This is a unique Pigeon Post of South Country Secrets by 'Euphan' and 'Klaxon'. This is a 1947 Puffin edition including a charming cover and illustrations by William Grimmond. A family of boys and girls return from South Africa to see England for the first time. They become explorers and detectives, identifying places they had often seen in Daddy's album of treasured snapshots of 'home'. The author is Barbara Euphan Todd (the author of the Worzel Gummidge stories) and her husband. 


South Country Secrets comes curated with all the pretty vintage treats you see pictured. Everything will be beautifully gift-wrapped, making it a special gift or treat for yourself.



Please note that this Puffin book has been very well-loved in the past. The spine and cover is worn, and a previous owner has placed ticks against a list of books on the back cover (they must have been an avid reader!). There is a tear on one of the pages. However the Pigeon feels that this edition is still in readable condition and deserves to be shared as it is such a lovely story!
