I loved this book when I was a kid. I thought the pictures were absolutely fascinating. I tore little strips of paper to mark every page that I thought had a great picture (so, basically I used a whole ream of paper) and every time my grandparents came to visit I had to show them all my marked pages. Found this copy at a yard sale for 50 cents, and it doesn't appear to have ever been opened. Maybe I'll get to tearing those strips and mark my favorite pictures again . . . . .

I got this for Christmas when I was ten years old and read it so much that I wore the dang cover almost off. Loved this book. STILL love this book. My geekiness showed early.
