Click the arrow above to hear Larry Rakow talk about collecting Little Golden Books

Little Golden Books have been a part of most of our lives since their introduction in 1942. Their unprecedented success led to an entire galaxy of spin-offs (including Big and Giant Golden Books, Little Golden records, Golden Funtime Books, Disney Golden Books, Golden Wall Plaques, and much much more) and a new way for parents to introduce books into their homes. This 5th edition of the Wonderland 100 is devoted largely to Golden Books (in all their formats), but also features several African-American-related titles plus a terrific selection of original children's illustrator artwork. Dig in!

Welcome to the 5th edition of 100 Wonderful Books from Wonderland, an online catalog appearing several times annually offering a select variety of top-of-the-line items. With few exceptions, we offer only first editions (by which we mean first edition, first printings) in original dust jackets (if thus issued).

You can easily use a Search function to the bottom of each page. In addition to the Categories tab above, you can now search by title, author, illustrator, or key word. Simply type your request in the Search field and a list will automatically scroll below.

This is an easy site to navigate. Start by clicking 100 Books in the above menu to go straight to the current offerings. Click on any book to get a detailed description and chance to purchase. If you're interested in a particular sort of book, click on Categories in the menu bar to see only those. Find out more about us About Us, and check into our Blog for interesting errant thoughts and diversions (this edition's blog looks at the history and collection of Golden Books and provides several sources for further investigation). Questions? Contact Us provides a handy place for your queries.
