Our cover this issue was created from the endpapers of the Blue Book and the Yellow Book of Hob Stories to be published by Walker Books later this year. Hob made his first appearance last year in the Red and Green Books of Stories about him by William Mayne. Patrick Benson who did the illustrations has just won the Mother Goose Award. For more details see Ed's Page (opposite) and the report of the Mother Goose Award (page 10). We are most grateful to Walker Books for help in using these illustrations.
Hey Diddle Diddle
Not having seen the TV series I cannot see whether or not its popularity is justified; undoubtedly though, this popularity will help to promote these rather garish little nursery rhyme books. I found their bold borders made it difficult for my eyes to settle on the page but I imagine that those more familiar with the TV characters will have no such difficulty.
