Have a Humbug!

Percy Kelly's Drawing Book

Chris Wadsworth


Have a Humbug! tells the story of Kelly’s childhood in Workington; his first home in Corporation Road, his first school, his first paint box, his first job aged 14 and the wonderful letters he sent to his step daughters.

It is full of colourful drawings and paintings with pages encouraging children to add their own response and make the book their own. Percy used to get into trouble for drawing and painting in books so he would definitely approve. It comes with a pack of Derwent Academy watercolour pencils, a paint brush and a graphics pencil. It was written for children aged 7 – 11 but it has appeal for all ages. Go on – surprise yourself. Pick up a pencil and draw. And don’t tell me you can’t draw a straight line – I’ve heard that one far too many times. Straight lines are not required for drawing!
