This month BfK features Jane Ray’s cover for The Twelve Dancing Princesses. We’re particularly delighted to have the opportunity to use this illustration as it enables us to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Orchard Books - they’re 10 this year! And also to thank them for their help in producing our July cover.
Roy Apps' television writing skills come to the fore here with the crazy, zany 'Aunt' from Oz. She's very visual and totally uninhibited, saying just what she thinks at full volume, everywhere. A clever exposé on how to acquire self-confidence, this has to be read for the sheer fun of it all. Do look for her wonderful taste in hats. They have to be seen to be believed.
