This is a story with multiple interest, sailing, ponies and smuggling. It is about Alex and Beryl, the heroines of Menace on the Moor, now staying in Cornwall with their ex-governess, Miss Allen. They meet Keith Fennel who tells them about the smugglers and from there on the story moves fast until almost in a twinkling we come to the denouement. Marjorie Mary Oliver has given us an adventure story full of lively and convincing characters. 110pp. Size: 8vo Crown (7½" x 5") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
