I got three of the Gryphon and Sabine books by Nick Bantock this weekend at the bookstore for a great deal. I'd always put off getting them because they are kind of expensive... and although they are wonderful, they seem a little extravagant. Well I saw them for $2.99 each so I got a set of 3! This is the second series. His work is so lovely and it's such a neat idea that it has things that pull out and unfold that you can examine. That's why it is really cool to own them. I recently got a few of his books from the library, but it's just not quite the same. If you haven't already seen them, be sure to check them out... either at the library or the book store.
