Hey, I wish I was born in 1986! 😉
All those books look so colourful. Thanks for this! There’s also some pins available on eBay already.
It’s a habit!
85 it is!
Sorry ‘bout that. 😀
Actually, the junior novel is 128 pages.
Awesome collection! I’ll be purchasing the “Spirit of Adventure” and “Wild Life” books for the covers alone… and for the crayons… concerning the latter.
By the way, isn’t Dug a Retriever and not a Labrador?
I’ve bought The Art of Up already. The review and pictures will be coming up tomorrow. Just do a search on “parka blogs” on google if you want to check out the insides of the book.
How can people always get stuff earlier? Parka, your blog is awesome and I’m jealous because you already get that book.
Some books are faster, some slower. Just that this one is the former. Anyway, my book review is out and it’s not certified to be free of spoilers.
