9781406314052: Elsie Piddock Skips in Her Sleep

First published in 1937, this is the classic story of Little Elsie Piddock who can skip like never so. The High Skip, the Slow Skip, the Long Skip, the Skip against Trouble...Elsie Piddock learns them all. Soon she can even outskip the fairies on Mount Caburn and is rewarded with a gift of rare and lasting value - a magical skipping rope - that many years later, helps her to thwart an unpleasant landowner threatening to deny access to the hallowed skipping ground. This edition of the uplifting fairy story is the only illustrated version available, the Eleanor Farjeon Estate deeming Charlotte Voake the only illustrator who could do the story justice.
