The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Little English Tom and little American Bob met, fought and became friends on the great steamer that took them from New York to Plymouth. Bob and his mother were going to travel in England—Tom, working his way across as a page boy, was going home.

And it was Tom's glowing tales of England's history, her heroes and her beauties, that gave Bob a keener appreciation of the glamourous places he visited—Stonehenge, Clovelly, Stratford-on-Avon—and the great city of London.

Through all his sightseeing Bob thought of the English lad who had taught him so much but who had seemingly made away with Bob's mother's precious locket. Little did the Americans know under what difficulties Tom was struggling to return it to them!

The story of how Tom succeeded in returning the locket at last is no more exciting than the Bentley's trip to some of the most interesting spots in England.
