Toby Twirl Tales

Toby Twirl is a cartoon character created by children's author Sheila Hodgetts for her publisher by Sampson Low, Marston & Co Ltd during the 1940s and 1950s. All of the stories are illustrated by Edward Jeffrey.

Toby Twirl Tales Toby Twirl is a young pig who walks upright. He has human hands and feet like Rupert Bear. The character is based upon a soft toy which was made by the wife of Edward Jeffrey. Toby's friends are Eli (an elephant) and Pete (a penguin), both of whom generally accompany him on his adventures. Most of the stories are written in rhyming couplets. Several of the stories take place in Dillyland, a country of small humans that Toby and friends manage to reach using a miniature railway line with an engine called The Dillypuff crewed by Clem and Joe. There is also a boat called The Dillypaddle.

As you'd expect from such stories Toby and friends often accidentally get into trouble or happen upon some villains during their adventures, somehow managing to overcome their difficulties and save the day.

A series of 8 Toby Twirl Tales, each with two stories, were published between 1950 and 1954. cj-books-etc are pleased to have a selection of these Tales for sale along with a catalogue of all the Toby Twirl Books.

Nomad books by Norman Ellison (Nomad of the BBC)

NomadWandering Wandering with Nomad

Norman Ellison is known by countless listeners to the BBC Northern Children's Hour in the 1940's as 'Norman the Naturalist' and his fortnightly walk into the countryside with his schoolboy nephew Dick, became one of the highlights of that broadcasting era.

In this story Dick is spending his holidays at Nomad's home - an old smugglers cottage on the cliff top and what a holiday it proved to be! Whether they were going down an old quarry face on a rope, warding off an attack of a wild cat or hunting for pearls amongst the mussel beds, Nomad holds his reader's attention by the same charm and fascination he displays when he did his broadcasts.

Whether you can remember his radio shows or not, this book is equally charming and informative. An echo of a bygone age.

Fully illustrated by the eminent black and white artist C. F. Tunnicliffe.

NomadOverHills Over the Hills with Nomad

Once again Nomad enthralls the reader with a fascinating glimpse into the wild life along the rugged bird haunted coast where he lives. Nomad and Dick his young nephew, experience many unusual and exciting adventures; they visit a gullery near the remains of an old Roman fort; go trawling to discover some of the wonderful wild life of the sea; and are rescued by lighthouse keepers from a treacherous whirlpool. The story is written with the imitable charm of manner and personality which is so much a part of Nomad's books.

With numerous illustrations by C. F. Tunnicliffe, the eminent nature artist.
