Holiday at the Dew Drop Inn – 1st edition

£19.99

Product description

A One End Street Story
Written & illustrated by Eve Garnett
Heinemann, London, Melbourne, Toronto, 1962: 1st edition.
Hardback; 135 x 200 mm; blue boards with titles in gold on spine; 277 pages; illustrations within text. No dust jacket.
The book is in good condition. The binding is sound. Some fading of the spine. Page end foxing. Small pencil marks back endpapers.
“Holiday at the Dew Drop Inn” is the third and final book in the series by Eve Garnett which began with the award-winning “The Family from One End Street” in 1937, and continued with the long-delayed “Further Adventures of the Family from One End Street” (published in 1956). It describes Kate Ruggles' summer holiday at the Dew Drop Inn in the fictional village of Upper Cassington.
“Kate loves the country so much that kind Mr and Mrs Wildgoose invite her to spend the whole of the summer holidays with them at The Dew Drop Inn, so she says goodbye to her mother and father and her six brothers and sisters, and sets off by train with a shiny black mackintosh and some brand-new gumboots. The Wildgooses are just as kind as she remembered them, and there is a big excitement for her when The Dew Drop Inn is to take part in the concert and flower show. Kate is kept busy learning how to make cakes and jam, discovering where all sorts of wild flowers grow, and writing an essay. But the most difficult thing of all is deciding which of her poems to recite at the concert.”
