Nina Bawden is foremost among twentieth-century writers of fiction for children. A reviewer in Publishers Weekly wrote: "I'll come right out and say it. For my money, Miss Bawden can so no wrong. Her stories area a perfect blend of humor and suspense, and that's a blend difficult to achieve."

She and her husband, Austin Kark, live in London, except in the spring and summer, when they go to their home in Nauplion, Greece.
