Its a gentle tale of a boyhood spent haring around outside, building huts, eating girdle scones, catching eels, watching the train, eating roast mutton, going to school on a horse, arguing with your best mate, eating Marmite sandwiches, Guy Fawkes Day – and lots more eating.Its an elegantly written story but its the illustrations that are the real star of this book. Using two different techniques, Gavin has created both colour and black and white illustrations that bring the story to life and give a great sense of nostalgia.
