The Adventures of Richard Smith

£9.99

Product description

On a farm in Talleyrand, Kansas lives twelve year old Richard Smith with his family - mother, father, sister and Gramp. Gramp is an inventor whose inventions never work, but that doesn't stop him inventing. One day he builds a rocket ship destined for Mars. In it he puts Richard. The contraption explodes and Gramp and Richard
decide to take themselves away from the family for a while until the trouble has blown over. This is the beginning of Richard's adventures, and throughout his long journey, he judges the world by the way of life in Talleyrand. As he narrates his odyssey, Richard gives the reader a complete picture of Talleyrand and its inhabitants.
Published in 1962. The DJ is present but is torn and scuffed. There is foxing to the book; mostly to the edges of the pages. The cover and binding are good.
In this book, the author has created a hero who will delight adults as well as young children.
