We visited the local book shop today as Hitty Joyful and I in our roles of Miss Happiness & Miss Flower wanted to see if we could find the books that Nona borrowed in the story.
The book shop has only just opened and we were not disappointed with the selection.
Hitty Joyful was delighted to see so many books and could see many that would prove useful for all our interests.
But we needed to focus so I directed her eye to the shelf with the Japanese books.
I was sure we would find something on here.
I was right. I pull out a book to show Hitty Joyful.
She is delighted as this is one of the books listed.
Ooh this is perfect! She exclaims.
We select three more books and have a sit down to look through them.
Just what we were hoping for.
Hitty Joyful wants to show me another book that she thinks will be perfect for Hitty Madge and her new artistic interests.
She is sure this one will help Hitty Madge set up an art exhibition for their other Hitty friends.
The take the books home and give 'The Art Studio' to Hitty Madge
She is simply delighted and thinks it is just the thing she needs and thanks us for our thoughtfulness.
We sit down in our little Japanese garden with a special tea reading our selection of books.
