Tessa Krailing was a warm and generous lady who helped many children's writers (including me) start their careers. As well as the books Michael mentioned, she also wrote the Petsitter series for Scholastic and many novels including her first book, A Dinosaur called Minerva. Her greatest success was the creation of the Wellington Square scheme for children who are finding reading difficult. It has helped many young people discover the joy of books and she always loved receiving letters from them. Tessa's sense of humour showed in her writing and carried her through a long and painful illness. Her laughter, her company and her support will be missed by many people.
