A beautiful reissue of this charming and much-loved classic
'B.B.' was born as D. J. Watkins-Pitchford in 1905 in Northamptonshire. He studied at the Royal College of Art and was for many years the art master at Rugby School. He has written many books for both children and adults, all of which reflect his naturalist's knowledge and passion for the countryside. The Little Grey Men and its sequel, Down the Bright Stream, are two of his most well-known and best-loved books and in 1942 The Little Grey Men won the prestigious Carnegie Medal.
