The illustration on our cover is taken from Stories for Children by Oscar Wilde, illustrated by P J Lynch, 0 7500 0302 2, £10.00 (see Fairy Tale Favourites). The book is published by Simon & Schuster and we're grateful to them for help in using this illustration.
When a normally quiet, self-contained child in one's class sits holding her toes and squeals 'Oh, no no no it's too much - she's not to fall!' you feel you're on to a winner. When the rest of the children join her, then you know that Quentin Blake has them hooked yet again! Mrs Armitage's inimitable personality, her amazing additions to her bicycle and the delightfully idiosyncratic twist at the end of the story must make it a new classic!
