Description

Rebecca lived in a big house in the country. At least it seemed like a big house to her, but then she was quite small." May be susceptible to aphids, capsid bugs, caterpillars, earwigs nibbling flowers, glasshouse red spider mite and slugs Diseases This is a novella about a girl who is accidentally transported to an alien world. She makes some friends - all very unique characters - and discovers that the world is suffering a reign of terror from strange, ethereal creatures called ghosts. Rebecca and her friends go on an adventure to find the one thing that can defeat these monsters.

Those feet," he went on, "are the sorest pair of throbbers in the entire history of feet. Would you like to see them?" In the garden, dig a hole at least 30cm wide x 30cm deep for each one, spacing each tuber 75cm apart. Rebecca's World was Terry Nation's first children's novel. It's in the style of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum or any number of other fantasies where a young girl travels to a far off land and becomes a hero as she tries to find her way home. Nation has written a classic (as you can tell if you ever decide to try and buy a copy of your own... phew!). The imagination, the characters and the message all combine into an effortless tale that everyone should enjoy. It is not without its faults, but as a child, the humour and the imagery were astounding. As an adult, it's not too far off the mark, either. My favourite character is still Captain K, the rather useless superhero. I'm pretty sure that will never change, now. Found it! My son is very boysey but has no objection to girl protaganists. I even read him an abridged version of Heidi. I might even try him with my huge collection of Noel Streatfield or The Little Princess.Those feet," he said, "are the most painful feet in the entire universe. Concentrated in those two extremities is a massive quantity of pure undiluted agony." He talked about his feet as though they belonged to somebody else. I think that the ultimate strength of this book is its charmingly surreal and quintessentially British sense of humor. The protagonist is clearly based on Alice from Alice in Wonderland, and her three companions are somewhat reminiscent of those who accompanied Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.

A dahlia variety that pumps out this astonishing cavalcade of colour and form. What a circus! No flower is the same and yet all of them go with all the others in a vase. Dahlia Rebecca’s World grows to a statuesque 120cm tall and has an eventual spread of 60cm. Once established, this plant will be the real talking point of your outdoor space!In this case, Rebecca is beamed to a far off planet which I think is the only time I've read that set up in an otherwise traditional fantasy. If there are others, please recommend them in the comments! Rebecca after being called horrible and all sorts of other things by the perturbed scientist sets out to find her own way home. Grow in full sun, in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil enriched with organic matter and general-purpose fertiliser. Pinch out growing tips to encourage bushy plants, and stake. Water freely in dry periods. Lift and store tubers in autumn to replant, or use as a source of cuttings, in spring. See dahlia cultivation Propagation Terry Nation is probably best known as the scriptwriter for various TV series during the 1970s, most notably Blake's 7 and Doctor Who. Prior to that, he had been involved in comedy shows both as a performer and as a writer of material for other comedians. If you don’t have anywhere to start them in pots, you can put the tubers straight into the ground when the frosts are nearly over.

I read the Big Finish audio drama of Rebecca's World, performed by Paul Darrow. I had known the book existed for some years, but had not come across it as a child for some reason and had not previously read it. She then has a feeling that someone is looking at her from the other end of the telescope in the star. She would then appear to be very tiny. I always worry that reading books I loved as a child or teenager will ruin them for me as I will start siding with the parents. Am sure if I re-read Catcher in the Rye I will just get irritated with Holden not identify with him). I thought this held up surprisingly well. It's an episodic SF adventure story written by Nation for his daughter Rebecca. Which explains why it is – a considerable rarity for 1975 – an adventure story about a girl. It's very inventive throughout, and the premise – a world in which the overly money-focused have destroyed the environment for personal gain – continues to resonate. The characters are amusing and interesting, and there are moments of both hilarity and poignancy. Darrow does a good job with this; an extra bonus for Blake's 7 fans.

Pinch out growing tips at 20cm and plant out after last frosts. Alternatively plant straight into the ground when the frosts are nearly over. DescriptionI got a copy of Paul Darrow reading the audio book of this from Big Finish because it was Terry Nation and what could be better than Paul Darrow reading a children's book? One of my all-time favourite books from childhood. Have been trying in vain to find a copy for years and finally got one via interlibrary loan. Not the same as owning it, but for a few weeks at least I get to be a kid again and hang out with Rebecca, Grisby, Kovak and Captain K. If you live in a cool area (hardiness zones 3-7) and you want to save your dahlia bulbs, or more precisely, your dahlia tubers for next spring, you may dig them up before the first frost and store them over winter before replanting them next spring. Store them in boxes, covered with moistened sand in a cool, dark, frost-free place where temperature remains between 45-50 °F (7-10°C).
