What a find!

I just had to share my recent find, "Uncle Bumble" written in 1971. This gem was tucked away in a box at the Rylstone Anglicare shop and was sold to me for just 20 cents. The illustrations and story are by Jenny Williams and they're AMAZING! I wish I could tell you more about her but I've been unable to find any info on her. Does anyone know of her work? I would love to see some more :)





Isn't it glorious?! I just love all the colours... so inspiring!
