She broadcast on the radio and once traveled across the Atlantic as guest of the National Girl Scouts of America, where she gave lectures in 1931. She received enthusiastic write ups in the American press. Her books of stories have reprinted many times, and include The Cat that Climbed the Christmas Tree and Dobbin and the Silver Shoes.
