Summer at World’s End
Tom, Carrie, Em and Michael are still living on their own at World's End. In between wondering where the next meal will be coming from, and trying to avoid interfering grown-ups, they are never short of fun and excitement. Carrie cannot stand to see an animal suffer, and when she sees a beautiful horse in trouble, her and her friend Lester hatch a scheme to free it. What with sick monkeys, working after-school jobs and sheltering a runaway, life seems complicated enough. But when Carrie plunges into another rescue operation, more perilous than any she has attempted before - putting her, and faithful dog Charlie, into terrible danger - things quickly spiral out of control. Desperately the children struggle to save Charlie from a dreadful fate; but it is a race against time. Summer at World's End, originally published in 1971, is the second book about the extraordinary family who live at World's End. To discover more of their amazing adventures read The House at World's End, World's End in Winter and Spring Comes to World's End.
