And since I'm feeling all wistful and nostalgic, let's head back down memory lane to 123 Sesame Street why don't we? How great is this book, really? When I saw it at a book shop (for the genuine bargain of $1), my brain literally exploded with memories and awesomeness. (Please excuse my penchant for SS of late. Kindergarten is looming, and I've got these heavy in the rotation while the boy's still tolerant.) Two of my favorite Sesame Street illustrators rule here, Mel Crawford and Joe Mathieu... a ton of stories -- The Count is, of course, counting -- Ernie's being ridiculous -- Sherlock is being Sherlock -- Cookie meets a genie -- everybody plays baseball with some dragons -- plus Sam the Robot! Part of a series of storybooks that were created between 1971 and 1979, I loved all of them for their vivid illustrations and busy nature. So hefty and full of fun. Enjoy!
