The Admiral's Caravan

Charles E. Carryl

Children's Novels

It is Christmas Eve, and Dorothy is sitting on the porch of the Blue Admiral Inn when the Admiral, a wooden statue standing on a pedestal at the entrance of the inn, complains about a crack on his legs. She follows him after he falls from the pedestal and embarks on an adventure in the company of two more living wooden statues, Sir Walter Rosettes and the Highlander. Together, they will travel on a sideboard, visit the Tree-Top country, go up and down the Sizing Tower, and meet a crying camel, a talking stork and a large group of dancing animals.
