About This Item

New York: The Viking Press, 1981. The author's first novel. The mysteries of life are not easily understood by Plantagenet, the swiftest, the skinniest, and certainly the most charming pig in all of thirteenth century France. His size nonwithstanding, Plantagenet, as the unlikely hero of this light hearted and beautifully illustrated tale, also emerges as a pig of truly noble proportions. Michael Foreman's illustrations - at once elegant and whimsical - capture perfectly the wit and liveliness of a book that can be read both as an allegory about conservation and as a work of completely original - and most definitely adult-humor. A generous list of illustrations provided. Wonderful full-page illustrations and tail pieces to a good number of chapters. Illustrated endpapers. Colourful pictorial full wrap-around dust jacket...Price intact. A very nice copy.. First Edition, First Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Fine.
