Jack Arnold, part 2


Inscriptions in books

“Gosh,” said Irene again, with a comical air of dismay.”I’m nuts! I go and interrupt my own bit of composing, and rush off to do a job I’m not supposed to do till nest week.”

Irene at her forgetful best in In the Fifth Form at Malory Towers.

Enid Blyton’s Nature Lovers’ Book is a nice, big volume containing 24 ‘nature walks’ where John, Janet and Pat accompany their ‘Uncle Merry’ (really their next door neighbour whose name is Mr Meredith) on rambles where he teaches them all sorts of things about plants and animals. Then there are a dozen poems, six interesting things to do, a long detailed list of common flowers, trees and birds, some famous nature related poems including ones by Keats and Wordsworth, and finally, five short nature stories.

As well as many illustrations of the plans and animals that feature in the stories the book has 16 lovely colour plates by Noel Hopking.
