Play Street is written by Esther Wilkin (the sister of Eloise Wilkin) and illustrated by their friend Joan Esley. These ladies created so many wonderful books, it was Eloise Wilkins work in particular that first sparked my interest in collecting little golden books. They capture a magical charm and a sweetness of childhood will always hold a special appeal for me.
