One comment

  1. It is pleasing to know that three of Rosemary’s books made it into “1001 Children’s Books” . In particular “Warrior Scarlet” which is tremendously exciting and a fine example of triumph over disability. She was served well by her illustrator, Charles Keeping, who enhanced the mood of the story.
    It is to be hoped that the forthcoming film will bring renewed interest in all of her books which have been unexcelled in their field.
