First Edition. Octavo, original green cloth titled in orange and dark green on spine panel, decorations in dark green on front & rear covers. 147 pp. Illustrated throughout. Signed and dated in ink by the author on the front free endpaper "Pierre Berton / November 16/1961". A fine copy in a very nearly fine dust jacket with only the faintest hint of rubbing at the extremities. A bright, clean, unread copy of a book which rarely shows up in fine condition.
¶ One of the great classics of 20th century Canadian Children's Books, a heartwarming fantasy novel of an underground world. The first edition is pretty scarce, and this is the only copy I have ever encountered that was inscribed by the author in the year of publication.
