Acceptable. A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (However the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text. Book may be a price cutter or have a remainder mark.

Near Fine in near fine jacket. The book is clean, straight, and tight in an unclipped dust jacket. "A brave young mouse and his lady fair find a seemingly deserted castle one fine summer day, cross over the drawbridge, and venture in, unaware that a villainous outlaw has been stalking them. Once they are inside, the villian slams shut the outer door and turns the key on them." No words-lovely watercolors. small book.
I first bought this book for my son 33 years ago. That copy has been so well loved it its falling apart. His two sons also love the book so I was forced to track down a copy on the other side of the world. Children love the personalities of the little mice - the adventurous "Prince Malcom" and the nervous "Lady Matilda". They empathise with her fears of the bats and dragon, admire the bravery of the staff swinging prince and enjoy the come uppance of "The Evil Rat" . There is a filmic quality in the structure of these text free books and children can construct the story for themselves from the images. The body language and gestures are easily interpretable by quite young children. Trust this copy will last another generation.
