Cloth, G. 255pp, front endpapers replaced, cloth rather rubebd & worn, a fair copy of a scarce book. A story for children, written by Alexander Sutherland Neill [ 1883-1973 ] educational pioneer, who founded the Summerhill School where children are given much freedom to organize themselves & their lessons. As might be expected the book follows his own idiosyncratic ideas where children are concerned-'The child wants thrills; the adult wants to be diverted. You can't easily shock children. You can make them mow down cannibals with a machine gun, make them wade in blood, but there is nothing shocking in it to them'-and so the book contains these elements.
