(His family) must find him a most unusual tutor who could teach him arithmetic, algebra, Egyptian, Greek and modern history, and several foreign languages, including Chinese. But where could they ever find a teacher who knew so many things? Finally it was decided that the only one with so much knowledge was - a cat!....(Thoug h Barnac, Squire of Catnap,) was willing to teach the boy, he insisted that Johnny must also learn to think for himself. And so one morning, when a drop of water splashed on Johnny's book, he soon reasoned where it came from - the ceiling . A n d t h e splash of water was a tear. This tear, though Johnny did not at first realize it, was the beginning of another exciting quest. For Phoebe the Spider was crying because he had lost a treasure, the Magic Hat. And Johnny, at Barnac' s s ug ge st i on , de cided to find it. The search would put all his new knowledge and keener wits to a splendid test...." Minor bump at three corners, very light edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wea r/ wr i nkl ing , s ev era l sma ll tears - one with some surface paper loss, light to moderate rubbing and soiling, very small closed tear on each hinge, light browning to spine and flap-folds. Very Good/Good
