Description: "A rollicking, rumbustuous adventure story set in the days when pirates sailed the seas and no traveller was safe.
When Lucy's father, a sea-cook, disappears – along with his ship and all its crew – somewhere off the West Indies, she is certain that he has been captured by pirates. A midnight visit from a sinister stranger called Half-a-Man and a purse of Spanish gold set the brave little girl on a quest to find here father – a quest that lands her in the midst of a swashbuckling adventure full of danger and heroism."

Excellent colour illustrations throughout – several of which are full-page or double-spread.

Glazed pictorial boards repeat jacket design. Spine and corners are straight. Unclipped (£8.95/$18.95) jacket is scuffed and creased along the upper edge, but remains complete and loss-free. A few pages are lightly creased from handling; otherwise the book is as new.

A lovely copy of a rare title.
