Hardcover: Bright red cloth binding with title and illustration on frontboard. Clean endpapes and pages. Jafta's journey from his rural South African village to the town where his father works is everything he had hoped for.
Beautifully illustrated in lush, warm sepia browns and tans.
Illustrations by Lisa Kopper, printed by Carolrhoda Books Inc in 1984, this near perfect 9.25"" x 7.25" second edition hardcover copy features 22 pages full of charming illustrations.
Nice tight binding. Lightly rubbed along outside edges. .Original dustjacket, covered in Mylar but has absolutely no goo and glue residue like one finds with most ex-libris books, just a simple rubber stamp mark inside that reads " Manchester Elementary School Library South Windham, Maine" and the card envelope at the back.
No grubby fingerprints, pencil marks or dog-ears. I personally believe this book sat on someone's book shelf for the past 27 years, because it looks like it's barely been opened.
Surrender Dorothy. From my bookshelves to your hands, sent with love.
