Me too! I love browsing children's books at the bookstore even when there's no child in the family to shop for. Too many though I wonder who they thought they were writing the book for or what the heck they thought the child would find appealing. How some get published and find their way into a bookstore is baffling.

One of my all-time favorite covers...it was first published in 1955.

It's been reprinted with different covers, but this one is still the best.

I gave it to my sister as a gift...I was eleven and she was seven.

She hated it...and was insulted and pissed at me.

At seven, she was already reading fiction about horses and dogs.

This one was too "babyish" for her tastes...even at seven, she was already quite the bitch.

She should have held on to it...probably was a first edition with a dust jacket...it would be quite pricey today.

Every other Sunday, Jacksonvillle's Times-Union's book review page features a children's book, and I can't resist reading the review because it's always so entertaining. smile
