  • Kids book abount saphires, emeralds, rubies and possibly pirates

    My memory of this great book has faded a lot but I vaguely remember pictures of a beach and precious stones. Appreciate that there isn't much to go on here but it was one of my favourite books that I read in late 70s or early 80s. It would be fantastic if anyone can remember any more.

    At a guess, it sounds like a How and Why Wonder Book.

    Hmm, possibly Rocks and Minerals?

      Thanks for the reply but it was more of an adventure story rather than a educational book but sorry for the lack of details, I can remeber very little about it now other than I thought it was great as a kid.

      Cheers

          Hi,

          If you're still interested the books you remember were the 'Griffin Pirate Series' by Sheila K. McCullagh.

          for further details look on wikipedia.


          Philip.

              I see there's a follow up response suggesting the 'Griffin Pirate Series' by Sheila K. McCullagh' as the title(s) in question.
              Whilst I'm no nearer to a definitive answer I can state that 'hers' are not the answer. I recall reading the book or books you're thinking of at primary school sometime between February 1966 & July 1968 yet SM's series was published in the seventies AND refer only to pirates by 'colour' rather than by precious stone - Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire.
