GIRLS' ANNUAL


Since I recently started Blogging, I've come across loads of Blogs with fascinating people and their interests. One in particular is Lark( the Blog of Allison Jones who shares my passion for vintage children's books). Allison far exceeds my humble collection, her collection of vintage Ladybird books nearly bought tears to my eyes. I do love vintage books. I love vintage Enid Blytons, I love Donna Parker and I love old annuals. This is my latest find which I thought I'd share. It's a great Collins Girls' annual. I actually used to have this when I was young. It has some super stories including The Day the Lion Got Loose which my daughter loves hearing. It's actually quite a tense story that one!
I'll post more of my favourite old books in the coming weeks.

  4. Simone, visit Allison at Lark if you haven't already! (her link is above yours). The archives are a feast for the soul. I aspire to her fab collection! I thought I had a pretty good set of books until I found her Blog. x
