Welcome to the September newsletter from Stella and Rose's Books. The aim of our newsletter is to keep you informed of new information, articles and books available on our website. We hope you enjoy it.

Earlier this year I read an article in a newspaper which listed the top ten children's books of the past 150 years. This list was based on a poll of 2,652 adults and, I assume, carried out in the UK.

Originally published in 1906, Barrie utilises many chapters of 'The Little White Bird' (published in 1902), with only a few changes in text.
