Picture of Apple Bough

Apple Bough

1967 edition. Illustrated by Margery Gill

Rubbing to edges and corners bumped.  Spine and covers creased.

But that was years ago, before Sebastian became famous and they all travelled to country after country while he gave concerts on his violin.  The other three, Myra, Wolfgang and Ethel, were all terribly tired of following him about, as if he were a dog and they were the tail; but how could they persuade their parents, who thought they loved all the excitement, that they just wanted to stay in one place?

Myra, egged on a little by Grandfather, began 'Operation Home' and thetothers started making their own plans.  At last, when Ethel began serious training to be a ballet dancer, and Wolf got a part in a film, it was imposible for them to accompany Sebastian on his next four, and the day when they would have a home again came a litle closer...
