A nice Ferguson Dewar "Wonderful Island of Yum" painting. Is this from a Playhour annual?

Hi Sue. I just picked up a copy of the 1966 Playhour Annual and that artwork is indeed featured. Here's the printed version (I love the baby whale!).

Ahhh, a maypole! Where have all those joyful, responsibility-free days gone? Well I know when mine made a sudden disappearance. I was about eight, I'd been moved up a whole year in the middle of a school year, given a desk fairly near the door, miles away from the teacher, whose desk was over by the windows, and who seemed oblivious to my presence. Come the summer exams and I was placed 49th out of the 52 children in the class. My dad did his nut. Innocence died that day.

Thanks, Phil. It's amazing that there's always a convenient railway track laid out no matter where Prof Yum and his friends want to go!
