The Secret of the Melting Clocks
It's that most wonderful time of the month. The time when the Bookseller Blog starts posting its Top Ten Children's Books Sold On eBay In the Month of August. This month we've seen some pretty fancy wheeling dealing on the part of the Hardy Boys, some fairy tales, and (most intriguing to me) a version of Alice In Wonderland illustrated by Dali. I didn't even know this existed, and my library certainly doesn't own a copy. You can see The Pool of Tears to the left here. I knew that Dali had a hand in the Disney animated version of the Alice tales, but never that he'd had his work published in the book of the same name. Just think what he could have done with Oz.
