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. The boards are mildly warped. In a very good dust jacket, with mild yellowing, light soiling, and a thin open tear in the paper at the head of the jacket's spine. The edges are just a little chipped. 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
