Shabby Sunday: Hans in Luck by Paul Galdone – 1979 (Brothers Grimm) #ChildrensBooks #VintageBooks #ShabbySunday

Shabby Sunday

I have a bunch of old vintage books and one of my plans when I first started blogging was to do a post every now and then sharing one of my cherished vintage books. Then I thought there might be other book bloggers out there that have some vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from childhood that they might want to share. I decided to start a meme titled ‘Shabby Sunday’ for those who would like to participate and share some of their old vintage books. Do you have some shabby books you’d like to share? If so, please feel free to participate as anyone can join. Feel free to use my meme image if you’d like to. If you decide to do this meme, please consider linking back to me so that I can see the book you’re sharing.

Hans in Luck by Paul Galdone

Hans in Luck is a children’s book I found at a sale many years ago. It became a favorite right away and now remains on our shelf. This fairy tale is German in origin and was recorded by the Brothers Grimm in 1812. This is a retelling that’s simplified, but the author stays true to the original.

Book Review: Little Arliss (Old Yeller #3) by Fred Gipson #ChildrensBooks #BookReview #OldYeller

Little Arliss

By Fred Gipson

My thoughts on this book:

Roughly six years has passed since the last book and Arliss is now twelve years old. Frankly, he’s sick and tired of being called “little” and just wants respect from the adults in his life. Everyone’s constantly telling Arliss that he can’t do something and he’s fed up, so when the chance arises for him to prove himself, he takes it. The settlers are dealing with a crazy horse who’s actually killed a man. They need to catch it and Arliss sees an opportunity to finally prove that he’s old enough to start doing adult tasks. He offers to try, but everyone just laughs at him which makes him even more angry. Not long after, against his father’s orders, Arliss sets out to catch the horse and successfully brings him home. He has plans to work on breaking the horse without his parents permission which is extremely dangerous.

Book Review: Savage Sam (Old Yeller #2) by Fred Gibson #SavageSam #BookReview #VintageBooks

Savage Sam (Old Yeller #2)

My thoughts on this book:

After reading Old Yeller a few weeks ago, my children were eager to get right into the sequel Savage Sam. It became apparent to us right away that this book was going to be very different from Old Yeller.
