This wonderful story 'Bill the Minder' follows the adventures of 15-year-old Bill and his cousins, Boadicea and Chad. In the process of their adventures they meet multitude weird and wonder characters such as The Ancient Marina, The Triplets, The Doctor, The Real Soldier and The Lost Grocer. They encounter various unique problems on their way which they solve the use of fantastic machines crafted by Bill.

This classic story is accompanied by 16 incredible colour illustrations many black and white woodcuts by W. Heath Robinson an English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of ridiculously complicated machines – for achieving deceptively simple objectives. Such was (and is) his fame, that the term ‘Heath Robinson’ entered the English language during the First World War, as a description of any unnecessarily complex and implausible contrivance.

This book was originally published in 1912 and was later televised as a series during the 1980s. We are republishing it here as part of our ‘Pook Press’ imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in children’s literature.
