I loved these books as a kid. I got this copy from a retired school teacher and it appears to be unused. I shall offer this up as a ring to see what creativity it can inspire in other BookCrossers.

Each participant may do 1 or 2 pictures. Please leave your BC name by the pages that you do. If there are pages left (and I expect there will be), I'll reoffer the book for a second ring after scanning and posting the results of the first ring. Have fun! :)

I just got this in the mail! I couldn't resist flipping through it right away. My favorite pages, at first glance, are the kissing contest and the boat to travel around the world. I'll mull some more on it this weekend (and there's an introduction to read, too).

Thanks, Sarah, this is going to be fun!

I colored the kissing contest page, and had a great time doing it!

Another page I considered was the very last one, which instructs the artist to insert a modern house between two Victorian mansions. The idea reminded me of my neighborhood -- we have a half-dozen Lustrons mingled with Federal-style brick homes -- but in the end, I didn't feel up to the challenge of coloring the minutely-detailed gingerbread on the existing houses in the book.

That's the only quibble I had -- many pre-drawn outlines were in the pictures, conflicting with the authors' ideal that children should draw freely.

It was enjoyable mental exercise, anyway. Some other pages that tempted me to color them were "Presenting the King and Queen" and the "Underground House".

Mailing to gnissorkoob today.

It's here. I didn't know what to expect, but this is great. Have not decided what to do. "What do you think the tooth fairy looks like?" is a possibility.

Sorry I kept this over-long. I did the tooth fairy and the underground house. I agree with Megi about the book being a fun mental exercise beyond the actual coloring. Ready to mail to lilmztaz. And again, I apologize for keeping it on my desk so long.

Mailed 06/29/06.

Oh, man, does this ever look fun. Tomorrow is my last day of summer classes, so as soon as my work is finished I'll be able to play! Everything looks so fun--how to choose? I hope my design, whatever it may be, stacks up to the wonderful creations you all have done so far!
