When the Diller deed and title is stolen just hours before Dimanche has to have it inspected - or lose everything - she calls on the help of her friend Wolfie. With illustrations by Emma Chichester Clark.
Henrietta Branford was born in India in 1946 but grew up in the New Forest. Her rural childhood inspired all her writing and shone through her 'Ruby Red' stories. The first of her three 'Dimanche Diller' books won the Smarties Book Prize (6-8 category) and was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Award. Henrietta lived in Southampton with her partner, the photographer Paul Carter, until her death on 23 April 1999 from breast cancer. They had three children. Emma Chichester Clark studied art at the Royal College of Art. She has worked as a freelancer for magazines, publishers and advertising agencies as well as teaching art for several years, but now dedicates most of her time to children's books. She was nominated for the Kurt Maschler Award for Illustration twice and 'I Love You, Blue Kangaroo!', was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
