Stick Man by Julia Donaldson 1st / 1st 2008
London: Alison Green, (2008). First edition. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper is brilliantly illustrated with bright frontal illustrations and very little signs of wear. It has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks and are tightly bound at the spine. The text blocks are bright and white. Overall, this is a near fine copy of a very rare first printing. A children's story about an anthropomorphic wooden stick who becomes separated from his family home and his Odyssey-like adventure to return there. He is eventually reunited with his family in the ‘family tree’ because of his interaction with Father Christmas. Adapted for the small screen by the BBC and a staple over the festive period. The first edition is becoming rare.
