London: Bloomsbury, 1990. xv, + 229pp. Book clean, square. Spine firm, gilt title there-on. Plain blue boards very good. Leaves clean. Illustrated (Posy Simmonds), loose-plastic protected dustjacket price-clipped, mildly edge-creased and indented. From the jacket flap: "'Winnie the Pooh' isn't usually thought of as being subversive, nor are 'The Enchanted Castle', 'The Secret Garden', 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', or 'Peter Pan'. Yet these 'safe' classics endure partly because they satirise conventional adult society and speak with dangerous directness to a young reader's imagination . . . In this witty and engaging collection of essays, Alison Lurie entices us back to that half-forgotten world." Book weight approx. 480g. . First Edition, First Impression. Hardcover and Dustjacket. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
