World Book Day, Street Art and Sheep Art

03 Mar

On World Book Day, it seems right to remember Shirley Hughes who died yesterday. Her beautifully illustrated stories were an integral part of our children’s lives. The children she drew and the situations she put them in were all so real and always had kind outcomes. We still have Helpers, bought in 1975 and now kept here for LiveWires to enjoy.

Ute, a blogger friend, has also posted about street art being done in solidarity with Ukraine. Here is one she has discovered:

A local photojournalist spotted some sheep in a field in West Cornwall, painted in the colours of the Ukrainian flag.

    I’m too old to know Shirley Hughes (having no children) but she sounds lovely. Fabulous street art (and sheep!)

      Reading about her today, she sounds as warm and kind and lovely as her stories always suggested
