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: one with the major typographical error, one correcting that error (which was caught early in the game, making the corrected version by far the most common), and one missing an entire leaf. This is the first of those, containing the major error that was subsequently corrected.. Pink cloth w/yellow spine lettering, 233 pages, dust jacket illustration by Marion Stuck. A hint of wear to corners/spine ends, previous owner's stamp to top right corner of front end paper, in dust jacket w/light edgewear, a hint of sunning to spine, mild rubbing/thin impressions, price neatly cut from front flap.
