Dear Dodie by Valerie Grove

Valerie Grove's excellent biography of Dodie Smith, DEAR DODIE,  was published in 1996 by Chatto and Windus, and is a great read for anyone interested in Dodie's fascinating life - from failed actress to the highest paid playwright in London and then on to author 101 Dalmatians which Walt Disney made into a smash hit animation.   She is an interesting and complicated woman!

Miss Grove has recently brought out a new biography about the life of Kaye Webb, who started up the Puffin Club and changed the face of children's literature, called SO MUCH TO TELL.
