First in this, paperback, edition. From the cover: “Why should anyone want to steal The Blue Admiral from Mrs. Newman? It was such a bad picture, and completely worthless. It seemed odd to us. Us being me, Peter Hadley and I’m fifteen, my two sisters Eileen and Christy, and Bobby my younger brother. We live at Tilford Park, near Greenwich, and Mrs. Newman lives just down the road from us. Why The Blue Admiral was stolen so intrigued us that we just had to make a few enquiries into the matter ourselves!”
