brixtonbrood: (THERMO)
The books of my childhood have been much in my mind at the moment, as Tiny has entered that stage of life where pulling the books off Small's bookshelves is the best game ever. Thus I have re-shelved the Noel Streatfeild's more often than I care to remember, and I had been musing on my lack of copies of the Gemma books, which I loved in my pre-teens. And when I glanced at the Clapham library sale trolley yesterday - there they were - hooray! in the outstandingly hideous 1999 covers the outstandingly hideous 1999 covers - boo!

Which prompted me to find this interesting appreciation of her work, which I commend to your attention if you are that way inclined (I think this probably means you [livejournal.com profile] jinty).
