That's fab, I love the old books too.

Did you see the Duchess of Cornwall chose 'Moorland Mousie' for her favourite childhood book? It's a lovely book with illustrations by Lionel Edwards and in my copy someone has saved a piece from 'Country Life' in 1932 with pictures of the original real life pony who inspired the stories. Does anyone else have it? I posted a picture on our Westgate labs facebook page.

The Moorland Mousie trust are doing a reprint now and you can buy it from their shop.
