Henry R Fea wrote several children’s books, generally about animals. His Maggie’s Caravan didn’t impress Kirkus when it came out. The review described the book as “a plodding story up the Saccharine Trail”, far preferring his earlier book, The Wild One, which they described as a solid adventure story. Alas I’ve not been able to find any biographical information about Henry R Fea to date.
Finding the book:easy to find.
