Rubbing to edges and corners bumped. Spine and covers creased.
Four runaways, Mike, Peggy, Nora and Jack, find a secret hiding place - a deserted island on a lovely lake. This is the story of how they build their own willow-tree house, and grow crops, while they live for a year without anyone knowing they are there.
They fish for food, gather delicious wild berries, and finally smuggle a cows across for milk, anch chickens for their eggs.
The Secret Island is a wonderful adventure story.
