Fish supper
Kathleen Hale
Orlando dines out from the 1941 Puffin Picture Book, Orlando’s Home Life. It sold out so fast that Hale wrote to Carrington complaining that she couldn’t find copies to sent to friends. Bookshops had to be rationed by Penguin, so great was the demand for inexpensive quality books in colour for wartime children.
