Look what came in the mail today!
This is the book my brother and I loved and shared growing up. Being 7 years my elder, he would read many of the stories to me and when he was gone, I would look at the pictures and imagine side stories to go with them. Despite being good to our books, we eventually had to tape the spine and the cover picture faded. When we grew out of storybooks, my parents stored it safely with many other of our temporarily forgotten treasures. They are still guarding this one like dragons..I think they are afraid of losing it for good and never being able to read it to their grandchildren.
I went on a hunt for My Biggest Storybook Ever to call my very own and was greeted with very little results. I am told by the lady at the bookstore that this is because it went out of print. How such a wonderful book could be left to forget like that is beyond me, but eventually I found the pot of gold on Amazon. I ordered 3 copies just to be safe hahaha:) And to give one to my brother of course..
The art in this book is beautiful and the stories are still good some 20 years later! Sammy Scarecrow’s birthday tree still makes me dream, Pip the pup still makes me smile and Fancy the pig is still adorable!
Do you know about this wonderful book I am such a fan girl of?
Now excuse me while I return to my childhood for the evening! 🙂
