The Great Big Glorious Book for Girls

Rosemary Davidson, Sarah Vine

Homemade scones, pom-poms, daisy chains. . . The Great Big Glorious Book for Girls will take women back to a time when we made cup cakes with our grandmothers, when girls weren't obsessed with all things pink, when they didn't wear ‘hot to trot’ t-shirts aged eight and when a bit of sticky-backed plastic and a tissue box could be the answer to your dreams.

Perfect for mothers, grandmothers, aunts and godmothers (as well as daughters, granddaughters, nieces and goddaughters, of course), this is a book for all women who secretly, or not so secretly, loved playing French elastics, dream of making elderflower cordial and need reminding of how to play cat’s cradle.

Rosemary Davidson grew up in County Down, along with three sisters, many dogs, a pet sheep and several cows and horses. She lives in London with her daughter Florence and son Spike and edits and translates children's books.

Sarah Vine was born in Wales and raised in Italy. As a child she had a great capacity for reading comics, gossiping and trying on her mother's shoes, all of which have stood her in excellent stead. She writes for The Times and is married with two children.
