I’m not the only person who thinks Barry Cunningham is a rather wonderful children’s book publisher.
This week he collected his OBE from the Princess Royal at Buckingham Palace. Not a man to pass up an opportunity to dress up (he often mentions the puffin story and I’ve heard he’s appeared at parties as an elf, although I’ve yet to see it in the flesh), Barry looked pretty spiffing in his kilt, as I think you’ll agree:
Congratulations, Barry. Keep those new discoveries coming. And I know you wondered about it, but I hope you didn’t curtsey.
