Description

This black and white illustration, appearing on page 124a of the 1896 Hodder and Stoughton reprint, depicts Ellen crossing the brook as Nancy waits for her on the other side. A caption below the illustration quotes a sentence from page 125 and reads, "Ellen set out upon her perilous journey." This quote heightens the sense of anticipation already present in the illustration as Ellen holds her arms out to steady herself as she steps onto a log to cross the narrow brook. Nancy stands on the other side of the brook, holding onto a tree as she clutches at her sock, leaning forward to either mock or encourage Ellen. Foliage surrounds the two girls and a short fence can be seen in the background.
