On our cover this issue we feature The Secret of NIMH, the film based on Robert C O'Brien's Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH (0 14 03.0725 7, £1.10). Puffin have re-issued this book with a new tie-in cover. We are grateful to Puffin for their help in reproducing our cover illustration in full colour.
It was with interest that I read the 'Afterword' to this book and discovered that Rose Wilder Lane preceded her mother as a known writer and indeed helped and encouraged her to write the 'Little House' series, some years after the publication of Let the Hurricane Roar. This is the tale of Molly and David leaving the family to settle in the mid-west of America. The style and mood are recognisable from the 'Little House' books as the trials of beginning married life with little money and within a very harsh environment are related. It promises the same satisfaction in reading as the Wilder books and will be welcomed by all fans of such tales of contrasting hardship and contentment.
