The Google Book

By Vincent Cartwright Vickers , 1913

Vincent Cartwright Vickers, son of the founder of Vickers Aerospace (as it is now, Vickers Armstrong as it was then). An economist, former director of the Bank of England and a Fellow of the Royal Zoological

The Google Book by Vincent Cartwright Vickers. was published in 1913. As the book’s passed into the public domain, Here is an online full text of it here, and here (pdf)

FAR! FAR away, the Google lives, in a land which only children can go to. It is a wonderful land of funny flowers, and birds, and hills of pure white heather.

The Google has a beautiful garden which is guarded night and day. All through the day he sleeps in a pool of water in the center of the garden; but when the night comes, he slowly crawls out of the pool and silently prowls around for food.

All the birds try to avoid the Google, because they don't like him and he frightens them; but some of them he can never catch, especially those with the red beaks. You can never see these birds anywhere except in Google land which is far far away, and only children can go there; and even they must be nearly – but not quite – asleep.

Now in this book you will find pictures of Google birds; some, though ugly, are very nice; others, though pretty, are very nasty. So, perhaps, really the pretty ones are ugly and the ugly ones pretty!

Who can tell?
