Denys Watkins-Pitchford (1905‒90), who wrote under the pseudonym ‘BB’, was the author of more than sixty books for adults and children, but The Little Grey Men, which won the 1942 Carnegie Medal, its sequel Down the Bright Stream (1948), and the classic adventure story Brendon Chase (1944) are his masterpieces.

BB was both a writer and an illustrator, and his charming original illustrations decorate these books. But above all he was a countryman, whose intimate and unsentimental knowledge of animals, birds and plants, as well as his gifts as a storyteller, make these books unique.
