The Red Cross hold an annual book fair at the racecourse rooms and I could easily spend hours and alot of money there - the books are cheap but when you have a pile it soon adds up.
These were my picks for the kids. I couldnt resist the Rainbow Brite, the pictures are so funky and Alfie gets in first was a childhood favourite of mine. The only downside was after we had spent an hour in the main room we went round to the $1 room and discovered boxes and boxes of kids books but we had run out of time! Next year we'll head there first. I better save for a bigger book shelf too coz the kids one is almost full.
I chose these three garden books for myself. They are all illustrated beautifully and I hope to use them for some inspiration for ceramic designs.
The Portrait of a Garden by Kerry Carman is especially gorgeous with detailed colour and black and white drawings.
