The every day tales of two young brothers growing up in a country vicarage seventy years ago are brilliantly captured in a series of 15 or so letters written by a grandmother to her granddaughter. Beautifully illustrated in colour by Felicity Rose Cole, a well-known Shropshire natural history artist with some black and white sketches by the author herself.
