Never Tease a WeaselParents' Magazine Press operated a children's mail-order book club in the sixties and seventies, and through this club's affordability and popularity sprang many a book that Baby Boomers fondly remember.  Some titles are so popular with Boomers-with-kids and Boomers-feeling-nostalgic, that they've become quite collectible.  So I've compiled a list of what I have in stock to trigger those memories of yours.

Binding is loosened but still sound. All endpapers and the last page of text have been doodled upon with...red colored pencil?  Cover edges are dog-eared.    Good+.  $15
