Seller ID   25207

112 pp, 8vo (8 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "This is the unvarnished narrative of the adventures of Caroline and Eddie Bell, aged twelve and ten, who were among the first children sent from England to America in the summer of 1940. The man who asked them to write their own book said: 'Tell about the things you like and the things you don't like. Don't pull any punches. Americans can take it.' Americans can not only take it, but will love it. It is a gorgeous, high-spirited do c u m e nt. The impact of our daily routine, with its excitements and it disappointments too, seems just as diverting to us as it is to them." Some areas of light dis-coloration on boards, endpapers are browned, several tiny ink/dye marks on pages 3 0/ 31 a nd at edges/margins of a few other pages, light browning on edges of text block, slight scuff across fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has pieces missing at edges and some tears (text is complete on flaps and most of title), moderate br own ing - heavier on spine and flap-folds, now in a mylar sleeve. Good+/Poor
