When the announcement about America came, it was Jane who didn't want to go. Rachel would have to miss her first professional dancing part, and Tim wouldn't be able to have lessons from a famous pianist, but it was even worse for Jane, who would have to leave her dog behind.

About the Author:

Noel Streatfeild was born in Sussex in 1895. She worked as an actress for ten years in England, South Africa and Australia before concentrating on writing. Her first (adult) book was published in 1931 and by the '50s she was well established as a children's writer. She was a winner of the Carnegie Medal and died in 1986.


'Noel Streatfeild's position in the children's book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and real understanding of the surfaces of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort.' TLS
