Forgotten book of the day – The Big Budget for Girls

I found this lovely book at a charity book sale. The Big Budget for Girls was a series of books published annually during the 1930s.  Published by Blackie, the book is full of stories for girls but it was the cover artwork that attracted me. There also some lovely illustrations inside. The stories are called Lost in the Candian Forest, The Carved Door-knocker, Fenella the Cat and so on.

    Not a forgotten book for me. This book was given new to my mother when she was young, and I have it still, along with a number of other annuals she owned. I particularly loved the story about the girl and the pony called The Slug, which the colour picture shown above belongs to.
