Spine and corners bumped. Covers creased.
This is the exciting and interesting story of two sophisticated children, Jean and Dick Fraser, who, owing to the sudden death of their father are thrown unexpectedly upon the care of their very old great-grandmother.
Unable to keep them in her tiny London house, the old lady sends them to a far northern island which she owns.
Having been brought up at fashionable and expensive schools and having spent their holidays in luxurious English and foreign resorts, the children are at first intolerably bored; but it is not long before they find that the island affords many entrancing amusements and adventures, culminating in their discovery of the secret of the island.
