Dennis The Menace by Hank Ketcham


This is a true collectible hardcover, no dust jacket as issued by publisher. 1952 Henry Holt Publishing. Very clean and unmarked inside. Binding tight and straight. Only a hint of foxing inside front cover. Hardcover boards front and back very good with only light wear. Black and white photo of author on back cover. Few minor scratches on back cover with some very light foxing on front. Very good solid copy. No writing or marks inside.

1952 is the first appearance of Dennis The Menace. The popular TV show ran from 1959-1963. Dennis become a beloved character who starred in books, television and movies. A childhood staple, this copy is a wonderful addition to any library.
Dennis was always in trouble but caused more trouble for around him in his mischievous childhood. (Can't we all relate!). The author based this character on his own son when his wife complained that their son Dennis had wrecked his room and proclaimed " Your son is a menace". The rest is history.

We love our books and want you to love them too!! Thank you for looking
