Jillies No 2
The Jillies are at home this time, and the adventure takes place in London’s Dockland. The Jillies, with Guy and Mark, rescue Belinda, a neighbour’s little granddaughter, from her kidnappers, who have lured her aboard a painted boat. We are in the real Docklands of 1948 – the funnels, the spars and the masts, the mists, the squalor and the colour, all of which Malcolm Saville knew well.
Jilly Day and Chris Giles have written (separate) introductions showing their love for Two Fair Plaits, and Stephen Bigger has written the publishing history.
Two Fair Plaits is printing now and will be published in mid October.
