Earlier this week Barbara from March House Books featured a beautiful book called 'The Bluebell Story Book' as her Book of the Week post. I have a similar book by the same publisher - Blackie and Son and I decided I would put together this quick off the cuff entry as a complimentary post.
Unfortunately the cover of my book is a bit worn, but it is still possible to enjoy the lovely artwork. When I scanned it I was able to enlarge and make out the name of the artist for the first time - it appears to be Hilda McGavin. (Now I have a name I will have to try to find out something about her.)
There are a number of stories of different lengths, four colour plates and a host of lovely black and white illustrations. The colour illustrations I've included here are the two I like the most. Not all the illustrations are by the same person, but the one I've included below clearly shows the name of the cover artist.
