In a bit of a Northmead mood today, so here's an illustration from New House. Both Northmead books were illustrated by Robert Hodgson, although they have very different styles. Northmead Nuisance has better drawings than its predecessor. This picture is of Nicky and Kay working on the plans for their ill-advised insurance scheme. When I first glanced through the book, I thought that this was a picture of two middle-aged teachers rather than two fourteen-year-olds. But there you have it.
