Two children a boy and an older girl live in a wealthy estate with a large checkered lawn. They both like to play on the lawn with a red ball I can't remember how they get the ball. They're both warned never to go through the hedge. A grey dwarf like man is involved somehow. The red ball eventually gets thrown accidentally through a hole in the hedge, and the boy climbs after and is abducted by the grey man, who turns him to stone and puts him in his tower which is full of 99 other stone children.
The girl goes on a quest, visiting the sky queen and the ground king, who both ask her to do some kind of task before giving her something in return. She spends the night in the woods, having gathered firewood during the day, within a protective circle with a fire.
The grey man tries to tempt her out. I can't remember if she resists or not.

Somehow she defeats the grey man and all the children are turned back to normal. This wonderful story was first published in the St.
Nicholas magazine in We have both versions in stock and I would be happy to send you a jpg if you think this is the one. I can't remember what the book was called or who it was by but it was a children's book about to young girls under the age of five that end up walking to the park from their house without their mother knowing. I had it read to me in the early 90s.
Though I have a feeling it might not have had text possibly just pictures. The story is based around a young boy who comes into possession of a number of animals like tiger, camel, yak etc. Rather than keep them he embarks on a journey to return each of the animals to its country of origin. During the story he also describes some of the culture of the country. If you have any idea on the title of the book i would be most appreciative. One of my friends is looking for a book from his childhood.
It's about a boy who uses shoe boxes to build homes for animals in the forest to protect them from a storm. That's all he remembers.
Michela travels through space with her people on an Alliance spaceship commanded by her mother. Choo Choo! March 13, at pm. Thank you for writing on the topic. This is a hilarious story of dead fish, gorillas with bananas in their ears, poetry, cunning plans and highly legal documents kind of. Text and illustrations are bright and bouncy as ever and this will bring a smile to the face of the tiredest adult, while where young readers are concerned, this series is simply pantastic.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My mum was telling me about a book she wanted as a girl. She had read a book called Mouse, and badly wanted Older Mouse and never got it. She's 80 now, and I'd love to find it for her. I'm afraid I don't have any other details, but here's hoping!
This teenage girl decides to babysit this bad kid that everyone warns her about-the kid likes to bite I beleive it was a story that was combined with several other short stories I remember a book from the late 80's 's about a girl who is not supposed to go into the forest but goes further and further to get the pretty flowers. She keeps saying she will only get a few more but the further she goes the prettier they get.
Finally she has to run home because the monster in the woods chased her home, like her mother warned her about. I always loved and once memorized this book. The copy I have lacks cover and first few pages. It must have come from a 'dime store', or grocery rack, and started out: "Poppy was a fairy, a four inch fairy who lost her way in the world of people.
She did not know how she got there, but she awakened one morning in the toe of a slipper". It was read to me, then I read and reread this, read it to each child I baby sat with and to the campers where I was counselor, and my children. I found an abreviated copy in the 's which was a poor substitute for it.
Mine came from the early 's. This would be a dream come true to find it again. There are some on abe from , the edition we have had, but the first edition seems to be scarce. The early ones are expensive, but you could probably get one for less eventually on ebay.
Leave a want. Perhaps you could purchase a very beat up one with the front intact and combine the two books. I am looking for a children's bookI think it is called "The Big Fish". It is about a boy and his father and something about canoeing. An illustration I remember in the book is the father and the boy carrying the canoe over their heads. It has a picture on every or almost every page and everything is in black and white.
I cannot find it anywhere on any search engine. The book was a compilation of stories. I remember I loved the illustrations in this book, particularly this story. If ou have any suggestions, that would be fantastic. Not sure when the book was published, but was before the 90s. Very short book. Only part I remember is a quote "when God made dogs, He made dogs. I remember a book I had in the 60's that looked like Barbie and she shrunk down and had to find a frog to help her.
It was a large picture book. I only remember bits and pieces of the pictures.
I remember her shrinking and her clothes being too big and then of her meeting a toad. Woul dappreciate any help been trying to remember it for years. This book was a large hard covered book that was well illistrated with a lot of short stories aboutbgiants and woodcuts out witting the bad giant etc.. Early 's at school, 3 or 4 book series about a Futuristic Industrial tyrannical World where the equivalent of 'Gladiators' fought to the death in arena's.
I think in groups of upto 3 or 4, might have been solo. I think the lead character Vado, Varga, Vardo something like this wishes to be more, escapes etc. That or he was simply proud of his winning to better improve the faction he was loyal to. Books where 7x5inch soft back, very colorful with one I think having a Grilled Masked type figure holding his gauntleted hand with spikes up.
I posted below, it's a coming of age story about a teenager who works for some place on the beach and lives behind or near an abandoned Carasouel his Uncle or father left him. He is an orpahn and one night this young girl goes swimming in the ocean and he saves her from drowning. He doesn't think much of her but the two build a bond as the book goes on. The girl is supposed to be really skinny and he describes her as ugly and not his type. She is broken like him, and has nightmares. It's a hard book to find, because I read it back in the late 90's it was a young adult fiction.
It had a carasouel with horses on the front cover, I just don't remember the name or authoer.
