Description: "Getting locked in when Mum and Annie Rose are locked out; trouble with a new pair of shiny Wellington boots; babysitting bother and a very special birthday party – Shirley hughes perfectly captures the important events in a young child's life. And it is this understanding, detail and gentle humour that make these stories so very special and timeless."

IIllustrated throughout with Hughes' excellent, colour illustrations – many of which are full-page.

Glazed pictorial boards repeat jacket design. Spine and corners straight. Unclipped jacket (£9.99) is lightly scuffed along its upper and lower edges, and has a negligible closed tear at the tail of the spine. The previous owner used the book as a rest when trying out their creative talents, and several scribbles and doodles have become impressed onto the jacket and the board beneath. Pages lightly creased from handling, but are otherwise crisp, bright, and unmarked.

Rare Ted Smart edition.
