A girl for whom studying isn't a particularly strong suit is "threatened with no summer holiday away from home unless she gets a better school report." Red cloth w/black lettering/decoration to front cover, black spine lettering, 241 pages, dust jacket illustration (matching frontispiece) by J.H. Hartley. Slant, bumped/lightly worn corners/spine ends, soil along bottom cover edges, foxed page edges, a little light internal soil, in a dust jacket that has fought the good fight, but lost, and is now worn, torn and chipped, but which I have placed in a protective mylar sleeve to prevent further damage. Scarce in a jacket of any kind, even one as weary and time-worn as this.
