleck, Nicole Claveloux, and Patrick Couratin. "Quist's visually brilliant fantasy-oriented materials are exciting forays into often uncharted areas, and for this reason they have frequently offended the children's book establishment. Personally, I feel that if Harlin Quist errs, he errs on the side of the angels. His books venture into new territory with a contemporary feeling that is stimulating for adults as well as children... Here are quality books with sense and substance that challenge the jazzy lure of television successfully." - Digby Diehl, The Los Angeles Times
