Green Island illustrated by Carolin Jackson

To my delight I discovered a small pile of  these "Adventures in Reading" booklets in my local charity shop. You might remember I found and blogged one a week or so ago called Cloudy Cove. Of course, it's the illustrations that makes these so appealing now, so completely of their period. Carolin Jackson remains a little opaque to me at the moment. She is not in my dictionary of 20th century book illustrators, nor can I find anything on the Internet except to say that is seems she illustrated quite a lot for the OUP and also worked for Puffin. I've scanned some illustrations from another of these and they are up next...

So the story ends with the boat coming loose and drifting off to sea, leaving the boys happily stranded?
