"This Old Man" Illustrations By Pam Adams (Published by Child's Play (International) Ltd, England 1974) Part 2

Pam Adams (1919-2010) was a British graphic artist and illustrator who teamed up with Michael Twinn in 1972 and his newly created publishing house, Child's Play ( ). Their first - and best selling - title was "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly"(1972). I haven't got that book yet but this title was published soon afterwards and it's still on sale today. I have many fond memories reading it loudly to my children but the tune always brings in mind my favourite TV character Lieutenant Columbo who was frequently humming it! This is a brief biography of the artist from the publisher's website:
