1 Allen, Lois Venturesome Voyage
Phoebe and Tim Ashley, orphaned American twins, run away from their foster homes and install themselves on a ship loaded with supplies for the refugees of the Greek and Turkish War. With their talent for getting into mischief, Phoebe and Tim make the sea-crossing a blissfully eventful one. But what begins as a lark turns into a sobering experience when the twins view the tragic aftermath of war - starving children, a desperate raid of the food supplies, a woman so hungry she tries to steal the ship's cat. The twins learn a great deal about selfishness and suffering before they manage to extricate themselves; they also come to think twice about letting others care for them instead of forever trying to look after themselves. A library edition, includes a few markings. The binding has minor wear at the top. The acetate cover has a bit of scuffing. 206 pages, no marks or tears other than those noted. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

5 Carroll, Yvonne Leprechaun Tales
0717126986 / 9780717126989; This selection of six charming tales about Leprechauns and other "little people" has been passed down over the years from one generation to another. They have been a part of Irish folklore for hundreds of years. Tradition has it that Leprechauns are mischievous little people, often cobblers, who have pots of gold hidden away. Humans are always keen to find the gold, of course, but somehow are always outwitted by the Leprechauns' cunning and magical powers. There is something for everyone to enjoy in these stories, especially the battle of wits between "them" and us! ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
