[mood |curiouscurious]


The other day, I was watching "American Inventor" and I got to thinking and remembering about a couple books that I really, REALLY loved as a child.

But unfortunately, I think that over the years, they may have gotten lost or accidentally thrown out or given away by my parents, and for some reason, I can NOT seem to remember either the title or name of the author/authors, so even though I want to re-purchase them, I am having a REALLY hard time locating them, and I am hoping that maybe someone on here has these books and/or knows the title and/or the name of the author or authors and can help me out.

The first book was a big children's soft-cover paperback book (I think it was at least a couple hundred pages) about pet care. It had chapters/sections for each kind of pet, from the usual (dogs, cats, fish, etc.) to the unusual (exotic animals, reptiles, rodents, etc.) It was illustrated but the pictures were not actual photos, but cartoons. The book was about the different aspects of pet care, including feeding, training, medical issues, etc, and dealt with nearly all kinds of pets.

The second book was a big children's joke book, but it also had a section for inventions that "you wish existed" Mostly it was a joke/riddle book. But it had this chapter for crazy inventions.

If anyone can help me remember and/or find these books from the 1980's-1990's, I'd really appreciate it.

Bow Freaking BOWnanza!

Who said hair bows went out of style in the 80's?!?!?! The lil pink ones with skulls are my favorites. I decided that I'm keeping one pair of those for myself, cuz they are too adorable to pass up. There's one more pair just like em though.

They're $10 total for a set of 2 and just one bow is $7.00 total within the U.S. Everywhere else please add $3. I accept paypal that is funded through your savings/checking account. I do not accept credit/debit card paypal. I also accept money orders, cashiers checks, personal checks, and well concealed cash.
