Related Publications Ola A classic that sparked the illustrious careers of two Caldecott-honored authors and illustrators. Much of the book has to do with preparing for Christmas in rural England. I've been trying to remember this book for years! My kids read it when they were small, so it must be at least 15 years old now.
It was about baby animals who were having a sleepover, and there were all different beds which the animals were tucked into. The animals were made of card and slotted into the beds. It looked hand illustrated and was largely pastel colours. If anyone remembers this I'd be so grateful! I'd love to get it for my god child's third birthday!! I used to love these books when I was a kid. It was a series of chapter books about a pair of frogs they may have been mice, but I'm pretty sure that they were frogs, though not positive and their adventures in the forest.
In one book, a raccoon antagonizes them, but soon they befriend him and he ends up saving them from a flock of herons, and in another book,they wander into a den of weasels one of them was fairly fat! I remember a scene in the book where all the weasels are sitting at the table, eating and saying their names presumably so the reader could tell them apart ; I do remember that two of them were named Frieda and Fritz. There may have been other books in this series, but regrettably, I don't remember them all.
I'd thought for a while that these might have been a spin-off of Arnold Lobel's ever-popular Frog and Toad series, but I looked up Arnold Lobel's books on Amazon. Any information would be much appreciated.
Prince of Fire (Children of the Sun, #2) by Linda Winstead Jones
They were also given some sort of magical bag with strings that rested between their shoulders which allowed them the power of flight Would really like to remember the name of this book. It would've been in the early 70's when I read it and I remember it as a trade paperback. Kim - the book we are both remembering is 'the giant under the snow' by John Gordon - as soon as I read the description about finding an ancient buckle, it all fell into place.
It was published in - and yes, there is a green man and the bag with the wind for flying! Happy reading I remember reading this and loving it when I was about nine years old. I have also desperately trying to find out what it was but have had no luck at all. I think I must have read it in Junior School in about Strangely I remember exactly the same details as you - especially about the bag that strapped onto their backs and then the pull strings - and the green man.
I looked into the history and significance of all the chalk men carved into hillsides and have never quite been at ease with them since! I remembered the heroine's name was Jonquil - don't ask me why - and found it almost immediately. It is strange how we initially remembered exactly the same details - but I am certain this is the one. It has been reissued since its first publication in Someone told me it might be the Children of Green Knowe - and I remembered a song about 'Green Noah, evil tree, evil fingers cant catch me!
Its definitely the John Gordon book.

Children of the Sun
I'm looking for a book that my babysitter used to read to me when i was about 5 years old A girl named Kara asks everyone in her family if they'd play with her, but they're all too busy; she finds a big red blanket and plays with it, and then her whole family joins in. I have been trying to find this book for years. It was a book of fairy tales, but it had one story in paticular about a brother and sister from a poor family whose Mom sends them town with their last money to buy bread for dinner before Father comes home.
They pass a bakery and end up buying sweets. They are so upset by what they have done that they decide to run away from home. While resting under a tree a little mischievious green elf comes out from behind a tree and tells them stories of a place called candy land. He leads them to candy land where they fill them selves full of sweets but soon become home sick. I know it is only one story, in a book of Fairy tales. Any help finding it would be so appreciated! I'm trying to find a book I had for my daughter who was born in I think his name was a complicated one Boblobski , or something like that.
He was planning a dinner party for his friends at his home. I read a book when I was in 3rd or 4th grade I'm 23 now. I think the girls body was missing and she fell off of the side of the mountain when she was hiking. I just would really like to find the book so I can share it with my niece. If anyone knows anything I would really appreciate it! I'm looking for a Halloween book aroundish. Please help of u can. I think it might be an old Catholic school book. It contained stories and poems. One story was titled "The Wind Called Chinook. Ok, I don't remember the title or author, but this book was white on the outside with a lot of illustrations of teddy bears on the outside.
It had a bunch of stories and along with teddy bear stories there where also fairy tales, like the 12 dancing princesses. I wish I would tell you more. Even though there were a lot of stories it wasn't a physically big book, they made it a small size, but thick.

I read it around the 90's and would really appreciate any ideas, thanks! When I was a child in the early 60's my mom read this children's book called something like, "The boy that said no" or "the boy that always said no" This young boy with issues was walking down the street lost. A shopkeeper said, Are you lost? I've been looking everywhere for a book that I read as a child in the mid 90's '94 or ' It was about a Little girl and boy who i think were homeless orphans, or runaway children, in London.
I can't remember much other than it had something to do with fire I think??? I think they were trying to get away from a horrible man. For some reason i remember a bit about the girl receiving or stealing a small warm bread bun. What really sticks in my head is the illustration on the front cover, and I believe there were some throughout the book too. The front cover has the picture of a little girl with red hair and possible a red coat something red! I would really appreciate it if someone could help me find this book!
I know there's not a lot to go on though! I finally found the book! Skip to Main Content Area. Old Children's Books. More Tips for Searchers. No Luck? Check here daily.
