    As a child I purchased one of Eliza Cook's poetry books for 1 old penny at a jumble sale and still have it today. I learnt by heart and performed ' The Mouse and the Cake' one Christmas to my family, all of us would perform either a song, poem, some magic for the adults when we all got together as a family.
