This illustrated story is a compilation of two previous stories by Maxwell Grantly: ‘Dancing Della and the Empty Gin Bottles’ and ‘Dancing Della Finds Her Hat.’ Therefore, if you have read these two stories, you are advised not to download this particular edition.
Della loves to dance at the Smugglers’ Arms, for loose change, to supplement her income as a match girl. This is why the regulars all call her ‘Dancing Della – the Match Girl.’ One day her life was thrown upside-down, when she accidentally stumbled upon a hidden den for thieves. Discover what happened to Dancing Della and find out whether she ever escaped from the evil clutches of the thieves.
However, as is common with stories by Maxwell Grantly, you can always expect that something strange will happen and you will discover that Della’s adventure is filled with both suspense and danger.
This eBook is filled with a number of delightful illustrations, which accompany the story.
If you are interested in reading this story, it can be downloaded free of charge from Barnes & Noble, Blio, iBooks, Inktera, Kobo, Lulu and Smashwords. Sadly, the software at Amazon does not allow a zero pricing and so (if you use a Kindle) you may also download it – but at a very small charge. Simply type “Maxwell Grantly” or “Dancing Della” into the search bar at any of these sites.
(This story contains an encounter with a ghost and so it may not be suitable for very young children. Parents should always exercise their discretion by glancing through the pages first, knowing the material that their child is comfortable with.)
