- Robin by Mary Grant Bruce
- The Boundary Riders by Joan Phipson
- The Peppermint Pig by Nina Bawden
- Seven Little Billabongs by Brenda Niall - a fascinating book on the works of Mary Grant Bruce and Ethel Turner.
- This frivolously but beautifully bound copy of my favourite poem, The Hunting of the Snark.
They were sitting in a pile just to the left of the door saying, "Buy me! Buy me!"
They were, too!! I could hear them. Honest, I could! I think they even said my name. "Hey, Jeanne! Over here!" In fact, I'm sure they did.
Anyhow, I did.
I marched back to the checkout counter and I bought them all. A whole pile of ten books from Opal Wheeler and Sybil Deucher's Great Musicians Series.
Fifty bucks the set.
I'm so excited. Rejoice with me?!
