Sally Kindberg’s drawings for Twiddling Your Thumbs – hand rhymes for children by Wendy Cope

twiddling-coverI illustrated Wendy Cope‘s Twiddling Your Thumbs  for Faber & Faber many years ago but had an emailed comment today from author, reading champion and academic Dr Alison Baverstock :

Sally, I have just bought five more copies of Twiddling your thumbs. It’s always been my standard gift for anyone with a new baby and I find I am now buying copies for a whole new generation!

Twiddling Your Thumbs had a German edition, renamed Dorotheas Daumen, published by Carlsen Verlag. It’s unusual for a book of rhymes to be translated I think – or so publishers always say.twiddling-snailtwiddling-bus-stoptwiddling-chomp
