The poem on our front cover is taken from Figgie Hobbin by Charles Causley, with illustrations by Gerald Rose, re-issued by Macmillan (0 333 12078 7, £7.50) in May 1990. Figgie Hobbin was first published in 1970 and has remained in print ever since. We are grateful to Macmillan for help in using this illustration.
The stories have a life of their own and this attractive edition might well find new readers. Although the prose is a little too plain for me at times and lacks the sense of the storyteller when read aloud, this version is direct and kept easily to short sections. It should be ideal for shared reading and will allow readers to work their way easily through the grand events of the sequence.
