From Miss Pearce's pen we expect a book to be readable and she has not failed us.

Philippa Pearce 1920 – British writer, brought up in Great Shelford, a village just outside Cambridge in England. Philippa Pearce’s father was the flour-miller and they lived in the house beside the mill on the River Cam, where she swam, fished, canoed and skated. Although Pearce wrote several collections of short stories – including The Elm Street Lot (1969), The Shadow-Cage and other Tales of the Supernatural (1977), The Lion at School (1985) and The Rope and Other Stories (2000), and a retelling of Brian FairfaxLucy’s The Children of the House (1968, later reissued as The Children of Charlecote) – she.

The rope hung from top to bottom of his dream. The Parker children's home becomes a battlefield because they want a pet while their mother declares that she will have no gerbils in her house. The rope hung softly, saying nothing, doing nothing. Intense experiences of childhood are vividly brought to life in these eight atmospheric tales. A gripping collection of short stories from award-winning author Philippa Pearce. 1 054. Published: 2000.

The author of the classic children's novel Tom's Midnight Garden, Philippa Pearce was a writer of rare excellence. The comparatively few titles she produced were all marked by extreme sensitivity as well as consummate writing skill. Pearce's next book, A Dog So Small, was rejected by the redoubtable Mabel George at Oxford University Press for being too depressing.

Set before the first First World War, this book tells the story of Tom, Laura, Hugh, and Margaret, whose home is the great house, Charlecote, set in the Warwickshire countryside. Despite their privileged background, the children are not always happy - their parents arestern and Tom is sent away to boarding school. But when the holidays come, everything changes and the four of them have many adventures together in the vast grounds of the house.* Originally published in 1968, this is a welcome reissue of a book which 'movingly shows the close bond between the "upper class" children and servants in a great house, when both feared and suffered the hand of authority.'
