Elfrida Vipont - Author

About the Author

Elfrida Vipont was born in Manchester in 1902. After studying history and music, she became a professional singer, free-lance writer and lecturer. In 1926 she married a research technologist, R. P. Foulds. During the Second World War she served as headmistress of the Quaker Evacuation School at Yealand Manor. She lived for many years in the north Lancashire village of Yealand Conyers.

She is the British author of nearly two dozen children’s novels, of which the best known are The Lark in the Morn (1948) and The Lark on the Wing (1950), both about a Quaker schoolgirl, Kit Haverard, who becomes a brilliant singer. The second volume won the CARNEGIE MEDAL. Several books for adults about the Quaker movement have appeared under her married name of E.V. Foulds. In 1969 she and Raymond Briggs produced a classic Picture Book for small children, The Elephant and the Bad Baby.
