First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “For John Charles Gregory III, Love Betty MacDonald.” The first title in the series about a woman who lives in an upside down house, who has a magic chest full of cures for the bad habits of the children who live in her neighbourhood.

Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine and upper board in dark blue. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout by Richard Bennett Spine ends and bottom edge of rear board slightly bumped, mild toning to endpapers. An excellent copy in a jacket with minor wear to ends of the lightly faded spine panel and a short closed tear to lower front corner. A very good copy.
