This cover has always been one of my favorites. It has been said to me that Jill McDonalds work has something of the stained glass window about it - and I think this is particularly true of this picture. If I can find some time away from the kids over Christmas, I will post some little bonus pictures to raise a smile.
To all of you who have contacted me this year I would like to offer my thanks for your words of support - It makes it all worthwhile.
A particular thanks must go to Ruth for sharing her collection - it's been a real treat!
Merry Puffin Christmas!
