The notable sequel

kiddie18022017

Kiddie of the Camp.

By Robert Leighton.  Pearson, London, 1922.

This, of course, is the absolutely fabulous sequel to Kiddie the Scout.

Which is a vast relief for me, because I’ve already made all of my camp kiddie jokes.

You do have to wonder, sometimes, just how many 12 year old scouts there actually were in the Old West. To judge from the literature (written for young chaps in Leeds and Leighton Buzzard) the place was simply teaming with them.

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.
