Wonderful! I had no idea he wrote other than poetry. These sound wonderful. And I love that you read a biography of him.

The Box of Delights is an absolute favourite of mine and my son, Toby, which is read every Christmas and the wonderful BBC television production is still one we love to sit and watch together - he's nearly forty now! "Scrobbled" is one of our most loved words.

‘Scrobbled’ is a great word!!

Reading The Box of Delights made me want to find out more about the man himself as I felt he 'shone’ from between the pages! The biography was a good enough overview, but it didn’t have what I’d hoped to find, e.g. anything on Masefield's creative process, how he came to write those books, etc. TBofD wasn’t mentioned at all, and TMF was simply termed “a classic” and not discussed at all!

Thanks for writing about these books! Was also not aware of Masefield except as a poet. Look forward to reading them and passing them on to my grandson!

I hope you’ll both enjoy them thoroughly, Diana!
