Bloomsbury, 1992, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good, First Edition, Illustrated By: Sempe
300 g; 128 pages, illustrated with full-page colour drawings (and a double page one also) by Sempe, who is very reminiscent of Australia's Leunig. Neither the book nor the jacket show any signs of damage. "A bully's village childhood with all the traditional attributes -- father, mother, brother, sister, a house on a lake, tree climbing, going to the races, music lessons, a bicycle, a crush on a girl in the class -- is bedevilled by the mystifying appearances of the eccentric Mister Sommer. Moving through the landscape in silent haste, like a man possessed, with his empty rucksack and his long, odd-looking walking stick, Mister Sommer runs like a black thread through the boy's days." -- front fold over blurb Size: 12mo (Small Hardcover).
