Feathers for Lunch | Lois Ehlert

Pickpick

Started the year with an old childhood favorite.

It‘s been nice to remember the books I loved before I was really into reading.

Amiable Oh, I loved these books so much when I was a kid. 🥰 2y
Skyrimir I‘ve always loved these covers. Mine are falling apart, but I refuse to get newer editions! 2y
TiminCalifornia @Amiable @Skyrimir Same here. These were great. The Swiftly Tilting Planet cover sure has that early ‘80s vibe going. It‘s dated like me! 2y
CornerLibrarian I am always amazed that she was 41 when this book was published and had been turned down so many times by publishers! 2y
Amiable @TiminCalifornia I‘m pretty sure I still my ‘80s-era copy that has that exact cover! 😀 2y

Judy Blume. Funny these are still on my shelves. I actually didn‘t like Otherwise Known As Sheila the Great. Then Again Maybe I Won‘t left me confused and angry. Took me a long time to figure out why.

This thin pamphlet must have been a novelty gift from the Milwaukee Optical Manufacturing Company decades ago. There are no author or picture credits. As a child I loved looking at the pictures and reading other countries‘ Christmas traditions.

This is the book that made me want to live in a city. Also I remembered the acronym ISAAC forever. The Independent Saturday Afternoon Adventure Club.

First epistolary and to this day I don‘t think I have read a book comprised of letters or journals I didn‘t like. Even if the premise doesn‘t sound particularly interesting, I‘ll add an epistolary novel to my TBR stack!

In one story a boy wins a horse in a contest and takes it to live in his city apartment. At 7 years old I tried to use this to counter Mom‘s assertions that a horse is “too expensive” and we “don‘t have a place to keep a horse”.

TheSpineView I bugged my parents to death and they gave me in. Later they told me they were afraid I would lose interest after they spent a bunch of money. Now here I am 50 years later still have a horse and ride regularly. 2y
TiminCalifornia @TheSpineView They are such noble looking creatures. Love having animals in my life though I never did get a horse. 2y

The Great Brain at the Academy | John D. Fitzgerald

Read these books countless times as evidenced by their tattered covers. Probably my first realization that I can utterly escape into a book, live with characters in another world. The Great Brain at the Academy was my favorite of the series. #childhoodmemories is my #decembermonthlymotif
