Initially, I couldn’t remember being read to as a child – then I remembered the Blackberry Farm books and in particular ‘Lucy Mouse Keeps a Secret’ by Jane Pilgrim. All the family, but especially my Dad, had to read it over and over to me as I became obsessed with it! In fact, they all referred to me as Lucy Mouse for a very long time. I still have the book and it cost 1/6.
