You are my hero! This book was an essential part of my childhood and adolesence. Unfortunately, one of my brothers absconded with it and I have been looking for a used copy. But I have always been looking under a slightly incorrect name (since the cover on the original had fallen off long before I was born.) Your post has corrected me (and the illustrations assure that it is the correct book) and now I have a copy wining its way to me. Thanks!!
