Just sharing this FB post by Jill Morgan at Purple House Press. As many of you know, she has reprinted lots of OOP FIAR books, as well as many, many other childhood favorites that were long unavailable. Here is her post about a sale and a link to their new website! See her special note about a FIAR book, A Pair of Red Clogs.


Today is the day! The biggest sale in our 18-year history begins now, in celebration of our new website www.purplehousepress.com . Free shipping on orders of $50+ in the US and 20% off everything, except bargain books which are already a bargain at 60-75% off. Use coupon code “20percent” to get your discount.

Kick off your shoes, browse our stack of classics and stock up for the holidays or for reading aloud now with the family. Classics from Kate Seredy, Ralph Moody, Leonard Kessler, Miriam Young, Wende and Harry Devlin and many more. Preschool through young adult, we've got it all with over 75 books in print! Most were originally printed between the 1940s and 1990s.

If your order is close to $50 don't forget about our trimmed covers for $1 each. An alternative to buying prints, they'll add some cheery color to your schoolroom or children's walls. They're also great for arts and crafts projects. We've got tote bags, t-shirts and mugs on sale too in the Marketplace section of our site.

FIAR moms, if you want a copy of A Pair of Red Clogs in hardcover now is the time to buy it. We will run out of inventory soon and after that it will be available in paperback only starting in December or January. We've had it in print in hardcover for 16 years!

So take a look around, let us know what you think, we hope you love the new site as much as we do. If you encounter a problem please private message me here [Facebook] so we can resolve it asap. Thanks everyone for you support over the last 18 and a half years! <3

A small PS: at checkout it can be hard to see your shipping options at the bottom of the page. Please make sure to select free shipping if your order is $50+! If the choice shows up, then you qualify for it but you have to manually select it.
