DID you spy my latest collection of old books in the last post? A 1956 copy of the ABC Children’s Hour annual – published to complement the national broadcaster’s radio serial of the same name – a book of British wildflower’s illustrated by John Nash; and, Green Mountains, the story of Bernard O’Reilly and his search for survivors of a plane crash in the hinterland northwest of Brisbane in the late 1930s. I was captivated by the Children's Hour, which contains two short stories and a photograph of a young Ruth Park, author of The Harp in the South.

Oh, and if you're keen for new reading material, I have listed Frankie magazine (edition No.12) on eBay, and The Slow Readers book club is reading Alice, I Have Been.

  1. Oooh, I'm jealous of the British wildflowers book. I'm always astonished by northern hemisphere wildflowers - so many of them are 'domesticated' flowers in our gardens.

  2. These are just beautiful! I hadn't heard of the children's hour. Love Ruth Park. I just a few weeks ago read the serpents delight and my daughter just finished playing Beatie Bow. I am very curious now as to what she looked like so will have top chase up a pick. Wonderful post Kate!:)
