This amazing 1925 large-format book, Gay Gambols, follows a group of animals on their jolly adventures. Thrushes playing marbles. Crows playing follow my leaders. Wild rabbits playing ”I Spy”. Hedgehogs playing head over heels.
The illustrations by A.E Kennedy are full of wit and whimsy. And that front cover with a cheeky kitten brandishing a saw…. you gotta love it. A wonderful antique book to brighten even the dullest of days.
