SOME SUGGESTIVE KIDS' BOOKS
I always look for vintage kid's books in thrift stores, especially old library volumes from the 1950s-1970s, with those great durable vinyl-like library covers, invariably stamped inside "DISCARD" like they went bad, or something. I drool for titles like Our Trip to the Police Station, Where Things Come From, You Will Go To The Moon, and my all time favorite Art Linkletter presents The Straight Dope on Drugs, which features the most bewildering (and even horrific) images of LSD trips and teenagers OD-ing. I'll post some of my best finds another time.
If you read my first post then you know I'm unforgivably short on space, so unless it's an essential kids' book I'll pass it up. But since I've been doing the photo-documentary thing lately, I've included snapping pics of kids' books with (unintentionally?) suggestive titles. Maybe it's just me, sicko that I am, but these titles seem to psycho-sexually hint at a brave new world just around the corner for the 9-12 demographic. Of course, these are from a bygone era, long before the internet replaced the well placed innuendo.
Doesn't this just scream, "I'll show your mine, if you show me yours"? Yes, I'm a prevert, but come on!
Same theme as The Hidden Cave, but seems to be a bit more suggestive of fun and adventure here. And while I'm being sick, it's really not that specific about what kind of tunnel is so magic, I mean that is a dude pirate on the cover, right?
This one's just too obvious. I wonder if this was discarded because some librarian was just to embarrassed to let it get checked out.
Finally, this book seems to suggest an inappropriate path for one's budding sensations. My advice is that if you see Eddie, keep him the hell away from your dog.
