Margaret grew up loving books. Her creative imagination was enriched by books and she held a belief that very young children needed to experience the joy of being lost in words and images that books can give like no other medium can. Margaret had a connection with children and always wanted to teach; it was her vocation which included providing a sanctuary for children who had suffered from difficult starts in their early years.
She always said that giving time to your children was the most precious thing. She produced her books to try and help create those special times when child and parent and adults are lost to imagination.
