Dear Read­ers . . .

The People's Friend Special - - CONTENTS -

Our 15-month di­ary and pen set, which is in­cluded with this is­sue, is al­ways ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated, and I’m sure you’ll love the “Gar­den Birds Of Bri­tain” theme we’ve cho­sen spe­cially for you.

Our mini-mag this time is an eight-page mur­der mys­tery by A.J. Red­cliffe. “The Moon Street Mur­der” is a grip­ping court­room drama full of twists and turns – it will have you hooked to the last page!

We also have 14 orig­i­nal short sto­ries by favourite au­thors such as An­nie Harris, Mary Ket­tlewell and Ali­son Carter. “Cel­lar Song­bird” by Ly­dia Jones beau­ti­fully evokes the at­mos­phere of the 1960s, and we take to the skies in Mag­gie Cob­bett’s “Up, Up And Away”, which is set in York­shire.

Our travel writ­ers have been out and about, ad­mir­ing the Lake­land land­scape in au­tumn, vis­it­ing Devon’s Fair­ground Her­itage Cen­tre, cruis­ing along the Cale­do­nian Canal, and en­joy­ing a day out in the Fife town of Mark­inch. Fur­ther afield, Solange Hando falls un­der the spell of South Amer­ica, and Alexan­dra Pratt goes dol­phin-watch­ing in New Zealand.

We’ve puzzles to test your wits, too, plus clever veg­etable recipes to try and a cute draught ex­cluder to make.

An­gela Gilchrist, Editor.
