Not only did it have some loooovely illustrations from kids' books that I hadn't seen before, but it had THE GRUFFALO!
First of all, let me lead you round this week's exhibits....
This is the original front page painting for Room On The Broom!
Loved this - hadn't seen the book before 'The Dinosaur's Day'
Loved these little pencil sketch snails!
We luff our Gruffalo - look at all the copies of the book we've got!
Couldn't get to see these as close as I would have liked as they were in the Librarian's area and I think they may have thought I was going to make off with all the Library Book Fine Money. Which I might, but given that most of it is generated from MY FINES, I think it would have been ok for me to do that.
And here is the star of the show.
With his terrible claws on his terrible toes and his nobbly knees and his green warty nose
Which reminds me - Tartarus is back in the bosom of his family for Christmas - a great relief all round. Especially in light of yesterday's horrendous weather. A sample of which can be seen here at Largs, just across the water from us.
How are YOU all after the storms? Or did you escape them?! Tell all!
