Description: "Pat and his family have a lovely Christmas – three whole days without letters to deliver. But Pat always enjoys getting back to work, even though the weather is terrible. Poor Jess gets too adventurous in the snow and has to take refuge with Alf Thompson's sheep. Pat takes up goat fighting and, when Sara goes away for a few days, proves he can bake a cake too."
Beautiful colour illustrations – many of which are full-page
Glazed pictorial boards. Spine and corners bumped and rubbed. Damage and negligible stain to head of spine. Rear board has a 4 cm scar, plus a number of minor pockmarks, indentations, and light scratches. Discreet gift inscription in blue ballpoint on front pastedown. Minor stain on the edge of the rear pastedown has seeped onto the tips of the pages. One page has some grubby marks and is a little worn. Other than that, all are in very good condition: crisp, bright, unmarked, and completely free from foxing or tanning.
Clearly a well-loved copy!
