Books, books, books!
Is there anything better than losing yourself in a good book,
whether fluffy novel or scholarly tome?
This blog is for long and short reviews of books read,
essays about book series, memories of books,
quotations, and anything else with a literary bent.

Chasing the Elusive Verney

Every once in a while I still go looking for John Verney. Strange how a writer I loved so well and who was so popular just disappeared.

His obituary.

His photograph from the National Portrait Gallery.

A Telegraph article about Friday's Tunnel. (Ah, I'm not the only one who thinks his illos look like Edward Ardizzone's.)

A Christmas Card drawn by Verney.

A piece of art by Verney, "Toyland."
