Product description

Monster Book for Girls (Dean & Son, c.1950) - vintage girls' story book
 
This vintage girls' story book - with pictorial board covers depicting three young females with a caravan - contains ten stories by various authors, including "A Song in the Sun" by Gwen Thornber and "Island Adventure" by Geoffrey Morton, with some black and white illustrations in addition to the colour plates.
 
Although it shows various signs of age (see condition description below), the book remains complete and fully legible throughout, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage childhood memorabilia - or a suitable accessory for a recreation of a room setting of its period.
