Dear Scarlett by Fleur Hitchcock

I love this book. Very much. 

The Front
'Dear Scarlett' is beautiful and warm and clever and funny. It is so, so perfect that I am going to rein back and not even really review it at all. (WHAT???)

I am going to give you only what the covers give you.  If this is the right book for you that will be enough. You may not have seen this in your bookshop, you may not have even been to a bookshop for a while. It may have been on loan when you visited the library.

So for all of you who have never yet met this book, here it is...

One more thing... this is one of those books, that, like "Binny for Short" by Hilary McKay, makes me so grateful that there are talented writers out there like Fleur Hitchcock who make these stories happen. Who clutch at wisps of ideas and form them into people you care about and conversations, and happenings that lead you on an adventure while you sit on your cosy sofa, and make you feel and think and smile. That is a very special gift. Thank you Fleur Hitchcock. And please write more soon!
