Killer Dog

£19.99

Product description

A children's story about a mystery attacker of sheep in Romney Marsh, this book by Monica Edwards is written with the enthusiasm, exuberance, unselfconsciousness and love of farming life which characterises all her works. It is in fact the novelisation of her script for the Children's Film Foundation film The Dawn Killer (1958).
Monica Edwards began writing stories while she and her husband were building up their farm (Punch Bowl Farm) on Romney Marsh, using her daily experience and her surroundings for inspiration. Her many books have been much-loved by children of all ages and are endlessly delightful.
This book, bound in blue cloth, with silver titles etc on the spine, has a pictorial dust-jacket which is showing obvious (but reasonable, in view of its age) signs of wear (multiple tears with some loss). There is a faded strip at the top of the front cover, some shelf wear to top and tail of the spine, and minimal bumping to the top front corner. Both end-papers are somewhat stained and discoloured, but the pages are otherwise clean and bright, and the binding is generally firm. A few pages have grubby finger marks. The book is illustrated delightfully in black & white by Sheila Rose.
