I thought that CJ had blogged about this some time ago but it appears to have been a passing reference in a post on books of childhood. Anyway when achieving something members of our family invariably say “ ‘I did it, I jumped the fence!’ cried Trotty”. This was from a book entitled Farm Babies. I for one loved the Trotty story and the one about the duckling but most of all I loved the illustrations. I still do!
Even the inside covers were brilliantly illustrated.
