The illustration on our cover is taken from Think of an Eel, Karen Wallace, ill. Mike Bostock, published by Walker (0 7445 2250 1, £6.99) - see the article 'Facts...

A well-established favourite: the tale of a racing pigeon much treasured by old Mr Potter, and her battles against the forces of nature to return to her home and win the race. Reg Cartwright's air-brush technique looks as fresh now as it did over a decade ago when this book was first published, and won its illustrator the Mother Goose Award for the best newcomer to British Children's Book Illustration.
