PBOTD 30th June: Monica Edwards - The Wanderer

I promised you more Children's Book Club, and here you are: the picture below is their version of Monica Edwards' The Wanderer, with probably one of the most unlikely equine conformations you'll ever see on a book cover.

I'm glad I grew up with the far prettier Armada version of the book. The first edition, which appeared in 19  and was illustrated by Joan Wanklyn, is even lovelier.
