#OldCoolBooks #decklededges

My Happy Hollisters books have deckled edges. This one is a 1960s book club edition so the edges are a bit yellowed. I always loved this cover & that they went to Denmark as that's where my dad's father was from.

I added a pic of the inside cover page for @ReadZenRites as the splotches of color on black & white cry out for some coloring & after seeing her work on her childhood 101 Dalmatians, I know who to ask!😆👍

ReadZenRites Oh yes, that illustration has my fingers just itching to color them in!💕😊 2y
ReadZenRites I love that Danish connection. So sweet! The best Disney stories weren‘t Disney‘s at all, it seems! 😁 2y
Linsy Love this!!! 🙌💖 2y

A few more titles - these in great shape (from the 60s!) - for my rebuilding this favorite childhood set of books. Who knew these kids were so well-travelled as to have an adventure in Denmark! I may have to just read this one ASAP...
Sent to me by a lovely #bookfairy 💕

thegirlwiththelibrarybag These look so fun! I haven't heard of them but they give me Enid Blyton vibes! Do they go on unsupervised holidays and solve mysteries? (edited) 2y
aeeklund I love their outfits on the cover of this one! (And so glad these were able to find a good home. 😉) 2y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @thegirlwiththelibrarybag They are not entirely unsupervised but may very well be the American version of Blyton books? I have not read those! 😳 2y

elkeo_TheBookDragon @aeeklund They sure are snazzy dressers when they travel abroad! 😹😹 2y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @thegirlwiththelibrarybag And yes! They solve mysteries left & right! 2y
aeeklund @elkeo Also, I totally thought it was a spider on the front of the Castle Rock Mystery initially, and went "NOOOOOPE, nopenopenope--oh it's fine." 2y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @aeeklund ME TOO!! ❌🕷🕸🕷❌ 2y
LeahBergen These are such great covers! 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @elkeo, oops, yes have corrected autocorrects version of Blyton 😳 She wrote mostly adventure mystery stories featuring kids with minimal adult interference (they often packed picnics and waved the kids off from the gate) 2y
Jess_Read_This I love these covers! Such a great series too!❤️ 2y
tpixie Fun books! Loved them!! 2y
