Published by Zagava – 2016 – Germany 21 x 29 cm – 122 pages – hardcover “I just finished the last of the ninety odd drawings for a sort of children’s book entitled: The Hauntings at Tankerton Park – and how they got rid of them, a tale in verse… The words I wrote some time ago but the drawings have taken ages. I say ‘sort of’ children’s book because I wrote and drew it really to amuse myself and though it’s just the sort of book that I would have loved as a child, I was a peculiar sort of child (still am) and it might be too macabre for some. It is about a Victorian haunted house, quite mad and part of it is a rhyming alphabet.” —Reggie Oliver”In the year Eighteen ninety, a banker called Clark Bought a place in the country called Tankerton Park Mr Clark, Mrs Clark, with Laura and Faye Their two little daughters, moved in one March day. And with them came Ron, their pet dog, and a horse And the usual posse of servants of course. They found the place elegant roomy and smart, But terribly troublesome right from the start. Some quite inexplicable things would appear Which struck the whole household with horror and fear The strangest thing was that they could record a Sequence of haunts in alphabet order”
