About the Author:

Ursula Moray Williams was born on 19 April 1911 at Petersfield, Hampshire, ten minutes after her twin sister, Barbara. She wrote and illustrated over sixty books for children with the most notable being Gobbolino the Witch's Cat and The Adventures of the Little Wooden Horse. As well as writing, she became involved in local life around the village of Beckford, where she and her family lived, organizing children's parties, and serving as a magistrate. After her husband's death in 1974, Ursula Moray Williams remained active, writing, gardening, giving talks and visiting her family in various parts of the world. She died in October 2006.

From AudioFile:

Resourceful Samantha goes to live with reclusive Aunt Daisy in a crumbling mansion. This satisfying variation on a familiar theme is enhanced by an almost indescribable animal called a bogwoppit. Angela Thorne reads with appropriate, playful gravity, letting the humor of the story emerge unforced. She gives every character a well-defined voice. Her British diction and occasional British usage are unlikely to put off or confuse American youngsters. Happily, this audiobook has no obvious instructional value, so youngsters can just enjoy it. A nine-year-old consultant agrees. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
