Elizabeth Goudge - Author

About the Author

Elizabeth Goudge (1900-1984) was an English author of novels, short stories and children's books. Daughter to an eminent theologian, she spent her childhood in Wells, Ely and Oxford. With over 40 publications to her name, Elizabeth's most successful works are Green Dolphin Street, for which she was awarded the Literary Guild Award in 1944, and The Little White Horse which won the Carnegie Medal in 1946. The Little White Horse later became a children's BBC series, 'Moonacre', and later a family feature film, 'The Secret of Moonacre' (2009). Green Dolphin Street was also made into a film which won the Academy Award for Special Effects in 1948. Elizabeth spent her last years in her cottage on Peppard Common, just outside Henley-on-Thames, with her companion, Jessie, and their beloved dogs. Her autobiography, The Joy of the Snow, was published in 1974.
