"One hot summer in Itching Down,
Four million wasps flew into town..."
.
And so begins this utterly delightful story of a town invaded by a huge swarm of wasps, and how the townspeople come together to ingeniously mastermind the wasps' removal by trapping them inside a... humongous jam sandwich!!!
.
We love this book :-) We love it for how happy it feels to read out loud... such catchy, rhyming verse! We love it for all the silly detail to spot in the pictures. And we love the madcap way in which the plan is orchestrated - all the vastly scaled-up, eccentrically-clever stages of bread-baking and sandwich-making:
.
("...They hitched it up, with a bit of fuss,
To tractors, cars and the village bus,
And took it to the oven they had made on the hill - 
Fifty cookers in an old brick mill")
.
-  concluding, naturally, with contagious jubilation at the end for a job done so well :-)

Two of my favorite books when I was little! So happy to have found them for our little guy (especially since The Catalog is now out of print!). Jasper Tomkins came to my elementary school and read to us...we actually had a lot of amazing authors roll through the Indian Reservation! I don't think many kids experience that sort of thing these days. Now I'm looking for recommendations--tell me your favorite childhood titles!

1 x day (in theory)....just read word of master illustrator John Vernon Lord "Finding it 'difficult' to draw is perhaps just as important as being possessed of a certain  amount of natural talent for it".....clinging onto that!

Another of my childhood favourites - this time more my era. I now read it to my kids (no easy task - it's a bit of a tongue twister). Not easy to photograph either, since most of the pictures run across the spread.

"Meanwhile, high above the field, 
Six flying machines whirred and wheeled, 
Ready for the wasps to take the bait. 
And then there was nothing to do but wait." From "The Giant Jam Sandwich" by John Vernon Lord and Janet Burroway. I'd forgotten all about this one, thanks for the reminder, @readthelibrary!

The highlight of my trip to @museumartcraft was a display case of sketchbooks/diaries by the artist and illustrator John Vernon Lord. Dating back to 1960s, they were mind bogglingly detailed. Tiny tiny neat writing with intricate drawings, all in A6 books. Some pages were diary entries and others were more like a stream of consciousness. Fascinating!

Last month I encountered the beautiful diaries of illustrator John Vernon Lord and fell in love!
I've never been a diarist - I'm not disciplined enough and I'm not so comfortable with having permanent records of temporary feelings. However! Seeing these beauties made me seriously reconsider. There's something beautiful about creating art from the record of your life.

John is my ex-tutor and a friend to spend very long lunches with. He can also be wonderfully poetically rude... "A handsome new bull has been installed in the field next to us with shining ring in nose and dangling genitalia which swings to and fro in pendulous fashion as he munches upon the fresh rain soaked grass." #sketchbook #johnvernonlord #drawing

Pages from illustrator John Vernon Lord's diaries which he has been keeping since the sixties. He probably has the smallest neatest writing you will ever see and is a master of detailed cross hatching. These diaries are a lovely look into a very particular imagination & creative process. Well worth seeing if you're in Ditchling.
