Light green decorated boards, illustrated endpapers. Though best known for his adult fiction and mysteries, like The Thirty-Nine Steps, Buchan also wrote children's books, like this delightful story of a young man named Bill who buys a walking-stick from a wizened old man sitting under a hornbeam along a lane. The walking-stick has curious properties, which serves Bill well during his many adventures. ; 176 pages
