Journal Entry 1 by wingdaffodil-2wing from Norwich, Norfolk United Kingdom on Monday, July 31, 2023
This small hardback, illustrated by Quentin Blake, was taken from Woodbastick phone box library.
I shall first read it myself then reserve it for my friend Plum-Crazy.
(I'm sure I've previously heard this, or something very similar being read out on the radio).

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Thank you for this & all the other books daff - I will try read it this December as it will fit more than one of the days on the "What to Read" Advent Calendar ;o)

Journal Entry 4 by wingPlum-crazywing at Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Thursday, December 14, 2023
A charming & amusing take on the traditional carol. Written in the form of thank-you letters from a young lady to her unseen admirer & illustrated with the delightful drawings of Quintin Blake.

I particularly smiled at the nine ladies dancing being portrayed as a regiment of shameless hussies with nothing..... well I'll say no more ;o)

A little gem.
