The Sea Queen.
by Constance Savery, London: Lutterworth Press, 1965.
Illustrated by Cicely Steed.
“Mike is on the beach picking up wood. The beautiful Sea Queen comes drifting in to his feet…”
Lucky old Mike, eh?
But, no, this first book by a member of the notorious Savery family to find a home in my collection is so moralising that it makes my teeth hurt.
Naturally, it was a Sunday School prize book.
