One sunny morning Pookie woke up in Belinda's work-basket. A Pookie book by Ivy Wallace

and though, "this is just the sort of morning to fly to the end of the wood and back," and very quietly, so as not to wake Belinda (she was the woodcutter's daughter, and one winter night she had saved Pookie's life and he had lived with her ever sine), Pookie dressed, packed a small bundle of Something-to-Eat, and let himself out of the cottage and flew up into the sky.

I was just cataloging this (Pookie and the gypsies) and wondered how many of you remember Pookie the little white rabbit with soft, floppity ears, big blue eyes and the most loveable smile in the world?

Ivy Wallace became a publishing phenomenon in the 1950s and 1960s with this series of books chronicling the adventures of Pookie.

A keen amateur artist, Ivy Wallace created Pookie during the Second World War. The books, beautifully illustrated by their author became a worldwide success with the stories being translated into several languages.

This book is now sold, thank you for your interest.


  1. I'm ashamed to say I've never actually read a Pookie. The illustrations are lovely!
