Angela Bull was provided with free access to all of Noel Streatfeild's papers, diaries and letters and she had full co-operation from Miss Streatfeild's family and friends, which has enabled her to produce this well-researched and interesting account which is written with both objectivity and with evident affection. The author shows how Noel Streatfeild's life experiences were used to good effect to inform her writing, including Noel's years on the stage; her time spent working as a model to make additional money; her work as an ARP Warden and for the WVS during the Blitz in World War Two; her travels abroad; her visits to schools and her work for the Puffin Club; and her firm belief in the importance of improving the quality of children's literature and in writing books that opened "different worlds" for children. Overall, I found this an enjoyable, accessible and informative read and one that has made me interested in perhaps looking out for titles of some of Noel Streatfeild's novels for adults.
