Re: Favorite children's books

I collect children's books from the 1950s and 1960s that are illustrated by Libico Maraja such as

"The Seven Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor"

"Africa's Legends"

and my favourite "The Wizard of Oz"

I also have "Gulliver's Travels", "Alice through the Looking Glass", "The Splendour Book of Ballet", "Tales from Hans Anderson" and "Around the World in 80 Days" all illustrated by him. I plan to buy more this year though "Alice in Wonderland" is probably too expensive for me to buy.

I also collect other illustrated versions of "The Wizard of Oz". I only collect the first Oz book and only versions from the 1950s-1970s that has illustrations to my liking.
