    I love the illustrations. I would love to see a close up of the Owl on the cover. Is it a woodcut & who did it?

    I’ve just looked at your website, for the first time in a long while, as I’ve bought a print that had your label on the frame, and I thought I’d see what was going on and had a look at your blog. Delighted to see that the King Penguins my mother had me send you are giving you joy – she would have been thrilled! It was a lovely surprise – it’s 5 years next week since she died so she’s been in my thoughts a lot.
