"The Magic Walking Stick" is a fantastical children's story about a pair of magical walking sticks; one that will cease to function if it is used for any practical purpose, and another that will cease to function if it isn't. Unfortunately, our protagonist doesn't know which one he possesses. It's a charming and entertaining tale perfect for bedtime reading. John Buchan (1875 - 1940) was a Scottish historian, novelist, and politician. He wrote many thrillers, historical novels, histories and biographies whilst simultaneously being a prominent figure in public life.

Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive.
