Jack and Nancy

Quintin Blake

About the book

Jack and Nancy live beside the sea, but the closest they get to the exotic lands and adventures that the sailors have is by listening to the stories they tell.

But, after a WOOSHING, WONDERFUL WIND blows their umbrella away, the siblings are whisked to a far-away island. Can Jack and Nancy find their own adventure and, more importantly, find their way home again?

Soon to be featured on BBC animated special, Quentin Blake’s Box of Treasures.
