This is the original cover painting for Clive King's YA novel published in paperback by Penguin/Puffin, 1986. Fred's usual attention to detail and fidelity to realism is evident here, handpainted in acrylic on illustration board, 17" x 22" and signed. Great example of narrative illustration, so rarely seen today!
