Tale about Mecki, a Hedgehog, fully illustrated in colour on every page. Mecki was the subject of at least 12 German children's books. Always delightfully illustrated, they contain all the necessary elements for a good children's fairy story - gnomes, fairies, animals, pixies, and a happy ending! This is a much reproduced book, but this edition is with the original tan cloth backstrip. 28 x 21 cm. Adverts for 6 other Mecki books on the rear cover. Inscription on front pastedown. Corners worn, edges rubbed, hinges loose. The front paste down appears to have lifted in one place at some time and been pasted back down with a bit of a crease. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
