All the charm, gaiety and delightful satire of this, the best loved of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas, are captured in this unusual little book.

Vivid narrative and fascinating pictures tell the sprightly story of Nanki-Poo, the Mikado's son, who, masquerading as a minstrel, falls in love with Yum-Yum—engaged to Ko-Ko the Lord High Executioner.

The amusing tale, the famous phrases, the even more famous melodies, are all to be found in this unique volume which will delight all lovers of Gilbert and Sullivan.
