description -

Madeline (Frank) Brandeis, born and educated in San Francisco, traveled the world in search of stories to tell, aiming the lens of her camera at the lives of her characters. 


plot -

Part children's book, part travelogue.  "Little English Tom and little American Bob met, fought and became friends on the great steamer that took them from New York to Plymouth [England]. Bob and his mother were going to travel to England - Tom, working his way across as a page boy."And it was Tom's glowing tales of England's history, her heroes and her beauties, that gave Bob a keener appreciation of the glamourous places he visited - Stonehenge, Clovelly, Stratford-on-Avon - and the great city of London."Through all his sightseeing Bob thought of the English lad who had taught him so much - but who had seemingly made away with Bob's mother's precious locket. Little did the Americans know under what difficulties Tom was struggling to return it to them!"
