Gerald Rose 'Albert And The Green Bottle'



'Albert and the Green Bottle' by Elizabeth and Gerald Rose, came all the way from Canada this week to join my other favourite vintage children's books. I am so glad it did as it is a lovely book, illustrated by my favourite illustrator Gerald Rose. It is a story of a family who's son builds a boat to sail around the world. On becoming ship wrecked he writes a message in a bottle which is eaten by a giant fish, that his father subsequently lands and the search for Albert is on.
