Pigling Bland

39/52 for the group 2019 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: M is for Made Up

Here is Pigling Bland, a character made up by Beatrix Potter sitting in front of a selection of books set in made up places.

There are some of my favourite stories here: a children's version of The Arabian Nights illustrated by Pauline Baines; my Lord of the Rings set; a few Pratchetts, and a couple of Diana Wynne Jones stories. The old books on the top of the pile were given to me by my grandmother. They're George McDonald stories presented to my gran and my great aunt as school prizes.
