Oranges and Lemons


A sweet collection of ‘singing and dancing games’: Oranges and Lemons, compiled by Karen King and illustrated by Ian Beck (Oxford University Press, 2006). The elephant and the teddybear are holding an earlier cover than my reprint.

Usman’s Books

Usman's cover

Usman loves reading his books in Usman’s Books by Julia Donaldson (Oxford University Press, 2006) … and just as we follow another of her creations, Charlie Cook, into his books, Usman wishes he could step inside a story. Spoiler: “And if you could step into this book…”, invites Usman, pointing at the cover, “you would meet me!”
