Notes: This is one of 250 signed and numbered copies of the 10th anniversary edition of one of the most beloved children's picture books of the 1990s. GHMILY the basis of a virtual empire of spin-offs and reissues. The first edition was published in the UK in 1994.
McBratney (1943–2020) was an Irish writer with more than fifty books to his name, but this one outsold them all combined.
Edition + Condition: First printing of this anniversary edition (with a numberline ending in 1). A fine hardcover copy in a very near fine white cloth slipcase with one small smudge. This is copy 97 of 250 signed on the title page by McBratney and Jeram. Scarce!
Publication: London: Walker Books, 2004.
