Philippa Pearce RIP

Philippa Pearce, known to millions as the author of Tom's Midnight Garden died on Thursday 21 December, aged 86. There are obituaries on the Independent website, and on the website of EDP24 a Norfolk news site.

I confess I've never yet read Tom's Midnight Garden, though I've seen bits of the TV adaptation (I will rectify that omission after Christmas). I love Pearce's A Dog So Small however, and recently re-read it for the first time since childhood.
