Originally written by Barbara Newhall Follett in 1927, when she was only twelve years old, The House Without Windows is an enchanting fable about the rhapsodic beauty of the natural world, and one of our very favourite books of the year. A magical story of self-discovery and the lure of the great outdoors, Follett's masterpiece follows the free-spirited Eepersip in her quest to break away from the confinement of her family home and immerse herself in the wonders of nature.
A rare treat for young and old alike, The House Without Windows has now been republished in a stunning new edition illustrated by the award-winning artist behind The Lost Words, Jackie Morris. Redolent of classics such as The Secret Garden and The Little Prince, whilst casting its own, very singular spell over its readers, this ravishing tale carries haunting echoes of the author’s own enigmatic life, and mysterious disappearance in 1939 at the age of just 25.
