The illustration on our cover is taken from Stories for Children by Oscar Wilde, illustrated by P J Lynch, 0 7500 0302 2, £10.00 (see Fairy Tale Favourites). The book is published by Simon & Schuster and we're grateful to them for help in using this illustration.
A wicked and, I suspect, perceptive look at what really goes on in the minds and off-duty moments of the children we take on residential visits. Having many times twittered lyrically about the delights of Roman remains and inspirational architecture, I now wonder what the private thoughts were behind the wide, brown eyes and dutifully scratching pencils. James and his friends are real in their irrepressible youth and vulnerabilities. For older readers this is a must; well-written enough to keep 'us' happy and with romance and rebellion enough to satisfy 'them'.
