Discover More About Agatha Christie Where did her creativity come from? She absorbed the children’s stories of the time - Edith Nesbit (The Story of the Treasure Seekers, The Railway Children) and Louisa M Alcott (Little Women) but also poetry and startling thrillers from America. Agatha invented imaginary friends, played with her animals, attended dance classes and began writing poems when she was still a child. When she was five, the family spent some time in France having rented out the family home of Ashfield to economise, and it was here with her “governess” Marie, that Agatha learnt her idiomatic but erratically spelt French. At the age of eleven there was a shock. Her father, not well since the advent of financial difficulties, died after a series of heart attacks.

THE HOSPITAL PLAN (Hansard, 14 February 1962) § LORD TAYLOR My Lords, I should like to begin by adding my word of congratulation to the noble Lord, Lord Brain, on his maiden speech. I was brought up on two rather tough text books, called The Diseases of the Nervous System, and Recent Advances in Neurology by W. Russell Brain, and I cannot honestly recommend them to your Lordships as light reading. On the other hand, I can recommend to your Lordships a book called Tea with Walter de la Mare, which Lord Brain wrote some years ago, and which is one of the most delightful books I have read, in the real tradition of Sir Thomas Browne and the other medical scholars. We are now really very strong in your Lordships' Houes on the medical side, but we are considerably stronger after yesterday, and we are delighted that Lord Brain should have joined us.

Home So you get to school, you find your classroom and have a seat at your desk. If you happen to live in a well-developed country, you wouldn’t think about this twice. But if you happen to grow up in the Democratic Republic of Congo, it's a different story…. Most school buildings have leaking roofs and more often then not, the walls are about to collapse. There are no restrooms and the schoolyard is far from being safe. The children have to sit on the floor and they lack a blackboard and teaching materials.
