"The Bog Baby is a really lovely story that is…"
The Bog Baby is a really lovely story that is quite traditional in its sentiment and subject matter. The illustrations by Gwen Millward are really lovely and pretty (hence I think this story is a great one for girls and younger boys - my older son is going off it a bit now he's nearing five) and I particularly love the detail in the bluebell covered woods.
"A lovely story about two little girls who go fishing…"
A lovely story about two little girls who go fishing one day and catch a Bog Baby. They take him home and keep him in a bucket and feed him cake crumbs and take him for a walk on a lead, but no matter how much they love him the Bog Baby is sad because he is not meant to live in a bucket and eat cake crumbs. Reluctantly the sisters go back to the pond to let him go and the Bog Baby is happy again.
