I Saw Three Ships, Elizabeth Goudge, Margot Tomes, First American Edition, Coward-McCann, New York, 1969


"Elizabeth Goudge introduces three unforgettable characters in the seafaring stranger who wore gold earrings, the mad Frenchman who was followed through the streets by the town's cats, and dear Rags-and-Bones who seemed to have lived forever.
Elizabeth Goudge weaves a magical tale of mystery and mood which will charm young and old readers alike. Margot Tomes' striking black-and-white illustrations capture the tradition and color of an old English seaport town.
An unusual story of Christmas by a distinguished storyteller."
