These collectible children's books have been lovingly restored for their first printing since the Second World War. Following the release of A Story about Ducks and A Railway ABC, V&A Publishing has rediscovered two more touching stories by the inimitable author and artist Jack Townend. Ben tells the story of a lonely steamroller. Ben loves to work hard for Mr Dodie but, at night, when he is all alone, pools of tears collect beneath his boiler. He is lonely and yearns for brothers and sisters. One day Ben looks across a field and sees a puff of white smoke. Overwhelmed with happiness, he hastily rushes to meet steamroller Matilda, and the pair agree to run away together. Delightful lithographs accompany this sweet and endearing love story.

Jack Townend (1918 - 2005) taught at the Ruskin School of Art, where he tutored, among others, Shirley Hughes. In 1948 Townend was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
