Catalogue Note

These charming books for children were written by Greene and illustrated by his lover Dorothy Glover, published under the pen name "Dorothy Craigie". Greene met Dorothy when he rented a room from her and her mother as a space to work and read without the distraction of his children. This was in 1939, but by the time they came to publish their first collaborative books, their affair was almost at its end.
