Description: "Here are William, the wonder bear, Amanda with a barrow of red apples, Quimby, a quilted bear, Freddie, who is always getting into trouble, and many, many more. All are in full colour and represent some of this fine artist's most individual and delightful work. A simple rhyming text by Kathleen Hague not only provides an introduction the alphabet but also a story book for young children and a picture book to enchant readers of all ages."
Full-page, captioned illustrations. Each caption begins with a bold, coloured initial.
Red cloth boards with gilded text to spine. Corners and spine are straight. Unclipped (£6.95) dust jacket is lightly creased, but remains clean and free from any tears or other damage. A handful of pages are negligibly creased, else all are in excellent condition: glossy, bright, unmarked, and not a speck of foxing or so much as a ghost of tanning in sight.
