The book is near fine condition with pictorial boards and No Inscriptions, often present in children's books. The unclipped dust jacket shows the original price & has a good front cover with wear & rubbing at edges; nicks at head/tail of spine; back cover has some marks, a nick & a worn patch. Please see photos for condition of back jacket. 66 pp. Now protected by clear, removable archival sleeve. To sum up a near fine book in a good/fair dust jacket.
