The four Gareth children have always led a very quiet life in London with their parents – until Dad suddenly gets ill abroad, and Mum has to go out to look after him.


The Gareth children are shipped off to Great Aunt Dymphna, who lives wild in an extraordinary half-ruin in Ireland. Here they are not only expected to look after themselves, they also discover that they have company – a mysterious boy who announces that he is on the run. The children hide him from his pursuers – but who are they? And who is the boy? The children are determined to find out…

Review:

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

“Noel Streatfeild is an author who is a true master of her craft.”
Illustrated London News

About the Author:

Noel Streatfeild, the plain middle child between two talented and pretty sisters, trained at RADA and acted for nine years before writing Ballet Shoes, an instant bestseller, in 1936. As vicarage daughter, factory girl, actress, model, social worker, writer, and crusader for good books, Noel touched many aspects of life. Her experiences enriched her stories, which were so popular that, by her eightieth birthday, she had earned herself the title of “a national monument”. She was awarded the Carnegie Medal in 1939 and died in 1986.
