Welcome to the site

2001 was the Centenary year of the birth of this popular children's author, and I thought that it would be fitting to produce a view of his work. It has taken more than a year to come to 'publication'.
I am publishing it now (19th August 2002) because if I don't, I'll just wait and wait until the next bit is finished and never go public ! There is still a lot to be done, many pieces are not written up, much of the detail is sketchy and there are lots of pieces yet to be started. So, keep calling back. I shan't add stuff daily, but hopefully, as the weeks roll by, there'll be something new to appeal. [Click Extra! above for latest additions page !]

Below the title is a list of selections which will move you from page to page.
There are many photographs of the books, taken from my own collection, and from those of friends. In order to quicken page loadings I have kept their file size small, but most are enlargeable by clicking. (Use 'BACK' to return to the page)

There is an overview of the books and their editions in the Introduction page in the Titles section.

Individual books are dealt with title by title, some information being minimal. Forgive me for this, but with so many books and so many editions of many of them, it will take a long time to add all the information I have, and that is not complete. I shall be adding more information and illustrations from time to time.

To pass on information, or any other comments, please feel free to mail me.

Please note that any comments, opinions etc expressed are my own, and not those necessarily held by anyone else.

Finally please note that all photographs of books are from copies in my collection (except where noted), other photographs are mine except where otherwise credited and that the copyright for the illustrations remains with the publishers/artists mentioned. Text copyright is mine. Please respect this, and reproduce none without permission from the copyright holder(s).
