MAY 11 PROMPT: Lost Books

This 1957 Edition of the Hundred and One Dalmatians had been hidden from me as a child because my mother could not trust me to keep from coloring the illustrations (yes, that‘s my handiwork above) #lostbook. Although this is considered a first edition, the story appeared in serial form in Woman‘s Day Magazine as “The Great Dog Robbery” in 1956 & 1957.

ReadZenRites Thank you @DebinHawaii It is was a favorite of mine, too... even after I was forced to switch to the Disney version with already-colored illustrations. 😬 2y
DebinHawaii For what it's worth I think you have great coloring talent! 😆👍 2y
ReadZenRites Thanks @DebinHawaii 😂 I was mightily provoked that I never got to color the lady‘s skirt. It‘s so half finished that way🙁 2y

Brother William is sent to an Italian abbey with a famous library to investigate a mysterious death. There is also a #lostbook by Aristotle to locate, the key to the mystery.
I loved this book. It's part #crime novel, part medieval library porn, and part philosophical treatise. Satisfying on all fronts!
