An early example of the work of both Helen Oxenbury, twice winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal for children's book illustration, and legendary oddball Ivor 'Never Knowingly Understood' Cutler: poet, harmonium player and composer of deeply strange ditties, who at the end of his life was sharing a record label with Oasis, and who had a memorable way with album titles: his back catalogue includes Velvet Donkey, Dandruff and Jammy Smears.
