    Oh I’m going to have to check this out! My dad read me a number of swallows and amazons stories as bedtime reading.
    Very nostalgia! Wow!

    I read one or then recently to my daughter, and noted as you did that they’re pretty awesome on gender for their time, and… probably par for the course on race for something written by a white English author in the 30s – no POC as characters, and the way POC are talked about is probably quite realistic. Hearing kids talk like that now would result in some intervention…Report
