Dean and Doreen in The Sports Car

Ahh, another vintage odd-shaped children’s book – and only 29 cents! I found this morsel in the same stack as my Golden Shape Books, and it’s got a whole different vibe and style. This is probably because it was published in 1970, and was printed in the Netherlands (so how did I end up with it in Indiana?). It seems rather rare, as Google is only returning 10 results.*

*UPDATE: Now I’m the #1 result. Nice.

  1. My name is Doreen and I am in Childcare > I would like to know how I can purchase this book and where.

  2. I had the same book from childhood as well. I am wondering where to get another copy. Funny how I ended up in working in a field that men still work in predominantly. I know that this book inspired me as a child since I had been interested in cars as well. I wonder if there is another copy out there somewhere?
