As all my recent swap partners will be able to tell you I have lately been completely obsessed with altering children's board books. For years I never bent any page corners or even the spine of the book and now i'm just ripping the pages off!  Cheesy Cheesy

This was for the recent Calvin and Hobbes swap. Go have a look at the gallery - there are some AMAZING things!

This book is based on the DISGUSTING foods which Calvin's Mum is always forcing his to eat. This is her recipe book.
