Enemies on all sides, can stealth and cunning win the day?,
This review is from: Great Northern ? (Red Fox Older Fiction) (Paperback)
Another wonderful story of the Swallows, Amazons and Ds. This time they are far out in the Scottish Highlands and, unusually, it is the mild-mannered Dick, rather than the fiery Nancy who is calling the shots. Rather than ape the myriad reviews that give you a banal synopsis of the plot, I will simply say that this, like all the other books in the series, is a jewel that you and your children will want to gaze upon again and again. If I can find fault with these books, and I'm sure Arthur Ransome would agree with me, it is the dreadful, vulgar cover illustrations that Red Fox Publishing has chosen for their reissue. It is close to sacrilegious that such fine writing should be dressed in such appalling style.

Your perfectly good review is being used to promote a con - perhaps a mistake but more likely a trap.
