That is a good guess, Daisy, but it is not correct.

Is this from island of adventure, referring to Jo-Jo? I'll guess Jack is the missing name.
If I could live here on this secret island always and always and always, and never grow up at all, I would be quite happy

No, It is not from Island of Adventure. A good guess, though.

Is it from The Ship of Adventure referring to Mr Eppy? Not sure who the speaker is though. Could be Jack?

I think its from a Find-Outer book...someone talking about Goon...but not sure which one...or even if I'm warm! :lol:

hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

Is it from Smuggler Ben and spoken by Alec talking about the fisher-boy?

You've got it, Eddie. It is Alec speaking about Ben in "Smuggler Ben".

Thank you, Snugglepot. :D

Here’s a new quotation:

It sounds like Dinah afraid someone will bring forth a creepy crawly of some sort, but can't think which book it might be in.

Sorry, Daisy, but it is not Dinah.

Well it has been over a month so I guess I need to give a clue. :?

The quote is from the first book of a series. It is not a long series but it is a favourite of many people.
