32 pages / 8.25 x 10.25 x .4 inches / 21 x 25.8 x 1.2 centimeters


Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like, but...

An ex-library book, so all the trappings of that. Protective plastic covering over the dust jacket. Stickers on spine. Markings / scuffings.

Markings / stains on front endpapers.

Several pages have been ripped & subsequently taped. Pages are quite worn in general - markings / stains / smudges / a pencil scribble on one page. You know, it's a good reading copy and is still holding together well, but it's not immaculate by any means.

Some writing / a stamp on title page. Red marking.

Stickers / writing / sticker residue on back end papers.


The Camel Who Took a Walk is an amusing and unusual suspense story of what didn't happen to the camel when he reached the spot where "the shadow of the tree falls across the road." It will delight all who enjoy a story in which the ever-mounting tension of an approaching calamity which fails to come off, adds to the fun and interest.

A tiger, a monkey, a squirrel, and a bird--all have a part in this thrilling and humorous story in which the surprising denouement leaves them--and the reader--completely flabbergasted and--happy.
