The Other Hobby, part 2

The second submission for the Bibliophiles ring was Magpie Magic, a fantastic wordless picture book, by April Wilson. As far as I know, Magpie Magic is the only children's story she has ever written, which is a tragedy. You can check it out at your library, but I would recommend that you buy it. It's a great pick-me-up book for rainy, gloomy days or just for when you need a smile.
Of course, there was a bonus stamp too. The Magpie is about 5 1/2 x 3 inches and the feather was about 1 x 3.
These stamps have also lived a very full life both as postals and as traveling event stamps. They hold some sentimental value as well for several reasons, but that is a story for another day.
