The second of four children of barrister parents, Joan Robinson spent her early childhood in Hampstead Garden Suburb. She went to seven schools, but passed no exams. Having always wanted to be an illustrator, she began with fourteen books for small children, and later moved on to older children's fiction. She is internationally renowned for her TEDDY ROBINSON books.
"Beautifully planned, hauntingly written, these chapters hold a
thrilling intensity... The most striking novel in its genre since
Tom's Midnight Garden"
Times Literary Supplement
"Extraordinarily potent fantasy... the climax is both thrilling
and intensely moving."
