Harry Hop-Pole by Wispy Gorman
Chef of Distinction! by Wispy Gorman
Both of these were sent to me by the publishers, acorn books, after seeing Harry Hop-Pole on my wishlist last month. Received with thanks.
I also picked up a beautiful little book in San Gimignano called The Unhappy Trees by Alessandro Togoli, giving voices to some of the figures depicted on antique urns. Its a gorgeous book and a lucky find.
Challenges - I still have not bought any new novels in accordance with #1 of this years personal challenges.
