Remember this vintage book find from way back when? I’ve been looking for some more in the series at every Op Shop I go to for nearly a year now without much luck. After seeing the original blog post a lovely reader (thank you, I don’t know who you were as the package was thrown away) sent me one she had found bringing our collection to two , until now…
In the place I least expected it, one came to me. Mums elderly neighbor in Argentina (Emma called her Granny like in Totoro) popped over with a big bag of books that she had kept from when her children were young. In it was this beauty, Largo y Corto (Long and Short), in Spanish from the same series by a different publisher. Trippy!
The books were on loan whilst we were there but she let us have this one after she saw how excited I was about it. Aren’t the illustrations just the best?
And there are those heart knee patches again. I wonder where the next one will turn up?
