To celebrate, Allen and Unwin have published a wonderful hard back deluxe edition of that very first book, which was also the first book which Leigh Hobbs wrote and illustrated.
Included are short essays by Leigh as well as his publisher explaining how Old Tom came into the world of children’s books back in 1994.
Angela Throgmorton lives alone and likes it that way. One day she finds an unusual bundle on her doorstep – Old Tom has arrived.
Her life will never be the same. And nor will yours!
