I have just read on Happy Birthday Author that this is the birthday of author illustrator Lindsay Ward. She was not an author I knew much about, but when I read this blog I realised the library had three of her books, so I have made a note of this here so that next year we can add her birthday to our library diary. I would like to add her title Please Bring Balloons as balloons always make for a good display in the library and it sounds like fun.
The library has When Blue Met Egg, A Garden for Pig, and The Yellow Butterfly. I particularly like the sentiments of the story about the butterfly.
