The illustration on our cover this month is by GeorgeUnderwood. It is from Geoffrey Trease's latest book, Fire in the Wind, published by Pan Macmillan, to whom we are grateful for help in using this illustration. Details of the book are given in our Authorgraph.
The unabridged narration of this classic story about evacuees, Carrie and Nick, is flawless. The hyper-religious Mr Evans, timid Aunt Lou with her last chance of happiness, simple, gentle Mr Johnny and the mystery of Hepzibah all entrance the listener. The Cover to Cover titles, including Stig of the Dump, The Silver Sword and The Worst Witch Stories, are now in attractive three-cassette boxed sets at £9.99 and the longer stories like The Railway Children and The Machine Gunners in two double cassette boxes with 6 hours' listening for £13.99. Excellent value and an incomparable audio library.
