Read 2020 - 21 - The House Without Windows by Barbara Newhall Follett

How stunning is this cover?

This is a beautifully illustrated hardback. An absolute gem of a book. Despite almost a century between them, this is a collaboration between it's 12-year-old author (I know!) and the artist, Jackie Morris. The House Without Windows is the story of Eepersip, a child who runs away from home to enjoy nature, travelling from field to sea to mountain.

I picked the book up at an independent book store in Llangollen at the start of a week-long Welsh holiday without knowing the full story of the author. My Bestwick knew, because my Bestwick knows everything. Seriously, I declare a national holiday if I know something he doesn't.

If you want to read more about Barbara Newhall Follet, you can check her information out at Wikipedia.  

Side note: the book cover co-ordinated with the cushions at our overnight stay at the old workhouse in Bala. I'm sure you care deeply about that.
