Little golden books


This is a little golden book, "Wim is gone", especially made for the dutch market, published in 1959, illustrated by Rogier Boon.
It was one of the favourites of my children.

The story is about a little boy who decides to go with his bike to Spain. And then of course, the whole city goes looking for him.

I would love to have fabric with little cars like these printed on it.

This little golden book "I can fly" was illustrated by Mary Blair, so very cute! I saw some illustrations she made, when I visited a Disney exposition In Paris last winter. You can see some of her other work here.

I love little golden books too - my mom used to buy me one everytime we went grocery shopping when I was little. I had so many! Your banner looks great too.

Sorry I haven't responded to your question about swaps, I have just found them through blogs I like to read, but there is a site called Swap Bot - http://www.swap-bot.com/ - that lists lots of different swaps. And, they are usually for people from all around the world.

Cheers!
