Sorry Officer…


Cop Shooter.
by Kit Higson. London: OUP, 1942 (reissued 1958).
Illustrated by Dorothy Fitch.

This is one of my treasures. A charming story for young readers. Given as a prize for ‘progress’ by a Presbyterian Girls’ College.

My, how things have changed.

It is, of course, a story about a dog. A dog called Cop, who belongs to a boy called Simon Shooter. Because that makes sense, doesn’t it?


Incidentally, I like the illustrations quite un-ironically, as in the frontispiece.

It won't surprise you to learn that I'm quite keen on books, and spend as much of my spare time as possible picking over second hand book stalls and charity book sales with my surprisingly delicate claws.
