Phyllis A. Whitney: Secret of the Samurai Sword

Phyllis A. Whitney's Secret of the Samurai Sword was published in October 1974 and is the story of Celia and Stephen who are spending the summer in Kyoto with their grandmother. When they find a ghost haunting their garden they wonder if it is a hoax since it has upset their neighbor so much?

This cover by Allan Kass has an oriental flavor as we see our teens spying on the samurai warrior with the figure, the statue, and our heroine's outfit! Allan's children are always great to see because he has the ability to make them age appropriate in both face, expression, and size. I hope you enjoy these covers.
