It was my birthday yesterday and I must say Jacob gets top marks for his present!
I've been after a copy of Edward and the Horse written by Ann Rand and illustrated by your favourite and mine, Olle Eksell for ages but had really given up hope. They are almost impossible to get hold of, let alone with an original dust jacket. This is a first edition too so is extra special and it's pretty much my favourite thing in the world! I know he must have spent a fortune on it...
The illustrations are beautiful and the story is really funny. I never thought about doing children's illustration before but this book makes me think twice.
Hope you are having a splendid weekend, folks.
