An exhibition showcasing many of the original illustrations, drawings, watercolours, manuscripts and personal items relating to 'Ivy's' magical world of 'Pookie' the flying rabbit with his beautiful wings and the characters from 'The Animal Shelf' series of books and television series.

During the war, Ivy joined the Police and while working long hours on a switchboard, she happened to doodle a picture of a fairy sitting on a toadstool, with a little rabbit in front. By chance it appeared that the fairy’s wings belonged to the rabbit. Ivy thought that fairies were “two a penny” so erased the fairy and kept the little winged rabbit. She named him Pookie because "he had a little pookie face". She wrote his story and illustrated it with delicate watercolour pictures. It began “This is the story of Pookie, a little white furry rabbit, with soft, floppity ears, big blue eyes and the most lovable rabbit smile in the world.”
