*cracks knuckles* What’s next?
“Your favourite childhood book.”
Wow. There are too many.
The My Book House series was huge for me, particularly volume 2, which was filled with fairy tales. I remember crying when I realized that the books were geared toward different ages, and I was afraid that I was going to have to leave the fairy tales behind. If you’ve read my work, you know that I never did.
I wish I still had these books for my kids, but they were sold at a garage sale when I was in high school. I think I’m going to have to save my pennies and buy this set, though. Old books are like old friends, and opening them is always like coming home. The set runs about $70 these days… though I can’t imagine what shipping here would cost!
Side note: I came across something when I was looking for pictures. Normally I say if you own something, do what you want with it (heck, I customize un-restorable toys myself), but having lost my own set of these books, this made me want to cry when I first ran across it. I wouldn’t hold it against this person, or say she’d done something wrong; art journals are important. But man. The value of a thing really does lie in the heart of the beholder, doesn’t it? 🙂
