1943 Hide and Seek Vintage Mechanical Book

Hope you don't mind another photo heavy post. 
I'm too tired to feel inspired or to be inspiring. 
Let's let each other off the "inspire me to greatness" hook
 and do the eye candy thing, shall we? 
~ paper, art, illustrations, children's literature ~
Holy Mother of Batman, Robin and heck......the whole cotton pickin' Justice League,
I'm so in love with this book. 
It's strange.  It's gorgeous.  It's unique.  It's fun.  It's divinely peachy.  
It's a riddle, joke book.  It's got little pockets, windows and levers to pull or open,
revealing the answer. 
(Do they call these Mechanical Books?  I'm drawing a blank).
I hate the small pictures and wish you could hold it in your hands. 
It's one of the neatest little books I've ever seen.  The colors are so rich and glorious. 
Pull her tongue.  Really?
It still has the little secret report booklet inside.  Usually children lose these right away. 
For this to still be here increases it's value. 
I'll probably sell it on Etsy eventually. 
I'll keep it a week or two and look at it 100 more times. 
I hope you are
Choose Joy. 
Be blessed and Be a Blessing.

Woah, woah, woah.......MOM.......I said I wanted the GREEN Fiesta bowl! 
I'll wait.

Shoot!  ETA:  I'll be having a giveaway very soon. 

The purchase was made and I'm awaiting it's arrival. 

It has something to do with this perfectly amiable and creative blogger
