Re: your first paleon book was: well darn

Technically my first dinosaur book was the pamphlet in
the Prehistoric Playset I opened on Christmas Eve at
age six. IN my stocking the next morning was The
little Golden book of dinosaurs. How and Why Wonder
Book and that one drawn by Rod Ruth soon followed. I
have them all. Well, sept the pamphlet.

PS. Does anyone know any info on the artist for Little
Golden Book? I've looked on line but there isn't much
there. A bit of a mystery I think.
