1st printing w/complete number sequence. True first edition of the incomparable Australian writer/illustrator's award-winning story of a peculiar evolutionary twist on a desert world surprisingly like Australia, where "The dominant life form is a creature covered in fur but with living steel panels beneath." Winner of the CBC (Children's Book Council) Book of the Year Award for Young Readers, the YABBA (Young Australian Best Book Award) for Older Readers, the KOALA (Kids Own Australian Literature Award), and the KROC (Kids' Reading OZ Choice) Award. The US edition was published a year later, in 2004, and is considerably more common than this true first. A delightful story, beautifully illustrated. Pictorial boards, 141 pages (+ Last Nip and A Note Regarding TruckDogs). Light surface wear to jacket, with 1/4" tear to top of rear fold. An unread, nearly pristine copy.
