Written and illustrated by Raymond Briggs
Published by Hamish Hamilton, London, in 1977
Condition: Excellent (would be mint but an inscription to a previous owner inside cover)
A FIRST EDITION of Fungus the Bogeyman from 1977, in excellent condition. Illustrator Raymond Briggs was probably best known for his grumpy Santa, but this lonely green ogre has stayed in our mind since childhood.
The book follows Fungus as his day progresses, and as he undergoes a mild existential crisis, pondering what his seemingly pointless job of scaring mundane humans is really for.
A collectable first edition of a 1970s British classic.
