Title: A Bundle of Ballads
Illustrator: William Stobbs
Winning Year: 1959

This is an illustrated collection of old ballads, that were originally told by minstrels and passed down the generations. The minstrels disappeared, but the stories they had sung were remembered by old country folk who remembered them from childhood.
