Today in Photo

A very kind reader mailed me a copy of this Soviet kids book when I mentioned I had lost my copy. When Daddy Was A Little Boy is a collection of short tales about the eponymous "daddy" and the things he gets up to, including having really bad handwriting and becoming a ping pong champion. Could not find much on the author or the book when I Googled for background, but this was right up there among my favourite kids books when I was growing up. Now sitting on my "Soviet kid lit" shelf.
