Memorandum of agreement, 19/11/82.

Story written for Mara Bergman at Walker Books, which is rejected. Other feedback from publishers, on the submission of TRY COUNTING SHEEP, comes from Ingrid Selberg at Heinemann. A contract is drawn up with Heinemann and the book is submitted under a new collection title FRIENDS AND BROTHERS. (See also letter in general correspondence describing DKS’ grandchildren in this story, letter dated 25/8/86).

One of the stories in the collection is called SNAPDRAGON.

Heinemann ask DKS if he’d like to do an anthology of animal stories.

Little, Brown and Co (US) seek rights in FRIENDS AND BROTHERS, as does Morehouse-Barlow.

Other titles referred to in this file: THE HODGEHEG.
