New York: William Morrow and Co., 1981. 1981 First Printing with full printing number line. NEAR FINE in VERY GOOD+ price-intact dust jacket. A fresh, clean, totally unmarked and tightly bound copy. Pages are crisp and fine. Hardcover of illustrated paper over boards is clean, lightly edge rubbed - corners and spine ends lightly bumped with small tears and rubs. Unclipped jacket features a lovely full-wrap illustration. Jacket is clean and bright: edges slightly rubbed and there are tiny chips and creases to corners of flap and spine folds. Some spotting to bottom of reverse (unprinted) side of jacket does not show on printed side. Jacket is in a clear, archival protector. Color illustrated endpapers are clean and bright - there are two short tears to endpaper at front hinge, not affecting binding strength; binding is very sturdy. A story of Hilda the bird-watching cat. She thinks she'd enjoy hunting them too, but her talent doesn't lie in that direction. Beautifully illustrated throughout with color as well as black & white drawings by Susan Bonners, author and illustrator of many children's books, including "Edwina Victorious "and "The Silver Balloon." An exceptionally well-preserved copy, scarce in this condition. 8-1/4 x 10". 32 pages. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good+. Illus. by Bonners, Susan.
