MUTTS Little Big Book!

Post by fiffur on Tue Aug 16, 2011 11:58 am

Just saw this item on Ebay! Very rare indeed. Price is steep, but if you want to see what it looks like:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Mutts-Little-Big-Book-/330590687322?pt=US_Nonfiction_Book&hash=item4cf8bd905a It's listed as The Mutts: Little Big Book

Actually, I think they wanted $100 for it a few weeks ago. Much too rich for my blood.

i remember somebody else wanting a crazy amount of something years ago....was it a mutts book? i can't remember but it was something that should be sold for maybe $20 but they wanted $100 for it.
Sorry...as cool as it would be to have sokething like this its not worth nearly a week's wages for it!
they really do need to reprint this book....bet they could sell enough to make it through their while!

When I see it listed for prices like that, it makes me even more glad I bought mine when it was first out! I had no idea it would become such a rare collector's item. Even Patrick hadn't seen one when I had him autograph it for me a couple years ago at the book signing.

years ago at the first signing i went to (with LK and one of my P&T friends and her husband (one of the old Doctor Who novelists:) ...i didn't know this until years after i knew them:) )...was there anyone else there? I think theaterdiva (I think that was her name...theater something from the old old waaay back board)...well, somebody had the little big book there. i'd never even heard of it at that time.
its one of those things i'd like to have but i'm not going to beat myself over the head because i don't have it.

I wonder if someone found a cache of them somewhere.
I remember years ago i was at a flea market type thing in Vermont and I came across a whole box of a book by Nadre Norton (not one of her SF or fantasy books) that had been out of print for years and was very hard to find. Someone had come across a whole box of them . i bough several of them for friends who also liked Norton. In retrospect i should have bought the whole box as they were ony 25 cents each.

Looks maybe they did, or inherited them from somebody. There's yet another one, very pricey, being sold for charity.

There's a copy for sale on Ebay for $25.43 with free shipping. It's in "acceptable" condition so not like it's new or anthing but if somebody wanted it just to read it it would be okay.

I saw that. I was tempted, but I'm really trying not to accumulate more "stuff."

It is a very small book, not much room taken at all. Not as small as the Mutts in a Can.......

Well, I did it. I bid on a signed Mutts Little Big Book on eBay. The description called it "near mint" so I decided to place a bid. The bidding went up to $30 and some change and I got it! Hopefully it really is in good condition!

CONGRATS! I think you'll see why it's such a nice little book. Very cute and as you found out extremely hard to get no matter the price.

Did you get yours yet Bobcat? I know we'd all like to know what you think of it after you've read it.

It arrived today - and it's so tiny!!! It's in very good shape and is indeed signed by Patrick. There are a couple of eentsy weentsy creases in the signature page, but nothing serious. Very cute book.

You could get the one for $7.57 Flower.....and have Patrick sign it for you at the next booksigning you can get to.

I wish they'd reprint it too.

I had Patrick sign my copy at Comic Con a few months ago, and he did a drawing in it too, also

He put a little drawing in mine too when I went to that one booksigning. He hadn't seen one of them ever that he could remember.
