Description: Tom Badger reckons he's something of a bigshot in his woodland community. Because he's taller than others his own age, Tom thinks he's bigger and better than them. But when he begins showing off on the frozen pond, he soon realises that such an attitude won't get him far…
Magical, full-page colour illustrations on every facing page – plus one double-spread. Lovely b&w pencil drawings in text. B&W photograph of author printed on rear cover.
Small curl on upper corner of front cover. Spine lightly creased at rear. Minor crease and scar on back cover. Pages have just a hint of creasing from handling – and there is a school stamp on the title page – otherwise all are in excellent, unmarked condition.
Although the year of publication is given as 1977, this reprint dates from c.1988 as Jean Gilder's Picture Book (first published in '88) is the last title listed on the rear cover.
