The Alison Uttley Literary Property Trust and the Trustees of the Estate of the Late Margaret Mary Mears (Author) Alison Uttley (1884-1976) said of her characters, "Why do children love them? Because I believe in them." She grew up at Castle Top Farm in Derbyshire, and her passion for the countryside comes across vividly in her timeless Little Grey Rabbit stories. Margaret Tempest (Illustrator) Margaret Tempest (1892-1982) illustrated these classic tales with such vitality that the characters come to life with warmth and wit. Her partnership with Alison Uttley lasted for forty years.Review:
Now Little Grey Rabbit and his friends are back and the hundreds of thousands who enjoyed the stories in childhood will look forward to sharing them with new generations. A brilliant student and a graduate in physics from Manchester University, Alison Uttley nevertheless believed in fairies and ghosts and perhaps it was this belief which added to the charm of the stories. She was a woman whose love of the countryside and animals shone out of her books and her tales of Little Grey Rabbit, Squirrel, Hare, Moldy Warp and Fuzzypeg are described as classics of children's literature. -- Caroline Franklin * Newbury Weekly News *
