But at the end of most books the beaming creature was hugged and loved by the family again. The garden, though, was rather sketchy. She felt she never looked enough at trees.
For her, cats and stability and family closeness were all one thing. She could not have a cat as a child, because she spent those years wandering. Her Jewish family escaped from Berlin in when Hitler won the election and her father, a prominent man of letters, found himself marked for death.
He left, and she, her brother and her mother followed, fleeing to Switzerland, then to Paris, and eventually to England, where she stayed. As a child she was almost unaware of why they had left. In Switzerland she dreamed she saw her father, who now had 1, marks on his head, buried under coins pouring down from a broken ceiling. But her sharpest regret was that she chose the wrong toy to take when they fled, packing a stupid new woolly dog instead of her old, soft, familiar pink rabbit with embroidered black eyes and an endearing habit of collapsing on its paws.
She imagined tearfully that Hitler must be snuggling it now. She meant to write only one book at first, to prove to her children that her childhood was much better than it sounded. They were poor and lived a lot on charity, but she found it fun to be a refugee: to belong a little in lots of places, as her father said. She thrived at strange schools and was good at languages, unlike her parents, who were gradually destroyed by exile.
She could draw and paint wherever she was, and did so whenever she could. Once in England, doing odd small jobs, she went to art evening classes and got a scholarship to the Central School of Arts and Crafts. Meanwhile she sketched everything she saw, especially people in motion or asleep. By the s she thought she could make a modest living at it, and after a break to have the children she turned to the drawing of picture books again.
Over years of cosy bedtime stories with Tacy and Matthew, she had watched their faces closely to see how they reacted. First edition ppxivi, , illus; roy. A fine copy in sl.
