Old Lob I remember reading this book Old Lob and his Family way back in 1958. I was English illiterate in 1958 having migrated from India to Singapore. I remember reading the book word by word with the help of my standard 1 teacher. Today at 67, with post Graduate degree in Economics, I am a Financial Services Consultant with a global American insurance Company. When I turn back to Old Lob and his Family, it is a sweet memory today. To this day I remember the names of some of the characters like Mr Dan, the dog, Mrs Cuddy, the cow, Mr Grumps, the goat etc. to this day.
