"Twelve-year-old twins Nicky and Judy and their dog Jokey are marooned on Rockall island, but their parents believe they have drowned. They are held prisoner inside the rock where 'The Master' is hatching terrifying plots to unite the world under his rule. 'The Master' can read other people's minds and hypnotize them into obedience. Due to his advanced age (157), he can hardly speak and only in Latin or proverbs" (Gallix). Gallix A19.
Fine condition, quite scarce thus.
