ABC Father Tuck art by ( many by Francis Brundage)
In book six, Tammy writes in her diary, "As you might imagine, an opossum, a mongoose, and a bird cannot read at all; although I had taught Zeke and Cedric to write their names. They had learned the first four letters of the alphabet from an ABC book Lord Wixby had given me. I was proud of them. After all, how many animals would ever want to read?"
Several books were discovered in the shed along with the diary including this one by Father Tuck. We imagine that Tammy used this book to teach Cedric and Zeke to read.
We have partially restored it to its Victorian beauty. We did did keep the withered pages intact as we wanted the reader to experience the joy of viewing the book as would any modern-day collector.
We hope that children may learn and enjoy from it. Look for other ABC books in this vintage 1883 series.
Raphael Tuck & Sons was a business started by Raphael Tuck and his wife in Bishopsgate in the City of London on October 1866, selling pictures and greeting cards, and eventually selling postcards, the latter being the most successful. This included children's books that were illustrated by some of the best artists of the age.
Their business was one of the most well known in the 'postcard boom' of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Their contributions left a lasting effect on most of the artistic world. During The Blitz, the company headquarters, Raphael House, was destroyed including the originals for most of their series. The company never fully recovered.
We will be restoring several ABC books and listing them here as they would make wonderful art for any child's bedroom wall. Art is in Public Domain as it is over one hundred years old. Circ 1900-1902
We invite you to follow Tammy Wurtherington on a magical journey into the land of Kira where anything can happen. In this newly discovered 1883 diary, you will discover many wonderful characters like Zeke, the Flying Opossum, and Cedric the Mongoose, who accompany Tammy on her journey to Capira to present a petition to return the kingdom to its former glory. You will meet the pirate, Captain Flynn, who loves to have his guests walk the plank and the loveable Kakuna villagers who's harvest is soon to be confiscated by the royal soldiers. But please beware of the Oxboar forest, where the evil Hoarggs reside otherwise you may end up in a stew-pot.
Tammy has an adventure in which she learns to love all the strange living creatures she encounters in a magical land. Before she departs, all of Kira will fall in love with The Little Doll Girl who changed them forever and became a legend.
