Antonia Barber – The Amazing Mr Blunden (Puffin, 1972)

Blurb:

It was such an old house it sometimes seemed to Lucy that all the past was gathered up inside it as if in a great box; as though it had a life of its own that continued to exist just beyond the reach of her eyes and ears. And did the amazing Mr Blunden, who knew so much about them, mean to hurt or help them? Could she really help those troubled ghosts from another age?

The cover shows Laurence Naismith in the Hemisphere production of  The Amazing Mr Blunden. Produced by Barry Levinson. Written for the screen and directed by Lionel Jeffries, the film also stars Lynne Frederick, Garry Miller, Rosalyn Landor and Marc Granger. The film is released by Hemdale.

    Classic. Timeless adventure. Early fantasy influence. Diana Dors pretty rotten (nasty) character, “Wiggins!” etc. Influenced my fascination with time, appreciation of graveyards, respect for life, fondness of Mr Kipling :)
