I enjoy buying a lot of things at Op Shops, and one of my guilty pleasures is old-school kids books. I have a soft spot for the old Annuals, but I tend to fall for anything with intriguing illustrations... now there's a surprise.
So here's a beauty that I picked up for a sizzling 20c the other day. And, though I do buy a lot of our reading books second-hand, it's not for the kids... this one's just for a little bit of inspiration.
The only clue as to who has given us these lovely illustrations is in the only printed text in the book. On the back cover, printed rather inconspicuously is "Printed in the GDR for W.F.Graham (Northampton) Ltd. Series No. 890" So, I don't know the artist, but if you do, then thank them for me. I've enjoyed having the company of this little book for the past few days...
