Description: "Gerry had all sorts of problems when he was first taken to the Safari Park because it seemed that he was too tall. However, his height saved the day when the warden's son went missing, and it helped him to round up some poachers who had captured his animal friends. Two delightfully illustrated rhyming stories which will entertain all young children."
Glazed pictorial boards would have been as new were it not for the bumped spine. Pages are in superb condition, and very tightly bound.
Contrary to what is printed inside the book, this is not a first edition – the boards should be matt for a start! Although the price has almost completely been rubbed off, it would appear that this reprint dates from c.1985.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.6″). 12mo. Unpaginated.
