Description: "Someone is writing horrible, spiteful letters to people in Peterswood. That is the mystery. Who is sending them? Our young detectives, the five Find-Outers, start to look for clues, and once again they have an exciting and amusing adventure."
Illustrated with a number of lovely full-page b&w drawings.
Pictorial covers are a little worn (for 1969!), and there are the circular remains of a sticker on the front cover (refer to image). It can be removed with a little skill and patience. Previous owner has neatly inscribed the digit '4' on the half-title – presumably to remind them that this is the fourth book in the Five Find-Outers series. Pages are tanned around the edges (standard fare in a 45-year-old paperback), but haven't a single speck of foxing, and remain unmarked.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11 cm (7″ × 4.4″). 4to. 125 pp. + 3 pp. catalogue of other books in the Dragon series.
