Ursula Buchan and the Oaken Heart

Sudden spate of sales for the Oaken Heart alerted us to a fascinating and appreciative article by Ursula Buchan. She discovered the book in the course of researching A Green and Pleasant Land: how England's Gardeners fought the Second World War - which sounds well worth having in its own right.

Slightly Foxed

I already knew that Slightly Foxed ran an attractive and readable quarterly magazine. Now I discover that they have a bookshop. They've taken over the Gloucester Road Bookshop and stocked it with a mix of carefully chosen old and new titles. Better still, their winter newsletter features A Ravelled Flag with three other recommended children's titles. Really rather exciting - I'm longing to visit. Meanwhile here's their website address.
