are you a goop?

L went to the Newberry Library last week for a conference, and brought me back this wonderful postcard of the cover illustration of Gelett Burgess’ marvelously nostalgic book Why be a Goop? I don’t think you can get the original anymore, but I’ve provided a link to a combined version, available at When I was a kid we had two Goop books, a yellow one that was the bad-mannered Goops (very dog-eared and beloved) and a blue one that was the well-mannered Goops (pristine and clean to this very day).
