I've had this probably for 20 years. It's a French children's adventure from 1958, and is inevitab;y a little dated in it's attitudes, and the relaxed reaction to children travelling alone everyone has would be unthinkable today. It's still enjoyable, but I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I had read it when I was 11.
