About the Author

Ursula Moray Williams was born on 19 April 1911 at Petersfield, Hampshire, ten minutes after her twin sister, Barbara. She wrote and illustrated over sixty books for children with the most notable being Gobbolino the Witch's Cat and The Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse. As well as writing, she became involved in local life around the village of Beckford, where she and her family lived, organizing children's parties, and serving as a magistrate. After her husband's death in 1974, Ursula Moray Williams remained active, writing, gardening, giving talks and visiting her family in various parts of the world. She died in October 2006. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

...if so, then this one's for you.
This story is a beautiful children's piece, which can inspire nostalgia in even the most hardened adults (like me!). It's a tale of eco-friendly rare-beast saving, with the creatures in question being even more cutely alarming than the slugs five-year-olds tend to bring in from the garden.

i loved this book as a child and decided to treat my seven year old son to it as a birthday "stocking filler". It is easy to read and has lovely characters in that you will remember fondly. Another bargain from Amazon

Format: Paperback
This gripping adventure manages to tackle difficult topics with aplomb. An unloved 10 year old girl finds acceptance and family via rescuing a 'bogwoppit' - creatures that when untamed are quite unpleasant. Perhaps it's the unsentimental approach, and the depiction of the resilience of such children but the story manages to stay on the right side of believable - and has a happy ending.

I loved book when I was little and was worried it wouldn't live up to my memory of it. But it does. It's a compelling and fast paced story, peopled by great characters like heroic children battling unpleasant aunts and of course the mischevious, mercurial, muddy but adorable bogwoppits (I still wish I could have one!). Why this one hasn't become one of the classics is a mystery

I used to read Bogwoppit to my daughter when she was a little girl and it was a great favourite with both of us. We even nicknamed our dog after Bogwoppit! We still talk about it some 35 years later, in fact, I am going to buy a copy of it for her 40th birthday later this month!
