We all have books we love. I have bunches and often reread them.
Recently, I moved several boxes of #1 and #2son’s toys from storage to the “toy room.” One box included books. When #1son visited the toy room, he saw the mini-books, picked up one, and said he was glad I’d saved them because he read every one.
I had no idea!
I went on a quest…
to look for more Moby Books Illustrated Classics by Playmore and found there were way more than the twelve I’d bought at a discount store for 50 cents. The books are sized 5 1/2 in by 4 in. The stories have been abridged so a youngster could understand the story. Illustrations are included as well. The covers are enticing. In the seventies and eighties, they were often purchased at grocery store or were included in Happy Meals. Titles include:
The Wizard of Oz
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
So far, I have acquired all but eleven. But I’m determined to find them to complete the set. If you see any of the ones
The Call of the Wild
A Tale of Two Cities
The Prince and the Pauper
Red Badge of Courage
King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm
Pride and Prejudice
I hope Little One will visit her VB one day, snuggle in the comfy chair, and read them—maybe with me.
Do you have a favorite book or two or three?
I love mysteries and because of that, I’ve written three (award-winning) ones. Scratch your funny bone with:
