About the Author
Angela Brazil was born on November 30, 1868, and died on March 13, 1947. She was one of the first British writers of "modern schoolgirls' stories," which were written from the point of view of the characters and were meant more for entertainment than to teach morals. Brazil first started writing when she was 10 years old. She and her close childhood friend Leila Langdale made a magazine based on the children's magazine Little Folks, which Brazil loved at the time. There were riddles, short stories, and poems in the "publications'' of the two girls. In their magazines, both girls wrote serials. Brazil's was called "Prince Azib." Brazil wrote Little Folks later in life. She didn't start writing until later in life when she became very interested in Welsh mythology. Angela Brazil is thought to be the first author of girls' school stories who wrote from the student's point of view and whose stories were mostly meant to entertain rather than teach moral lessons.
Arthur A. Dixon was born in England in 1872. He attended an art school, and was just 25 when his first oil paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Society of British Artists. Around 1899 he began illustrating books for Ernest Nister, Raphael Tuck & Sons, Blackie & Son, the Oxford University Press, and Collins Verlag. Arthur Dixon died in 1959.
Elle Carter Neal grew up between the covers of books, emerging only when her storytelling skills were required for games with friends or to invent explanations when something went wrong. She lives in Australia where possums use the power lines as tightropes and anything printed out on paper is likely to be chased around the house by her cat, or drawn on by one or both of her children. Luckily she has a plan. And makes plenty of back-ups.

"Brazil wrote with verve and enthusiasm and I recommend her books to fans of Elinor M Brent-Dyer's Chalet School series." E.L. Dollard, Amazon review


"Angela Brazil was the Enid Blyton or Jacqueline Wilson of her day, and this was one of her best-known books. It is still worth reading." Annalivia, Amazon review


"A lovely gentle read for any girls' school story fan to while away an hour or two." Reading Girl, Amazon review
