Several years ago, I decided to track down two of my favorite books from childhood that had been given away. I had these books memorized, and you'll notice that both books involved dress-up and animals. Hmmmm, a look into my future, perhaps?
The first book was My Dolly and Me. I loved the illustrations by Eloise Wilkins! I found it on Ebay and paid way more than the 25 cent price on the cover! What a nice surprise last weekend at the Peddler's Mall when I saw the Little Golden Book called The Little Book. One look at the cover, and I knew it was illustrated by Eloise Wilkins. I had previously found another book illustrated by her, so I've started a small collection!
My second favorite book was Henry Goes to a Party. Henry was a cartoon character from the newspaper. The yellow book was the one I had and I was able to find one on Ebay, but it is not in the best shape.
Guess where I found the green version? Yep, at that Peddler's Mall last weekend! It is in great condition, and I was so surprised to see that it included more storyline than the yellow book! Below you will see Henry getting ready for the party - those pages and a few more were never in my original.
