Merry Christmas everyone. Happy Hanukkah and soon to be Happy New Year. The Last (and technically the first) Great Monday Give of the year is here, and I hope you'll be as psyched as I am about it. Shortly after I found this book and reviewed it, I stumbled across another copy and couldn't wait to give it away. So, this is a really good copy of The Golden Treasury of Children's Literature. This 1971 edition features over 540 pages of children's book greatness with stories illustrated by Charles Harper, Eloise Wilkin, The Provensens, Gordon Laite, Hillary Knight, Lilian Obligado, William Dugan, Kanako Tanabe, J.P. Miller and more... The awesomeness of this fat tome is blinding, really. Usually this book gets priced for around $10, but I think in the coming years its price will rise as more people actually look inside and see what's there. Another book that features the Charley Harper illustrated story "Bambi Finds the Meadow" called The Golden Treasury of Animal Stories and Poems sometimes sells for over $75 because of it.
Anywho, this book rocks hard.... All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post before midnight ~ January 6, 2009. A winner will be selected at random and announced the following day.
And now, the winner of last week's give of The King, The Mice and the Cheese... Anamaria! Congrats big time sister! E-mail me webe(at)soon(dot)com with your mailing info.
Have a great one gang!
