THIS is one for the Brown Owls. Brownie Secrets: By a Brown Owl and her Tawny is a Girl Guide publication dating back to 1960. The first printing of the book dates back to 1942. The book is by B.M.Wilson and Y.S. Baume, and every page is written out in hand calligraphy – no typeset fonts here – and is illustrated with the cutest little elf pictures. The handbook is full of stories, poems, badges, puzzles, “things to do” and guidelines on how to be a good Brownie. I loved “How to Get Ready for a Brownie Meeting”. “When you have washed and tidied yourself and look your best, slip a pencil and notebook in our pocket and remember your Brownie penny.” Sage advice for any young, self-sufficient woman.
