Tadsworth, Surrey, Kaye & Ward, 1982. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A fine copy, better than usually found. Boards perhaps a touch toned. Signed by Murpurgo without inscription. A wonderful copy, and a highlight of children's literature collecting. Adapted in 2011 by Steven Spielberg for the big screen, and is currently on its second run in the UK in the West End after a hugely successful world tour. [7257, Hyraxia Books].
