I just couldn't resist joining in with the 3rd & Bird-inspired posts we had over the weekend from Claire and Hermione, so here I am armed with 3rd & Bird-ish illustrations from a 1961 book I discovered in a charity shop:
Here's 3rd & Bird's Rudy, Mrs Billingsley, Muffin and Mr.Beakman [and yes, I did know their names without checking!]:
To feast your eyes or more pages from this beautiful book flutter your feathers over to my blog where there's a whole book full awaiting you.
Oh and ... before I forget ... you're invited to a party this weekend .....
