It sounds wonderful. Thank you!

You're welcome, Nan, and yes, it sounds very promising.

Had an interesting view of Nesbit's writing for children when I re-read many of the books I had known to my son. We both liked The Railway Children (who wouldn't) and The Phoenix & the Carpet (set in a part of London near where we live I noted). However we couldn't stand Five Children and It for more than a couple of stories. I have never read the other ones mentioned in your post.

Interesting!

Ooh, that looks good. I am much taken with books for adults by those who are usually children's writers. There is something about the clarity and precision of the prose of good children's writers that translates into something as you say, magical when they write for adults. Saplings by Noel Streatfeild is one of my favourite books for example.
