I'm guessing a Roger Hargreaves Mr. Men book. Mrs. Wobble the Waitress springs to mind, but I think Wobbletown cropped up in more than one.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Well, I confess to having had a google, but I did read the entire story.

Molly Whuppie and the Double faced Giant. Sounded dangerously hairy-arsed feminist to me.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Don't forget the h at the end of Pooh. But it was The House at Pooh Corner. Poohsticks wasn't invented until the second book.

My favourite book as a small hairy-arsed feminist.  It's Scottish; I wondered if Kirst would know it.  Your go.

I discovered that the Bridge of One Hair actually exists, it seems. It's a rock formation in Aberdeenshire.

I had my go and Tom B is bamboozling us at the moment.

Edit: it was on a website called The Baldwin Project, allegedly of English fairly tales. Charterhall will be along in a moment to object to this anglocentricity.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

No, never heard of it. But I was only in Scotland from age one to age not quite five, and then the rest of my childhood was in Yorkshire.

Tim and WB, yes it is but I can't recall which one. I think it belongs in the 1920s or 30s, tho, as Brown family car ownership was occasionally alluded to after that.

(re-read most of the books last spring and summer during work down-time and am now wanting to do so again. I think I'll be even happier on the bike, tho  :)  )
