Quite scarce. Marion Catherine "Kitty" Barne (1883 ,February 3, 1961 was a British screenwriter and writer of children's books, especially on music and musical themes.She was born and brought up in Sussex and later studied at the Royal College of Music. She married Eric Streatfeild in 1912, becoming the cousin-in-law of another popular children's writer Noel Streatfeild.Eric Streatfeild was the first cousin of Noel Streatfeild's father.Barne was a member of the Women's Voluntary Service, responsible for the reception of children evacuees to Sussex. During the war years, she published six novels, most notably Visitors from London about evacuees, for which she won the Carnegie Medal in 1940.She is best known now for her books Rosina Copper and its sequel Rosina and Son, about the true story of an Argentine polo pony mare that was rescued from neglect after being ordered to be killed.They were illustrated by Alfons Purtscher and Marcia Lane Foster respectively.Apart from her novels, she wrote some non-fiction books, including a biography of Elizabeth Fry (who was her husband's great grandmother) in 1950, a book about the orchestra and a history of the Girl Guides. She was the Girl Guides "Commissioner for Music and Drama" for some years.Ruth Gervis, the illustrator of a number of her books, said of her: "To an illustrator, Kitty Barne was a most delightful author, not because she gave one a free hand, far from it, but because she knew exactly what she wanted and was so delighted when one caught her visual images. It was a true collaboration of author and artist. We would meet and then, her good ear towards me, her eyes shining, her face alive with interest, she would discuss her characters. I used to make dozens of quick sketches until I got them as she pictured them, helped by her interjections, `Oh, rather a higher forehead and even deeper set eyes` or 'oh, no you've made her far too nice, I think she is a horrid little girl.' We would laugh together over her amusing adults as she suggested incidents for me to sketch which would bring out their characteristics". Chosen for Children, 1977.She died on February 3, 1961 after a long illness. Nº de ref. de la librería 50662
