Free download So Much To Tell 105 Valerie Grove ç 5 Summary So Much To Tell Kaye Webb a journalist with no publishing experience burst into the world of children's books in 196. Having known very little about Webb I had this recommended to me as a good way into her life and times at Puffin Make no mistake she would have been instrumental in pulling children s literature into that second golden age with the platform she presented and expected of up and coming children s authors I was struck by the constant problems Webb had with relationships but also the absolutely ceaseless energy in which she ran and drove Puffin From publications of which she expected a very high standard to the Puffin club outings in which it reads as if many children s writers were rather hauled to rather than attending freely a particular moment in which William Mayne was dragged along to a weekend event now reads with extreme discomfort Thanks to Kaye children in the 60s and beyond had affordable access to Garner Pearce Garfield Aiken and others such as Sutcliff and yes Dahl who seemed a formidable presence in and of himself Appalling cover aside I was a little frustrated by the fact that much of the book focused on her one sided relationship with the artist Ronald Searle Although this was clearly a huge part of Kaye s own life I went into the book wanting a lot of her time at Puffin I suspect that the stories found within these pages are only the tip of the iceberg
