Hilda Faunce and Frank Waters

The magic pudding

Ronald Searle was only coming up in relation to the movie in my searches, which itself inundated the results, wagga.


I know, and Wikipedia doesn't mention anywhere that Ronald Searle was the author of a book of that name so you are quite right to nominate John Burke as a possibility. But I already remembered there most definitely was a book, having handled a landscape format copy of it years ago at work, and specified "book" in all my searches to remember when that title was published, which I thought I should include here. It was done like a children's Easy book, all cartoon-like drawings, in Ronald Searle's unique and distinctive style, to accompany his story, recounted with minimal romance in the finish, in contrast to the movie. Now it is out of print. The film was based on a play entitled Flying Crazy, according to Wikipedia.

wagga, I specified "book" in my searches too, but obviously didn't find the book you were referencing. ;)) It sounds like a good one!
