I know what you’re thinking…


Nancy Finds Herself.

By Olive C. Dougan,

London: Blackie & Son (n.d., looks very 1950s)

Illustrated by E. Spring-Smith.

And I do know what you’re thinking: how could I resist this title? And quite so, but there are further rewards to be had from a glance at the frontispiece:


“How very exciting Louie was!”

So who’s the more confused? Nancy? Or me? Or you?

(Turns out, it’s the very exciting Louie who’s confused, which is terribly disappointing.)

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.
