125 pp, 8" H. Charming b&w illustations by Kate Greenaway Medal winner Antony Maitland. "Shellover (a tortoise) woke up with his head full as ever with wonderful stories. Mrs. Candy and her pets: the cat, the dog, the cow and the chickens are entranced with all the new stories. There are green-clad dancers who vanish at cockcrow. A strange feathered child hatches from a speckled egg. A baby is fished out of the sea. Ordinary-seeming children make snowmen who can talk, and have a friend who is a witch. Shellover tells a new story about Minnie the cat, and her inquisitive kittens; another about two boys in an adventure playground; and the little girl and her friends, the horse and the hen. When Shellover gets sleepy this time, the pets decide to tell their own stories. The results are delightful!" Small letter "R" in red ink, birthday gift inscription and some soft creases on front free endpaper; one page with a dog-ear crease; very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine; one tiny corner crease; tiny mark on bottom of text block; very light edge wear; two tiny dints on top edge of front board. Dust jacket has very light browning on spine, small light pink stain on inside of front panel, top edge and flap-folds; light edge wrinkling; wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds with some tiny chips and tears; minor rubbing and soiling.
