182 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w illustrations. "Stratford Street was certainly a come-down after Pilgrim's Buildings. No wonder Dad had been in two minds about The Shop. Why did they have to move there? (Eight-year-old Jinnie Friend has many alarming experiences as she learns to cope with a new neighbourhood and new neighbours and) clings desperately to her family pride. The Friends are a Cut Above their neighbours. They must be. After all, Dad was a butler once upon a time, the next best thing to being a Toff himself. And they aren't poor. Haven't they savings, and a carpet, and mahogany furniture; not to mention a silver tea-service and silver spoons and a silver button hook? Silver Everything, just about. The pangs and pleasures of childhood are recalled with humour and insight in these two delightful stories set in Tyneside in the 1920's and based on the author's own early experiences." Dust jacket has one tiny tear and one tiny chip - both on the flaps.
