The reissue of Briggs' award winning illustrated story of his parents, issued by Jonathan Cape the year after the book was first published. However, Briggs continued to produce humour for children, in works such as the Unlucky Wally series and The Bear.I just feel that Ethel sometimes came across as someone who thought she was better than others which diminished the affinity I had with her. Nothing is invented, nothing embroidered – this is the reality of two decent, ordinary lives of two people who, as Briggs tells the story, become representative of us all.
