Stamp, Cordelia.
Children's Captain Cook.
Caedmon of Whitby.

Some delightful paintings by children from the Whitby area have been brought together in a charming little book that tells Cook's life-story. Among many lovely paintings those on pages 20 and 21 showing the perils of being at sea are especially good. What at first glance seemed yet another routine "Cook for children" is far from that and is much recommended.
