1st Edition. Plastic comb binding. 4to  11" - 13" tall.

First edition of this farmyard-set children's book, featuring eight wonderful moveables of farm animals such as ducks, goats, and pigs. This wonderful moveable/pop-up features eight "animations" by Vivienne Blake. Each on a color-illustrated page, the unusual pop-ups each comprise a long row of illustrations of a particular animal ascending in size which is accordion-folded flat until unfurled. Illustrator Vivienne Blake was known for her charming animal illustrations. Book near-fine, with moveables perfect and only a couple of rub marks to bright boards. Dust jacket extremely good, with only light rubbing and a few closed tears to extremities (presents beautifully in mylar). A most desirable copy.
