An archive of charming watercolour drawings by the children's author and illustrator behind the Church Mice book series has sold for over £150,000.<br />
<br />
Graham Oakley was best known for creating the highly-praised picture books from the 1970s until 2000.<br />
<br />
The beautifully-illustrated books focus on the adventures of a group of mice living in a church in the fictional English town of Wortlethorpe and their guardian Sampson the cat.
