Mystery Children’s Book Illustrations

We can’t find anything about the author/ illustrator M. B. Matheson from Lockharton Crescent, Edinburgh so far in staff and student lists. So we’re asking for your help.

Do any of you know who this illustrator is? There is one clue in the volume entitled Quaint Tales in Line and Rhyme. Written at the front is ‘These children’s books were written in order to try and recall Donald’s back memory which was blank after the accident’.

Whether we find out who Matheson is or not, we thought we’d share an image of the ballons on this blustery day! Enjoy!
