Jeanne-Marie at the Fair

29 Oct

“In her dreams she is brave…” Françoise, Brockhampton Press Ltd, 1961.

This book is lovely. Full of sweet illustrations, sunny optimism and the simple, devoted relationship between a girl and her pet sheep.

Jeanne-Marie, role model for children (and adults) everywhere, independent,  adventurous, thoughtful, and loving.

I want a gingerbread pig too with my name in pink sugar. I suppose I could make it myself. Would probably eat it before I iced it.

    This book is one that may help explain why you set off for England when you were about 19 or 20 full of hope and making a difference. Did you read this book back then or is it one that resonates with you and have come to it as an adult?
