My first exposure to the Big-G

This book:
I must have signed this book out from library 100 times. My first Godzilla movie was Godzilla 1985 which I probably saw a few year after I read this book. It was full of pics and factoids (probably mostly incorrect) I remember reading about the King Kong vs. Godzilla double ending myth which I believed for years. Not sure how much I'd enjoy it now, but I'd love a copy just for sentimental value. It's my first memory of a character and series that has become an obsession. There was a whole series of monster movie books in the same orange cover, I loved them all but I loved Godzilla the most. Any one else remember these?


  1. That looks SUPER familiar. Do you have any other info about it? Publisher, etc?

  2. Nevermind, I not only found out, I found a site that has the entire thing scanned online:




    Yay Internet!

  3. Awesome find! I probably should have included more info in the post :) I found the picture by googling 'orange godzilla book'.

    I found copies on ebay and AbeBook for around $30, a little much to be spending on a kids book.
