|Jacket Protector ||Add to Basket
|A few reprintings later the jacket is pretty similar. The author's name which had originally been incorporated into the artwork in capital letters has been carefully painted out and replaced by overprinting with the now standard script version.
The front flap text is augmented at the top and bottom due to the book's having spawned a series, and the back flap is now populated with the titles of other Blyton books. Note that this list doesn't include The River of Adventure, also published in 1955.
