    Every time that he went out for his daily walk Derry had to pass the corner where old Jim sat on his orange box. And every time he lingered there in the hope of a story. For Jim was a sailor who had grown too old for the sea, but who never tired of telling of the adventures he had had on the good ship Rocking Horse, under brave Captain Potts. And Derry would listen; hanging on the old sea dog's every word. Eight sea stories from best-selling author Eleanor Farjeon.
