share on Facebook

$10.98

Originally printed in 1910, and translated from the German edition.

The story starts in Hong Kong “in the old days” when it was but a small population. A Catholic church was being built and Willy Brown, a student, insisted on climbing the scaffolding so that he could see his father’s ship arriving. The Father forbade him to climb, but he disobeyed. Meanwhile, the priest was greeted by a stranger asking for Willy and soon found that Willy’s father had died a few days earlier, and the man was his Guardian who was to give Willy a large inheritance. That is just the start of a story filled with suspense. Any youngster from 10 to 100 will learn moral lessons in the process.

Paperback, 126 pages.
