A children's picture book in 6 chapters, told in verse and prose. A few pages have some wrinkling, but pages are clean with no inscriptions. There are many illustrations printed in bold colours, red, blue, yellow and occasionally green. The binding is loose but still attached, and the end papers are firmly attached. The cover edges and corners are rubbed, and the paper covering the spine is torn, and missing in places, though the white tape underneath is complete.The cover is slightly grubby and has a small stain on the right of the front cover, but the illustrations retain their bright colours. The story begins: "The Terrible Turk, he had ten daughters, And all the ten were terrible talkers. He had baggy white trousers and a little red hat And his sword was a sight to wonder at." A delightful tale, inspired by the illustrator's eponymous doll, in which the Turk's exuberant daughters constantly disturb the quiet, until the one person arrives who can restore calm.
