      A Parcel of Patterns I couldn’t resist poaching Jill Paton Walsh’s alliterative title of her children’s book, A Parcel of Patterns, set in and concerning a parcel of patterned materials sent from London to a journeyman tailor in the village of Eyam, unknowingly harbouring and thus transporting the plague. A parcel from a plague-infected town is shipped into another country village, carrying the Bubonic Plague with it. In this way everyone who comes in contact with the package gradually becomes ill. This is a good book; I really liked it/5(1).
