When I was nine I was given a copy of Elleston Trevor's 'The Island of the Pines' for Christmas -- a wonderful book that I read at one sitting after lunch on Christmas Day. (Along with AR's books this is one all my all-time favourites, reread every couple of years.) The book has literally dozens of b&w full-page and in-text illustrations, and I made it my early mission in life to colour them all in with my 'Lakeland' pencils. (That's the AR connection.)

Looking at them 60+ years later, I can't pretend they're beautifully done. But I don't think they're too bad, and I know I had an awful lot of fun doing them....
