That Exciting Holiday.

By Nigel Strong.

London, C.S.S.M (Children’s Special Service Mission?), nd (guess: 1940s).

Treasure! Burglars! Philately! Adventure! Rescues! Reward money! all ‘Interwoven with the theme of divine mercy’ — so you know it’s got to be exciting.

(I know: there’s nothing remotely funny about the title — but the title and the cover illustration are just a little funny together … right?)

It won't surprise you to learn that I'm quite keen on books, and spend as much of my spare time as possible picking over second hand book stalls and charity book sales with my surprisingly delicate claws.
