Jim at the Corner




A classic tale from one of the UK's most notable and well-loved children's authors, Eleanor Farjeon, and beautifully illustrated by renowned artist, Edward Ardizzone.

Every time he went out for his daily walk, Derry had to pass the corner where old Jim sat on his orange box. And every time he lingered there in the hope of a story. For Jim was a sailor who had grown too old for the sea, but who was never tired of his adventures on the good ship Rocking Horse under brave Captain Potts.
