I'm reading a book on old Folk Toys.

This friendly fellow is called "Saw Man".

Reading more of this old book on "American Folk Toys", I discover what horses used to look like.


Whoever owned this book before me, I hope you remembered your phone call.

This kid is furious that video games haven't been invented yet.

"Not even Atari? Ugh! I guess I'll just stand here and blow into this stupid whirlygig like an jerk, because there's apparently nothing else to do."

Sadly, the final few chapters of the book were illustrated competently enough that there are no hilariously bad pictures.

It's like the author got better at drawing as the book progressed. Which makes sense I suppose, but maybe he could have practiced a little BEFORE writing a book that depended on having lots of illustrations.

However, I just noticed that the author's name is "Dick Schnacke" which is a funny name, however it's pronounced.
