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.
