Fun Finds

I have a pretty solid collection of vintage children's books and nothing makes me happier than a new addition!

Yesterday I happened upon some real gems at a book seller's table in Williamsburg (Brooklyn). This image is from 'The Animals' Boat Ride' - a Rand Mcnally Junior Elf Book. I saw this picture and didn't need to look further, I had to own it. I even waited until I got home to look at the rest. Don't you wish you lived in this world? Which one are you? I am definitely the raccoon.

And look at this guy! Did anyone ever look better in a red striped shirt?
