The Coloured Lands by G.K. Chesterton. Illustrated by the author.
I put this on request at the library merely because it was written by G.K. Chesterton. I thought it might be a book of essays or something. Having only flipped through it and examined the table of contents thus far, I can't say more than this: It is utterly delightful. It appears to have a little bit of everything - comic poetry, stories and fairy tales, and pictures. Lots of pictures, actually. I never want to return it to the library.
