Biografia breu
Alison Uttley was the pen name of Alice Jane Taylor, born and raised in rural Derbyshire. She was educated at a local grammar school and at Manchester University, where she became only the second woman honors graduate. She did postgraduate studies at Cambridge to qualify as a teacher. In 1911, she married James Uttley, a scientist. After her husband’s suicide, she took up writing to support herself and her son under the name Alison Uttley and produced the popular work The Country Child (1931), a fictionalized account of her own childhood, illustrated by C.F. Tunnicliffe. Although she also wrote for adults, her best remembered works are her stories for children, for whom she invented the beloved characters of Little Red Fox, Little Grey Rabbit, Sam Pig, Little Brown Mouse, and Brock the Badger, among others. She was a prolific writer and published more than 100 books, including the classic A Traveller in Time (1939). She wrote about 20 volumes of memoirs as well as her autobiography, Ambush of Young Days (1951).



Twelve delightful country tales about Tim Rabbit of the kind heart and big adventures.

Childhood favourite, stil loved and red

Worried about her youngest daughter’s health, Mrs. Cameron arranges for all three of her children – Alison, Ian, and Penelope – to stay with her elderly aunt and uncle on the Derbyshire farm where she herself was raised. All of the children, and especially Penelope, soon take to the rhythms of country life. However, it isn’t as restful for Penelope as the adults hoped. Penelope finds she has the ability to slip between past and present. She spends more and more time in 16th century Thackers, the country home of Anthony Babington, whom Penelope knows is destined to be executed for his role in plotting the escape of Mary, Queen of Scots. Penelope feels herself caught between the two worlds, as tragedy draws ever closer for her 16th century friends and Penelope is powerless to change the outcome.

This book combines many elements that I love, including old houses with secret passages and time travel into the past. The time travel element reminds me very much of Daphne du Maurier’s The House on the Strand, with past and present coexisting in the same physical space for the time traveler. The descriptions of the house, its furnishings, the farm buildings, and the landscape are vivid enough that I could easily picture them in my mind. The continuity between past and present, with furniture and tools in use over many generations of the farm’s inhabitants, will resonate with family historians who either cherish physical objects passed down in their own family or who mourn their lack.
