THE SAVAGES ON GALE ISLAND., Brereton, D. Katherine.

Author Name    Brereton, D. Katherine.

Title   THE SAVAGES ON GALE ISLAND.

Publisher    Spring Books, London, n.d.

Seller ID   21999

204 pp, small 8vo (7 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Pictorial endpapers, colour frontispiece, b&w illustrations. One of 'The Halcyon Library' series. "The 'Savages on Gale Island' are the Rocksavage twins, Thom and Grizelda, who are to spend a few weeks on this remote island to recover from an attack of measles. The children are delighted with the island itself, but become even more excited - and somewhat bewildered - when they find themselves involved with gypsies, professor s , m y s t e r ious strangers and all kinds of puzzling goings-on, in a race for an unknown goal. Their natural curiosity and great common sense lead the two children to discover a strange secret passage running beneath their castle home; a myste ri ou s l ik en es s be tween someone long gone from Gale Island and someone recently installed there; and many other seemingly unconnected mysteries....Perhaps the strangest feature is the series of metal discs which Grizelda finds as the hunt pro gre sse s and wh ich sh e lea rns to interpret as a progress report of her rivals!" Minor browning to pages, slight fading to spine color and at edges of boards, darkening and tiny stain on top of textblock. Dust jacket has moderate edge wear, l ight edg e wrin klin g, a few s mall chips and tiny tears, light soiling, two light creases on spine, a few tiny dints andn tiny scuff on front panel, light browning on inside. Very Good-/Good+
