The Night They Stole the Alphabet..... by 

This is another childhood memory – reading my absolute favourite childhood book – “The Night They Stole the Alphabet” by Sesyle Joslin. I used to get this book out of our school library all the time; in fact I had it so often I don’t think anyone else at my school would have had any chance to read it! I tried to get a copy recently, but it is out of print, so will have to search out a decent 2nd-hand copy I guess.

    Fantastic little piece of work. The sleepy cat is a great touch.

  • Thanks! The cat is a tribute to my childhood cat, Mr Mimms, or Mimms for short. He was such a great pet, I was going to marry him when I grew up! hahahaha! Sad but true :)! I’m over him now though……sigh

  • Thank you pinkyjain! Yes, have been meaning to get on to somewhere like Ebay, just one of those things I haven’t quite managed to get round to ;p
