Scope and Content

Small file of correspondence relating to 'Tog the Ribber'. The file includes letters from the British publisher, Andre Deutsch, and from the American publisher, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, as well as a small quantity of letters from fans of the book. Much of the correspondence from Andre Deutsch concerns the shortlisting of 'Tog the Ribber' for the first Smarties Children's Book Prize, and several of the letters are addressed to Paul Coltman, Gillian McClure's father and the writer of 'Tog the Ribber'. The file also contains a photograph of Gillian McClure and Paul Coltman, and a Library Association Kate Greenaway Medal 1985 certificate of commendation for the book.

The final letter in the file is incomplete.


Letters have been arranged by correspondent, with letters from the same correspondent arranged into chronological order. Single letters from fans appear at the end of the sequence, in chronological order.
