The Giselle Clarkson Comic: Number 27


Today is editor Sarah's birthday, and she's going to shelter in one of her favourite books. Would you join her in Carrie Hepple's Garden? Or perhaps up the cherry tree? Or if you are missing your friends, perhaps you'd join her in Busytown.

sheltering places
picture books make good shelter
the books that comfort me tmost are about the sense of place

Mr Rabbit and the Lovely Present

The Black Pebble
Carrie Hepple's Garden
But you might take refuge in Busytown

or with a friend in Paris

or a lighthouse (includes meal service)

you cold be in the cherry tree

or maybe you go underground with the bogeyman
