When the nascent pop culture met the Pullein-Thompsons

Adam Faith as February Callendar might have imagined him


  1. really is a great site, especially the recent posts.

    She (Linda) seems to be a really big Little Women fan.

    I do like the pun with February Callendar, and all the great illustrations, though I never read the book as it is completely new to me.

  2. The John Verney cycle is something quite special, especially the first two books, which are the finest (and quite possibly the only) examples of quasi-Chestertonian post-Suez semi-bohemian shire adventures. Unlike many of their contemporaries, they withstand a 2009 reread.
