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. Tanned edges w/a small soil spot to bottom edge, faint soil mark to bottom edge of back cover, price impressions/smudging to top right corner of front end paper, light wear to corners/spine ends, in rubbed dust jacket w/impressions/scratches, faint sunning to spine (common with this title), small nick to top of front fold, light general wear.
