Who doesn't remember packing a picnic hamper into the boot of the family car only to have the car break down? It happened all the time when I was a little girl. Dad would attack the engine with a spanner and a greasy rag, and sometimes that would be enough to get us on our way. If not, it was a call to the AA (Automobile Association) and a wait for the patrolman to turn up on his motorbike, just as he does in one of these sweet little books.
The books featured in this post are all sold, thank you for your interest.

Thank you for accompanying me on my travels! If you would like to know more about any of the books, please click on the links above each one.
When I started this post, I assumed the four books above made up a complete set but by a strange coincidence, I was offered another set of five books. There can’t be very many of these around so it seems like the best kind of luck to have two sets plus an extra! Now two lucky customers can own a little piece of travel history.
