Emma in Winter

£14.99

Product description

Published by Chatto and Windus (1974). Children's fantasy story. Illustrated by Laszlo Acs.

Now that Charlotte has gone off to boarding school, Emma Makepeace is left alone and mostly friendless in her small town. Added to that, she’s begun having strange, frightening dreams of flying that involve Bobby Fumpkins, a fat, unpopular boy from school. Then she finds out that he’s having the same dreams, and they must learn what the dreams want with them, and how to escape from their power.

British children's author Penelope Farmer was born in 1939, in Westerham, Kent, the daughter of Hugh Robert MacDonald and Penelope Boothby Farmer. She published her first book, The China People, in 1960, going on to use one of the longer stories originally intended for that collection as the basis of her first novel, The Summer Birds, which received a Carnegie commendation.

CONDITION: Used, good. Boards are slightly faded but otherwise good. Text is clean with some brown speckles on the page edges and top edge. This speckling is also on the dust jacket which is price-clipped but otherwise very good. (See photos)
