Description: 'Mr Farfield called them his "mice": gentle Samela, orphaned daughter of a fellow artist, Sue, the shrewd street urchin, and her small brother, Ben. "Uncle Farfield" had made a home for them, and they loved him with all their hearts – so much so that when the fashionable gentleman, who promised a grand commission, called them "rats", consuming their guardian's goods and standing in the way of his future prosperity, there seemed only one solution: to run away.'

Illustrated with several b&w drawings.

Green cloth boards with gilded text on spine. Negligible bumping to corners and spine ends. Unclipped (£3.95), glossy pictorial dust jacket is in excellent condition. Internally, the book is effectively as new – the lightly tanned pages are crisp, unmarked, and very tightly bound. There are, however, a few negligible jots of foxing to the upper extremities of the leaves (visible only when the book is viewed from the top).

Inscription by the author, in black ballpoint, reads: with love to you both, from Barbara.

Measures 20 cm × 12.5 cm (8″ × 5″). 8vo. 221 pp.
