Beaky the Greedy Duck, 1951


Mick the Disobedient Puppy   is the eighth in the ‘Animal Stories’ series, 497.   As with the other books in this series, it was written by Noel Barr and illustrated by Percy Hickling.

This is a storybook intended to be read to young children.  Most of the stories deal with ‘naughty’ animals and the lessons they learn by the end of the book.  ‘Beaky’ is no exception – although the lesson meted out to Beaky does seem a bit harsh.  The earliest copies of this book were originally published with a dustwrapper.

This  is a matt copy which has been carefully covered in clear plastic.  If you’re a collector, you won’t like the lamination, but if you want to enjoy the story again or share with a child, the clear plastic has helped keep the book in good condition.   The pages are generally nice and clean, although there are some pale brown stains on the first few pages and a couple of thumb marks.  This copy dates from the later-1960s and has the original price of 2/6 on the back.
