Bookworm #2: Billy was blowing his trumpet

My Mum, true to her hoarding nature, has pretty much never gotten rid of any of our old children’s books. Every now and then, I have a rummage through them to pick out a couple that I think my boys would like. I was strangely excited when I came across this as it brought back so many memories, largely down to Helen Oxenbury’s brilliant illustrations.

Bookworm #1: Jam and jelly and bread

I start my journey at the magnificent Quangle Wangle’s Hat. In case you’ve never read it, it features the lonely Quangle Wangle, who sits on top of the Crumpety tree, wearing an enormous beaver hat. He isn’t lonely for long though, as he is joined by many strange creatures who come to build their homes in his hat.
