Sir Denis, the Devil and The Starry Teapot a first Joan Aiken story – part two!

JA Notebook

Joan started writing stories from the age of five, and kept all her first notebooks as you can see – this very early document was obviously treasured!

(Find part one of this story here)

As promised, the final part of one of Joan’s earliest stories… in part one Sir Denis was doomed to be tormented by the Devil for swearing and general bad behaviour until the starry teapot in the sky resumed its proper form…

  1. Gosh, what a wonderful tale, and what a wonderful sting in the tail for the Devil! I’m now haunted by the thought of what the teapot looked like in its proper form. I wonder if this is a reflection of a particularly disliked piece of china from Joan’s childhood.
