Over Sea Under Stone - Susan Cooper

This is the Twenty-fifth in my one-book-at-a-time bookshelf.

This is a pleasant and likable English children's story written in the mid-60's with a typical English seaside holiday setting and invocations of English history, mythology and culture. In fact it is unremarkable and by itself wouldn't have found a place on my bookshelf. It is what follows that makes Susan Cooper's 'sequence' stand out, but more on that in the next post.
