Of Dogs and Babysitting
Dodie Smith is probably best known for this novel, but she wrote two other novels, and one is a favorite of mine ... I Capture the Castle. It has one of the best opening lines of any novel, contains lots and lots of literature and art references, and its ending is quite perfect. I look forward to the day when my grandchildren are old enough to read it.
This postcard is part of a large collection of Puffin Book children's book covers, and I picked out nine favorites to added to Orphaned Postcard Project. This is the second of the nine to be featured on the blog. The first, The Snowman, appeared this winter, and there are four more scheduled for the summer months. Two are still traveling, and one, The Improbable Cat, is still available for adoption.
