Set in St. John's, Newfoundland, in 1967, this is the story of a nine-year-old boy "with a myth-making imagination," and his eccentric family. There seem to be three versions of this title: the one with the major typographical error, the one correcting that error (which was caught early in the game, making the corrected version by far the most common), and the one missing an entire leaf. This is the latter, missing pages 213/4, and seems even scarcer than the variant with the error. Pink cloth w/yellow spine lettering, 233 pages, dust jacket illustration by Marion Stuck. Moderate wear to corners/spine ends, a couple of impressions to front cover, light foxing to top edge, in moderately edgeworn dust jacket w/short edge tears to spine ends, 1" tear to top edge of front panel, moderately sunned spine (a common flaw with this title), sunning to rear panel, some rubbing, thin scratches.
