Magpie Monday – ‘Five Go Off in a Caravan’
The local Oxfam Books & Music shop has a ‘rare and collectable’ section, including some childrens’ books. Last week I found a 1948 copy of Five Go Off in a Caravan by Enid Blyton, with really lovely illustrations by Eileen Soper, for £3. The story was fun too.
The caravans sound perfect, with running water and bunks and cupboards full of yummy things to eat and drink. I really enjoyed reading about their picnics and particularly loved this quote:
And remember there is plenty of ginger-beer in the locker under the second caravan.
Here are some photos.
