Onto more book purchase confessions. These books have all arrived in the last week or so. I was browsing through Juxtabook's blog the other day and was reminded about the author Verily Anderson by this post here which links to a biographical article about her. I decided that I was in the mood to reread her Brownie books and ordered a host of 1p copies from Amazon (ok, I know it's £2.81 by the time you factor in the postage but never mind). I am really looking forward to reading them, they are the perfect follow up to school stories for a wet and miserable May.
I am SURE that I read more books from this genre when I was a child. I was only ever a brownie for about a year as our local pack wasn't terribly exciting, but like boarding school I was always fascinated by the idea. I've had a google but I can't think of any more titles or even find some sort of fan page. Can anyone help me out here?
