Savery wrote unhappily about Four Lost Lambs in her work diary. The twins, who are only seventeen, have antagonized the adults who used to work on the farm and are trying, not always successfully, to cope by themselves. A fly in the ointment is the presence at the seashore of a niece and two nephews who are jealous of Simon's swimming skills and the attention he receives from Merman. There are appropriate differences in the translation. Reprinted, 1973, Guildford : London: Lutterworth Press. Printed by Ebenezer Baylis and Son, Limited, The Trinity Press, Worchester, and London.
Not only was she asked to cut out a substantial amount of the text, the story was chopped further during the printing process to accommodate the pictures. The date, which does not appear in the book, is taken from the work diary and Savery's own list of her publications. For preaching, we have Uncle Paul in Apple Alley, Punch, by example, at the farm, and a mysterious voice in the night that puzzles Punch and frightens Poppet. The older two children are undisciplined and in constant trouble, while the younger boy is unkind and mean-spirited. Adrien picked up a stone and whizzed it with all his might at M. As suddenly as if there had been a jack-in-the-box behind it, the door flew open and out looked a golliwog head with huge round glasses on its bulgy nose. Wingård translates freely, rather than literally, and the English names and places become Swedish, as do the games and foods. This is an excellent story for teachers who enjoy assignments beginning "Compare and contrast...," because here are two very different cousins.
Then she accepted a change in the title, but when the editor wanted a third-person narrative and began rewriting the story, Savery refused. This is a new series in the tradition of the Gateway and Pathway series, but for little children. It is quite possible that the 1966 reprint was issued with two different dust jackets, one for the Golden Way Series and one for the Highway Series. Printed by Western Printing Services Ltd., Bristol. Two dust jackets are available for the 1958 edition, one with a price of 4s. This suggests that they originated at Lutterworth Press, which owns the copyright, rather than with the translators or the foreign publishers. The others had frontispieces in black and white, while the dust jackets often had the same drawing with the addition of a single color. Having managed to make the loan with a smile, Andrew and Josie find that Jesus is lending them something even better in return.

"Out of the sunset sea came the little ship..." and Mike Inge was there on the shore to find and claim it. Then he told a story that began with a baby sister untying the ship and ended with a three-month hospital stay following an auto accident.Intended for older girls who may have earned fewer Sunday School prizes, it has, in my opinion, the least attractive of all the Lutterworth covers for Savery's books. Marjorie is so egregiously wrong and so blissfully unaware of it that we find it as hard as Jean does to forgive her. Printed by Richard Clay (The Chaucer Press), Ltd., Bungay, Suffolk. "It's all a made-up story," cried Mike and ran away. When Savery preaches Christianity, as she often does, she prefers actions rather than words. This is a book about doing, not talking, and from Judy's misadventures to Flip's endurance, her sermon is as much fun as it is instructive. New to the scene is the redhead, Charity Browning, who tells the story. Washington: Gateway Paperback, Christian Literature Crusade (CLC), Ft. The serial is very hard to find, unfortunately, but Five Wonders is not. Copies of all these editions appear regularly on the Internet at reasonable prices.

Now they have returned, miraculously aged only three years since our last meeting. Persons wanting to know more about Auntie Cherry, the statue, and its sculptor should read the Savery serial Rainbow Castle. 5, and the 1966 reprint has a list that includes the original Pathway titles, so presumably it is still part of the Pathway Series.

School novels were popular at the time, which probably explains the final title and why Lutterworth perhaps printed more books than usual, making this title easy to find and purchase. Tabby prowled restlessly up and down, with Philip under her arm and a ball in her hand. Translated, 1960, into German by Elisabeth Penserot as Ein Schiff fährt nach Antiochien. There is a similar addition in the last chapter, where Savery has only "..was so much interested in reciting the parable of the Good Samaritan..." but the German text takes two pages to retell the parable. Savery's first Lutterworth publication is something rare for her: a book with a social message. Translated, 1960, into German by Inge Knorr as Die Kampfhähne von St. The fly in the ointment is Dandaree, a mischievous boy about two years her senior with whom she has been at odds since coming to the boarding school. Most of the many copies available on the used book market are still in their dust jackets and contain bookplates from Sunday Schools. Riding a bus, twins Jane and Mark learn that a boy their age is living at The House in the Woods, great news since they have few playmates.
Unfortunately, Charity has so alienated the rest of the brothers and sisters, that she gets little friendship from anyone other than their foster sister, Ivory Hampton. Later, she is responsible for a more serious incident, and this time her father and an equally innocent family friend must bear the consequences. Alas, Jesus has been killed by the authorities, and yet...
