Ethel & Ernest: A True Story

£34.99

Product description

This book is in good condition. The laminated dust jacket is undamaged, with very faint wear, and no staining or tearing. The pages are also undamaged with no staining, tearing or creasing, as is the spine and binding. The price is written on a sticker placed on the inside right cover page, along with an Oxfam Gift Aid sticker.

In this beautifully drawn collection of comic-strip drawings, Raymond Briggs tells the true story of his parents, Ethel and Ernest, beginning with their very first encounter. The book tells a story of social and cultural change, as Britain moved through the Second World War, and into the future, and how Briggs's parents adapted as times changed rapidly.

For fans of Briggs and his work, this book provides a different insight into his background. Highly recommended!
