ILLUSTRATIONS

He scrambled out of the cupboard, and the boots and goloshes fell off him like spray off a bather (p. 24) _Frontispiece_

FACE PAGE 'If you think cats have such a jolly time,' said Lord Hugh, 'why not _be_ a cat?' 7

It was Mabel who untied the string and soothed his terrors 14

He landed there on his four padded feet light as a feather 17

When Jane went in to put Mabel's light out, Maurice crept in too 21

'Look!' he said, 'look!' and pointed 35

The cart was drawn by an enormous creature, more like an elephant than anything else 85

'Silence!' cried the priest. 'Chosen of the Immortals, close your eyes!' 91

On the lower terrace the royal nurse was walking up and down with the baby princess that all the fuss was about 98

We scalped Eliza as she passed through the hall 213

Sidney threw the rug over her, and rolled her over and over 215

Early next morning he tried to catch fish with several pieces of string knotted together and a hairpin 235

A radiant vision stepped into the circle of light 241

There was a splash 248

'Oh, good-bye!' he cried desperately, and snapped at the worm 256
