The other day a coupon came in the mail for a local thrift shop, buy one get one free on Wednesday only, up to $10. Sweet! So sis and I went again to check it out...along with about half the city. We stood in line to check out for about a half an hour. Half hour standing in line makes me think about what I got, and I put several books back. Even some Little Golden Books, ack! What was I thinking?! Well, anyway, I got some good stuff.
Next is"Oscar's Book" by Jeffrey Moss, pictures by Michael Gross. This book is along the same lines as the "Monster at the End of this Book," in that Oscar doesn't want you to read the book. The whole time he is trying to get the reader to close the book, and then at the end, he laments that if the reader does close the book, he won't have anyone to yell at, and begs the reader to keep the book open. It's a cute book, I'd never heard of it before!
At the opposite end of the Sesame Street spectrum of books is "Grover's Guide to Good Manners" by Constance Allen, illustrated by David Prebenna. I love Grover's language and this is a cute book to read.
Next is another Raggedy Ann story, "Raggedy Ann and Andy Help Santa Claus" by Polly Curren, illustrated by June Goldsborough. This little book is from 1977, and is in good shape.
Lastly, "AnnaBelle's Wish," adapted by Susan Korman from the animated film "Annabelle's Wish," illustrated by Alan Nowell & Associates, based on a short story by Dan Henderson. I had never heard of this little book or story either. The movie is from 1997, was narrated by Randy Travis, and features Jerry Van Dyke, Jim Varney, Rue McClanahan, and Cloris Leachman. The book is published in the same year.
Linking up with The Penny Worthy Project, Thrift Score Thursdays, High on Thrifting Thursdays, and Thrifty Treasures.
Enjoy your day and your latest book!
