Ralph Steadman

Picture Puffins are often special, lost treasures. 
'Fly Away Peter' by author and cartoonist Frank Dickens was first published in 1964. It has delicious ink and wash illustrations by Ralph Steadman and tells the story of a friendship between two characters that are different; Jeffrey the giraffe who has a short neck, and Peter a bird who can't fly. They decide to play together, but a simple  game of hide-and-seek gets complicated, and eventually involves all of the animals.
