“Wonderfully illustrated with charming cartoons by illustrator Carol Davies, also of Shrewsbury, it features Blodwyn the sheep, and an explanatory narrative which is simple without being dumbed down.
There are also some photographs, together with activities for children. Commemorating a piece of Shropshire’s heritage in this way is a lovely idea, and it is colourfully presented.”
