We were so excited to buy our copy of Oddfellow's Orphanage, by our very own Miss Emily Martin last week! The girls were entranced. It's so lovely.
The artwork is interspersed between the text in soft pencil. The book itself is so pretty, the cream paper with the brown text is understated and such a special detail.
And the girls love the chracters and their stories—especially Ollie, the onion-headed boy. And Delia, of course. And the cheese sandwich eating sea monster. And baby bear.
And Sadie took it up to her bunk and read it all night with her flashlight. Bravo, Emily!
