Description: "Wicked Malkin, jealous of the toymakers of Drüssl, plans to move the Mountain and steal all of its pine trees for his new toymaking business.
How can Rudi Toymaker and his two little sons defeat Malkin, his doll-Queen, and their army of wooden soldiers, to save the heart of the Mountain and the toymakers' very livelihood?"

Illustrated with numerous beautiful b&w drawings by the celebrated Shirley Hughes.

Pictorial covers are glossy to the touch and in superb condition, with just a hint of wear to the extremities. Pages are very lightly tanned (to be expected in a paperback of this vintage), but are in otherwise pristine condition: unmarked and free from foxing. Super-tight binding suggests the book may have never been read.

A highly collectable copy of the scarce Piccolo edition.

Measures 18 cm × 11 cm (7.2″ × 4.4″). 12mo. 142 pp. + 2 pp. catalogue of other Piccolo children's books.
