Although I did not grow up with the wonderful books
of Alison Uttley, I am now reading as many as I can get
my hands. I find them so delightful and most magical.
This website is a little gem!

I loved her books as a youngster.They were so refreshing.Sam Pig was such a nice character and did such fun things such as going on a train,once he was rold it wasn't a dragon! He had some wonderful adventures.
I also lked 'Cuckoo Cherry tree' and the story of 'The Grandfather Clock'stands outEvidently She believed in life after death!
The story or 'Wee Willie Winkie' in 10 Candlelight Tales was another delightful read.
All bring back a flavour of a simpler lifewhen we managed withoutthe gadgetry of today.

I have fond memories of sitting cross legged on the grass in Greta Hall garden in Keswick, listening to Alison read to us one Sunday afternoon in around 1960. Magical.

Brought up with her books, especially Sam Pig. In adult years I have come to treasure Country Child and her other 'country' books.
Glad to have found your website. Fabulous!

I am so happy to see on this lovely web site, that The Country Child is being republished in the summer of 2016! I have an old battered copy of it, and it's my favourite book of all time. I treasure every chapter and every now and again re-read a portion as a treat. I want to choose it for the book club I am in, but can't expect members to be paying a lot of money for a copy; hence so pleased it's being republished. I have a whole collection of books by Alison Uttley, and a couple that she has signed. I treasure them all.

Skimming through Amazon UK Books just now, in search of rare work-related material, I was side-tracked by a pop-up ad. for A.U.'s "Stories for Christmas"; I have my old copy, but was enchanted by 2 or 3 readers' reviews : do read them !

It's a very long time since we posted anything but we have been busy: our great conservation stone masons and roofers have been making the finishing touches to the beautifully rebuilt kitchen chimney and have been carrying on with re-doing soakers on the roof and repointing (in lime, of course) the rear elevation. The window frame to Alison's window in her attic summer bedroom is sadly pretty rotten and I think we are looking at replacement on a like for like basis rather than repair. Exciting for me is the prospect of carpet in my bedroom, after almost 4 years of living here. More early post med pottery found and redecorating the attic bedroom. We have also made cider from the apples in the orchard! Busy, busy, busy. Louise

Hello again Sheila.

I must say I agree with the Beaconsfield teacher; it seems to me that instead of pouring forth exquisite invention, Blyton merely exploited a box of tricks to conscript the child reader into supplying the exquisite invention themself. Perhaps I am an old curmudgeon but I have found only a few really fine writers for children. Uttley obviously, and Arthur Ransome comes to mind. But Blyton, Crompton, Potter and many others I find a disappointment in the end.

You will be pleased to hear that Uttley is well alive here in Australia - I have received a deluge of emails. I thought that titled as you are "Uttley Trustee" you might like to have some of what they send me.

Scholard is a word all right, and it has always been rare.

Admin reply: All fascinating. The word could well have been considered old Derbyshire by Alison. She also uses many vernacular or out of use words in her adult essays on country life.
