About The Book
A joyful gift book celebrating the best-loved children's series of all time.
Masterfully compiled by Dan Postgate, Bagpuss: The Complete Scripts will contain facsimiles of all thirteen scripts with annotations by its original writer, Oliver Postgate.
It will also include an introduction from Dan, specially commissioned photographs of the characters from the show, archive behind-the-scenes photos from the Postgate-Firmin collection, lyrics from all of the songs, and contributions from its musicians, Sandra Kerr and John Faulkner.
Fans will be delighted to discover that Gabriel the Toad was based on a real toad that lived in the basement of Peter Firmin's flat and that the songs in the series were inspired by international folk music. Plus, our favourite fact yet, Bagpuss was originally meant to be a ginger marmalade cat, but due to a complete fluke, he ended up with his distinctly un-feline electric pink coat.
