96 pp, 8 1/16" H. B&w illustrations. "Can you fall through a hole in the water? How do you make Purple Cow Pudding? Can you remember someone who doesn't exist? Why shouldn't a wool mill be run by sheep? Why isn't the sky yellow and spring flowers blue? How do you get the fattest woman in the world out of a cottage that is almost smaller than she is? You'll find all the answers in these stories about Emily, who has some strange adventures or says she does. You may not believe in what falls on her from the sky (her sisters didn't) and it surely can't be true that she shouts out Martian words in her sleep, but can you explain away that mysterious little yellow van? Or the fact that the village under the sea is really there on the map? As well as ghosts and dreams there are lots of ordinary things in this book, like building a beach bonfire or mending a car's fan-belt. Peter Rush's line drawings beautifully reflect the subtle mixture of fantasy and solid reality which is so important a part of these stories." Contents: The Extraordinary Wool Mill; Beach Menu; The Little Yellow Van; Pegglara Pellew; The Hole in the Water; Forgotten; Cold Feet; The Fattest Woman in the World; 'They're Coming!'; A Spring Walk. Small stamp mark on title page, slight color fading to top edge of boards and spine. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning - mostly at edges.
