Slightly better than very good condition in a very good dustwrapper. Mr Hoppy, a retired bachelor, has a secret passion for the attractive widow, Mrs Silver. But she, alas, lavishes all her affection on another - Alfie, her pet tortoise! Mr Hoppy hatches a wildly ingenious plot to defeat his rival which involves no fewer than 140 tortoises! Wonderful b/w illustrations throughout. A delight for Dahl fans. Blue boards with gilt tile to spine. 63 pages.
Pale browning to cover edges. Wrapper is edge-creased.
