I was showing my parents around, so I didn't spend as much time browsing as I usually do, but managed to get my hands on a few interesting things...
Among them, the lovely children's book The Mousehole Cat by Nicola Bayley and Antonia Barber. It is a truly lovely book inspired by the old Cornish legend of Tom Bawcock. The illustrations are gorgeous, the text charming, in turns funny, poignant and poetic.
A pleasure to read and look at! No wonder it was a winner of the British Book Award (Illustrated Children's Book of the Year).
