It's been published a couple of times in the last ten years; the problem is
that the publishers are all smaller houses and distribution seems spotty.
My copy is a white trade paperback with one of the Millar illustrations
(Noah's Ark) as the cover and was published by Books of Wonder in 1996. I
saw the hardcover version of this one two weeks ago in a used bookstore. I
can't recommend this edition highly because there are SO many typos
The more recent edition is by SeaStar Books, also in trade and HB, and has a
Paul Zelinsky cover. Amazon.com has that for sale.
Despite my later dissatisfaction, I about fell over when I saw the book at
Powell's way back when. I had just about given up on ever finding it. It
was the first E. Nesbit book I ever read to my kids.
