Another delightful day with Marc Martin, today we visit Edinburgh Gardens and meet a ping-pong playing magpie! Be sure to leave a comment on any of this weeks posts before 10pm on Thursday for your chance all 5 of this weeks illustrations- amazing! Thank you to Marc and Lamington Drive for this super giveaway! -Jenny x
