112 pp, 8vo (8 3/16" H). "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 document. 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 discoloration on boards, endpapers are browned, several tiny ink/dye marks on pages 30/31 and 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 browning - heavier on spine and flap-folds, now in a mylar sleeve.
