Tall folio size. Wonderul color pictorially illustrated paper covered boards, blue cloth spine, silk white mauve endsheets. 23 pages. 36 x 27 cm.

The story tells of the legend of a young girl who went into a garden and conversed with several strange creatures, such as a talking mole. Some of them wanted Lili for their queen, and entertained unusual her. Quite an evocative and certainly unique lapbook for children. Remarkably preserved in fine condition. Extremely rare, and copies that do turn up invariably have condition problems owing to its size and fragility.
