One of Elise's birthday gifts was a hardback copy of The Secret Garden, illustrated by Tasha Tudor ($1). I am slowly collecting all the Tudor books for her (okay, also for myself). I love the sweet line drawings and the very old-fashioned ways that Tudor represents.
My mom suggested, "Can't you get online and order everything from Ebay right now?"
I could. But what would be the fun in that?
Quick poll: when giving a special book, do you inscribe the cover page with a note, or leave it blank to protect its value?
