Our Bridge Street Bedtime Story this week is Part One (of Three) of Mervyn Peake’s 1948 “LAetters From a Lost Uncle (from polar regions)”, written (and magnificently illustrated) by the same author as one of BST’s previous stories, “Captain Slaughterboard Drops Anchor”.
In the frozen Polar wastes, an eccentric explorer bangs away at an ancient typewriter with freezing fingers, intending to send the story of his extraordinary exploits to a nephew back in England he has never met. With a tortoise-like mutant named Jackson as his only companion, the Uncle has devoted his life to the search for a mythical White Lion. Accompanying these “letters” are fantastical pencil drawings of all their improbable adventures.
