1st Edition Susan, Bill and the Dark Stranger - Malcolm Saville
A few days before Christmas, Susan and Bill go Christmas shopping on Market Street with Pam and Peter -- and since they are all together, they get to go without any parents coming along. They meet a young boy who wants to sell a box that is obviously very special to him. As he is explaining why he needs the money, two men spot the box and attempt to take it. Pam dubs one of the men, The Dark Stranger. The children split up to get away from the man, but meet again to restore the box to its owner and to find out what has happened to make him so desperate.
A first edition hardback book in good pre-loved condition.
