Book cover: “Midnight Adventure” by Raymond Briggs (Hamish Hamilton, 1961)

A slight chapter book for young boys. The narrative is uncomplicated and the vocabulary suitable for modern readers, though the setting and plot reflect a post-war interest in tales of action adventure and Biggles-esque derring-do. Dark, scratchy illustrations shade the night-time escapade.
