Flip Flops Secret
I picked up this book in a second hand book shop, I knew I had a rare find. Written by Molly Brett.
Born 1902 Died 1990.
She grew up in Surrey UK.
Her distinctive and innocent Style has enchanted children for a generation, with her beautiful drawn details. illustration and colour and captivating magical atmosphere.
Giving her little animals a human face.
Now the other animals often
laughed at that funny little frog,
because he was so slippery and had no soft fur coat,
He has no ears giggled the rabbits.
He can't sing songs twittered the birds,
He hasn't even a tail chuckled the Squirrel and
not a single whisker tittered the mice.
This is just a wee taste of her talent and to her memory
One of my passions is to collect the inscriptions usually written on the first page, a well wish? a small endearment from the past? a small rhyming verse and many more,
unfortunately no words were left in this book, leaving it naked to the world, so sad, just a collection of pages, without that special feeling.
Well I will of course, place my message and date on the first page, when I send this book to my grand-sons Rupert and Monty.
So "Night Night sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite and if they do just remember your grand-dad loves you".
