It was the annual school fair on Saturday and it was perfect weather for it though as always there was a sneaky breeze there on top of the hill.
My first stop was the second hand book stall but there wasn't much there of interest.
Although we were there early I think the dealers had already been through and snavelled the best as usual.
I did find this little Milly Molly Mandy book though
and although it is a recent publication, it matches the 75th Anniversary book
we gave Kate for her third birthday.
The very best part of the MMM books has got to be the map of the village.
Just wonderful don't you think.
A little world drawn for you so you know just where everything is and can imagine your own adventures.
The new little book only has black and white pictures but that's OK
because I have all the lovely colours in the big book.
Here is a lovely article about Joyce Lankester Brisley and the Milly Molly Mandy books
which were, by the way, my mum's favourite books when she was a young girl.
