72 pp, 10 3/4" H. Colour illustrations. "In words and pictures of rare imaginative power, this book tells the story of a very special year in the life of a medieval priory - the year when the mysterious Blemyahs (beings with their faces on their chests) came. Working by night, unseen by the Brothers, the Blemyahs carved the misericords under the seats in the Quire stalls - images of Adam and Eve, Noah, the Three Kings and many others, which came to life as they were carved. And all through the year there was trouble, caused by the youngest Blemyah's most knotty creation - the cheeky, ever-meddlesome imp, Ruffin - who was finally cured of his naughtiness by the touch of a new-born Baby's hand." Light to moderate edge wear - mainly on bottom edge of boards, small shallow bump to bottom edge of front board. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing.
