”Nobody expects that you should like it,” answered Onkel Anton. “Why should you? You have not much in common with your Uncle Arthur, I think. Why should one like to be with people with whom one does not share? Why should one think that one will fit there? And already look what you have done—you have begun to make your own way out—“

The Heron Ride was first published by Jonathan Cape in 1962, with a cover and illustrations by Victor Ambrus. The Children's Book Club edition has a more striking, and effective cover than their usual efforts. After this, Knight published three paperback editions. I don't know who the cover artist is for either of the pictorial editions. All I know is that it's not Victor Ambrus, because I asked him.
