Never fails to amaze me the serendipidty that exists in the book world. A few weeks ago I read Knight Crusader by Ronald Welch, one of my favourite children's books and reviewed here. I expressed the wish that some more would be reprinted and lo and behold up comes Slightly Foxed with its plan to reprint the entire series of books by this author on the Carey family. And what is more, they will have the original illustrations as well.
There is a special edition of these titles and having looked at the website (do check it out) I am pretty certain I will be ordering them all as they are published. These are books which were written for younger readers but they can be read by adults as well. The characterisation and the historical background are simply excellent and I cannot tell you how delighted I am that there are lots more to come.
Get your order in now!
