Jenny the Jeep
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. Jenny is a very pretty Jeep indeed - instead of being green like all the others, she is pink! Jenny is proud to be pink but her peers grow increasingly jealous and mercilessly tease and exclude her. When the troops head to Italy, disaster strikes and, when the soldiers ask for help, only brave Jenny can save the day. Illustrated in colour, with a heartwarming text, this enchanting story will charm readers of all ages.
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.
