On the front of BfK this month is the cover of Yesterday by Adèle Geras. The artwork is by Carolyn Piggford. This book is one from the 'Teenage Memoirs' series published by Walker (see the article, All Their Yesterdays, in this issue) and Adèle, of course, is the subject of our Authorgraph - see centre-spread. Our thanks to Walker Books for their help in using this illustration.
Noddy, his red and yellow car, his blue tinkling hat and his friend Big Ears have, rather mysteriously, retained their popularity. Here are four stories full of moral incident and cosy detail from the new Noddy editions. Noddy thinks there must be something wrong with his head as his hat keeps slipping off, but Big Ears explains it's just Noddy's swollen head caused by his high self opinion. Wendy Craig's characterisation of the Toylanders has enough imagination to add interest, yet remains comfortingly familiar to young listeners.
