I'd looked for this particular book many times over the years, hoping to add it to my grand children's libraries because their parent's had loved it so much. And every time I looked for it I came up empty,, no doubt because it had been out of print for some time. It's not the only book I've searched for and been disappointed not to be able to find it. Oh I know there are rare book places to look, as well as online book finders for out-of-print tomes, but I never wanted to spend $50 or more for a simple child's book that would have been $10 to start with. Imagine my delight in finding this little book at the local bookstore, all shiny and new with a beautiful cover! I grabbed one quickly and brought it home for my own library and hope that soon the grand kids will be enjoying it just as much as their parents did all those years ago.
Some things are good enough to keep around and I'm glad someone else felt the same way about this one.
