I recently popped into a favourite op shop of mine which I like to visit part of my Friday morning routine, once I drop Cohen off at family day care. Sarah will often fall asleep after dropping Cohen off and since she rarely transfers well from car to pram or to the house to continue her nap, I take a good old drive to this sweet op shop. Sarah will often wake when we arrive at which time I give her morning tea and she is happy whilst I have a look around the shop and have a chat.
I have such a weakness for old children’s books that I can rarely say no to them. Hence the haul you see here.
The Enid book is obvious inclusion, but do you know what the others books are?
There are twenty-six hardcover “A Serendipity Book’s” by award winning children’s author Stephen Cosgrove with many of them having been illustrated by Robin James. Check out some of these illustrations and titles, they are too die for.
Then there is the Enid book and colo,urful illustrations to swoon over.
I scored the whole haul of books for five dollars, but I wasn’t to know at the time that five to eight dollars a book is going price by collectors. Considering all my titles are hardcovers I’m rather pleased.
