Two and Two is Six
From the front fly leaf: " This whimsical fantasy begins when a bachelor uncle and his lovely niece decide to escape from a firm, stern, no-nonsense English governess named Miss Twombley (pronounced, naturally, Tombs). Into the forest with them they take Uncle Harry's English Setter (who has a very English accent), his Yorkshire Terrier (who is strong on diplomatic protocol), Jezebel (a black cat recently retired from the C.I.A.), Sam the Donkey, Jon-Jon the Morgan horse who sounds like a French train, and Owl, an unforgettable little computerized bird who is very easily upset and who firmly believes that two and two is six. Adventure begins when they meet a real princess bathing in a stream and invite her along - causing an international crisis." Light shelf wear both top and bottom of boards, inscribed, jacket has a couple of small tears but this book presents well overall.
