Aboard the Bulger


"All ages will enjoy this first-class voyage on a tramp steamer exactly designed for the navigating skill of five children... The Bulger takes us all off the beaten track." (The Glasgow Herald, 1936( It is 1934. Five children run away from a cruel orphanage, steal a magical steam ship, and go on many marvellous adventures around the Hebridean Islands. A wild and rollicking tale where children take hold of their destinies. As timely now as it was when it was first published, climb Aboard the Bulger and sail out into uncharted waters facing mysterious witches and harnessing your courage in the face of the unknown. The book had a huge print run from London Methuen, but their warehouses were bombed in 1940 in Paternoster Row; five million books were lost in the fires caused by tens of thousands of incendiary bombs. Consequently, there were very few copies in circulation. This is the resurrection of a successful children’s adventure story.
