About a month ago, Jesse and I took Sebastian to a carnival at an elementary school and stumbled upon their book sale room. Neither of us can resist cheap, old books, especially beautifully illustrated ones. These beauties set us back about 50 cents each. Even though they had been much loved by generations of elementary school students, I still find that an amazing bargain for such fantastically illustrated works.
