All books are hard cover (Even though the site says Soft Cover) and the Baseball hats are officially SOLD OUT! May have some T-Shirts soon in my ETSY shop!   

All of our books are Hard Covers, even though the site says Soft Cover.   We decided just to pay the extra money and keep hard covers in-stock.   Our Baseball caps are all sold out (If you order on the site, it will just be refunded)!    Easily, one of our most popular items!   I may have new Rankin/Bass logo T-shirts soon in my ETSY Store!  With Wes' untimely passing, we may not have a BLACK FRIDAY sale this year.   I may post items in my ETSY store for Black Friday at a discount here and there, so keep an eye out on ETSY.

Our most popular book right now!

We set Attendance records for an entire weekend in 2007 at the Brookfield Zoo's Holiday Magic! Remember this Kevin Kriess? This was so much fun! I did book signings in the day at Border's in Schaumburg and then the ZOO at night! I remember the ZOO driving us with Josh on one of their carts and the Lion roaring super loud! Lions seem to be more active in the Winter weather. The book signing line extended the entire tent.
