From making igloos and winter picnics to keeping rabbits and flying kites, and including guides to fishing, gardening, knitting, baking and traditional games like 'Beetle' and 'O'Grady Says', here are all the childhood pastimes that never go out of fashion. With original illustrations and a new binding by Shirley Hughes, this delightful companion will keep readers of all ages happy all year round.
