As if by Magic the Shopkeeper appeared...

David Mckee has passed away today at the age of 87, but his talent for storytelling will live on.

Author and illustrator of the children’s books including Elmer, Mr Benn, King Rolo and Not Now Bernard has died following a short illness.

In each story, Mr Benn visited a fancy dress store and tried on a different outfit, before leaving the shop through a magic door and going on a journey related to his costume.

So my little tribute is Mr Benn as Robocop!

As a kid I loved the Mr Benn TV series and King Rolo and it taught children everywhere they can be anything they dreamt they could be, an absolute legend.    

RIP and thanks for the great memories
