LOVED Streatfield and read every single one I could get my hands on. I used to wish I could be Petrova...didn't everyone? : )

Julia Briggs wrote a terrific book I had to read for a class once, about Shakespeare and Elizabethan England, called This Stage-Play World; stands to reason she'd have written other interesting stuff, can't think why i never thought to check that out, so thanks!

Happy New Year!

You've made me want to reread "The Story of the Treasure Seekers" as well! The Briggs biography of E. Nesbit is marvellous. I didn't know Streatfeild had written about Nesbit though. I'd love to read that one--hopefully my library has it. I was a huge Streatfeild fan as a child. Not so much the shoe books which were favourites of many of my friends but "When the Sirens Wailed," "The Growing Summer," and "Thursday's Child." Okay, now I want to reread them too...
