Front cover

Cover of THE LITTLE STRANGER by Susan Osborne


  • For any family of children who are old enough to realise what is happening the prospect of an addition to their ranks is at the same time a thrilling and an anxious one. How the Denver children, sent from home to stay with their cousins the Blaises, got through the time of waiting for the 'Little Stranger' by producing a Christmas play is told realistically and appealingly in this story.
