This was one of the Around the World Treasures series of books reprinted by Franklin Watts Inc. It was illustrated in color and black and white by Charles Mozley, with an introduction by author Noel Streatfeild.

I’ve had several editions of this story in my lifetime. Once, a Press photographer arrived at our house to document me reading a simplified version for younger children.

Odds are that this was a Christmas present, because the note on the half-title is in my mother’s penmanship.
