DESCRIPTION:“‘Oh boy! Oh boy! A free thing!’ said Harvey- who never misses a contest- is reading the paper he just found on the sidewalk.
‘What’s the free thing?’ asks his friend, Woody.
‘I don’t know. That part’s torn off. But I’m going to fill out this form and send it in anyway.
But when the big prize arrives, not even the Contest Kid can believe his eyes.” (from the back cover)

About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
