Blake, Quentin. New in New jacket. Book. 8vo-over 7¾-9¾" tall. In a delightful month-by-month journey through the passing year, Roald Dahl mixes past and present; reminisces of childhood and adolescence are interwoven with his observations about the changing seasons and the festivals we celebrate. Dah's love of nature was a deep and abiding one. He kept careful notes about the animals, birds, flowers, plants and berries of the countryside around his home, Gypsy House. IN the last year of his life, he recorded his thoughts in this fresh and memorable account. Delightful for adults and children equally. It is a book to linger over, to savor and enjoy, and to return to year after year. Color illustrations. Light wear at the corners.
