Hardback, no dust jacket as published. Laminated pictorial boards. Partial discolouration to the cream coloured section of the front cover. In otherwise excellent, clean condition; no names, inscriptions or other marks. Binding is firm and tight. Slim and unpaginated book. The king of the Valley of Gold and his people were unhappy, for there were no stars in the night sky above their valley. All the most powerful witches and magicians had promised to make stars, and all had failed. Now the king, impatient with these tricksters, vowed to chop off the head of the next person who claimed to be able to make stars but couldn't. Nevertheless, Big John was determined to try - even though the Bad Wizard was out to stop him.
