General comments: Purchased at a secondhand book stall in Golpark. Hardback, yellow boards with illustration, 240 p. ISBN 5-05-000038-6. Designed by Yuri Ivanov.
I have included pictures of an illustrated page and of the illustrated endpapers featuring the titular Dennis. Few things about a book make me as happy as beautiful endpapers, and Soviet publications usually have excellent examples of this.
