‘Out past the shallows, past the sandy-bottomed bays, comes the dark water – black and cold and roaring.’
I am slowly running out of books from my childhood but have been on the phone to my mum to send me some more that she has on her shelf. I love looking back at books that I have enjoyed as a child and I am finding so many of you also have enjoyed them as children too and have shared your fond memories.
Georgie was not exactly what you call clean…his mum had finally had enough and let him go. I remember finding the book very funny with the other people looking disgusted at Georgie and covering their children’s eyes, the many many dogs following him down the street and the flowers wilting as he sat next to them.
With each of my Throwback Thursday books so far there have been fairly special memories attached to them and this one is no different.
