Two cases

Forgive me if I'm getting boring but I'm in a bit of a suitcase groove...
After the school one I kept looking at the stack of six waiting patiently in my bedroom. Then I sold two this month and that was enough I had a taste for pasting again. I couldn't be patient any longer. I was on a suitcase roll. These two were both transformed in a day.
 Let me introduce you to 'Beaky' first.
Beaky is the greedy duck in this Ladybird story from 1950.
 One side is very outdoors and farmyardy whilst the other is Beaky and the owl.
Beaky is a small slightly scruffy around the edges case. I tackled it first in case I made a mistake!
 Waiting patiently below it is 'Pets'.
 which as you guessed is covered top to bottom...
 side to side...
 and end to end in all manner of pets.
Quite when hedgehogs became pets I'm not sure but I know a little jammer who'd love one! Luckily the book doesn't suggest anything but feeding them.
Now fourblank cases left and a stack of books and vintage wallpaper.
What next?
