More Slimtail's

£9.99

Product description

More Slimtail's is a splendid 4th impression children's book written by Mary Chell and published by A & C Black Ltd in 1944.

The Slimtail's was a short book series about a family of mice that live in a grain sack and have a pet weevil that they take for walks.

This particularly copy is adorned througout with beautiful illustrations by Mary Chell of the mice family. Some images are colour and others in black and white (albeit coloured in by young children).

The book can be described as good condition - its vivid yellow cover does show bumping to its corners as well some minor discolouring and staining. Internally, binding is rather loose with front hinge torn. There is also some minor foxing to front and back endpapers.

A delightful children's tale that has continued to enthrall generations for the past 80 years.
