About the Author

Rosalie Kingsmill Fry (1911–1992) was born on Vancouver Island, Canada, but moved to Swansea, Wales, with her family as a child. She trained as an artist at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London and began writing stories in order to have material to accompany her illustrations. Bumblebuzz, her first book, came out in 1938. During the Second World War Fry served as a cypher officer in the Women’s Royal Naval Service, even as she continued to publish books for children. In addition to writing, she made toys, designed stationery, and contributed illustrations to various periodicals. A prolific and successful writer, Fry worked steadily until the 1970s, publishing more than thirty books over the course of her career. She lived most of her adult life in a cottage in the Welsh countryside.

As soon as I realized the movie was based on this book, I had to read it. The movie was so true to this wonderful story about a family finding their lost little boy, and returning to their island home. It’s a very sweet, lovely story. I feel as if I’ve visited their little cottages, and not only to I intend to read this again, and watch the movie again, but I need to read Ms. Fry’s other works now as well.
