Puffin Covers 5



Storm Ahead by Monica Edwards. Illustrated by Geoffrey Whittam. Puffin Story Book 106. First published 1953, Puffin edition 1957.

Monica Edwards has been one of my favourite authors since childhood and for me, Storm Ahead is her best book. It tells the story of a lifeboat disaster, based on a true event of 1928. Although I have a hardback edition of the book, I will never part with my old Puffin copy, yellow pages and all. Puffin published one other of her books, The White Riders.

I love Storm Ahead. The very end always makes me cry.
I love the trip to Hastings to buy the Christmas presents and then the Christmas Eve tour of the village with the pony and trap. One of my favourite Christmas scenes.
Me too. It's something about Meryon's line about "more toys than all the children in the world" that makes me well up.
