Description: "When Josh McBroom bought a farm for just ten dollars, he thought he had a marvellous bargain, until he discovered that the eighty acres were piled on top of each other like a pack of cards, and were under water too. Sid Fleischman's collection of stories has a wonderfully funny, earthy, folktale quality, and Quentin Blake has added his own touch of genius to the hilarious doings of the McBrooms."
Glossy pictorial covers. Apart from some negligible wear to the extremities, plus rubbing to the spine, the covers are as new. Internally, the book is in excellent condition: pages are only lightly tanned, and are completely free from foxing, marking, or any other defect. Super-tight binding.
