First up, 'Brush up your Russian- Conversations of Real Use', by Anna H. Semeonoff. This remarkable book is a series of potential dialogues you may have, should you go to Russia.
Second Up, 'A Lion in the Meadow' by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Jenny Williams. These illustrations are so beautiful! These scans don't really do it justice- each of these pages is part of a double spread. I will try and take some good photos some time soon to fully illustrate this.
