'Round the World We Sail

I sold this sweet vintage childrens' book in the shop a few months ago, but think the beautiful illustrations are worth sharing here. 'Round the World We Sail by Janet Laura Scott was published in 1939. This sweet book tells the story of twins Jib and Jigger who sail around the world on a clipper ship called Flying Cloud.
