Susan and the Spae-Wife

The heading and first illustration from the last of the Susan short stories, Susan and the Spae-Wife, published in the Collins' Annual in  1960. This story is set on Arran just after Susan Muddles Through, following the departure of the Gascoignes after their two-week sojourn on the island. But if Susan is hoping for peace and quiet after the Ghastly family have left, she is in for a shock. The post office is held up and the fair is to be visited by the famous writer, Mr. Rock Carlisle.
