booksale bliss

This is our Lys after a used book sale at the library.  Only, she actually couldn't have held all her new books in her arms like this—reality was a huge, heeeaaavy paper bag with tons of great stuff inside!  One of my favourites was an edition of Beauty and the Beast with an unassuming cover of green-leafy design (it had lost its slipcover).  The illustrations inside (by Hilary Knight) are just lovely!!  I also got a Cinderella book by the same illustrator, but I didn't realize it until I got home.  Here's a link to the Beauty and the Beast book—you can zoom in on the cover and get an idea of its prettiness.

In other news, I love children's books.  And I need a new bookshelf for them.
