Looking for a 1960s or 1970s Children's picture book. Boy and his parents celebrate Christmas. Father may be a lumberjack but forest life involved.
Looking for a children’s/teen book from when my mom was growing up (1955-1970ish) called Queer Company. I don’t know a lot about the story except it’s about restoring someone or something. Really looking to at least find out the author. Thanks!
I am looking for a 1960-1980 era book, about a girl with amnesia that ends up working on a horse farm, buys a horse from going to slaughter, and then discovers she used to be rich and jumped show horses. Her step parent [I want to say father] ended up being the culprit. The point of view was from the girl, and I want to say the book starts with a car accident, which causes the amnesia.
A Blob crawls out of ocean and eventually evolves into a human, chanting “Uggity muggity moon, uggity muggity June. . . “, or something like that. Possibly from the 60’s. Maybe a red cover? Children’s book. Possibly called “The Blob”?
I’m looking for a book about a pig (or some animal, but I am pretty sure it was a pig) who goes on adventures. The books were a series, and were all fold-out books, with illustrations only, no text. The books were wider than they were tall, to accommodate the fold-out pages, which were flaps that unfolded to the right. One that I remember involved the pig going camping and getting rained on. I read them in the early ’80s, so I imagine they were published in the ’60s or ’70s.
This young adult book from the 1960s or 1970s was set in the Southwest, maybe Arizona or New Mexico. A girl's parents have divorced so she is sent to live with her father, I think. The song "For everything, turn, turn, turn, there is a season, turn, turn, turn" is featured in the story somehow. Some of the characters in the story are Native American but I'm not sure whether the girl and her father are, or not.
I am looking for a book that was probably written in the 1950s or early 1960s. It was a part of my grade school library, a school that converted from a K-12 school to a K-8 in 1965 or so. The book might have been written as a young adult novel. It was about a teenage girl and her dealing with high school life (boyfriends, homework, mean girls). I do remember that one chapter was titled “The Kangaroo Court”. I do not remember the very much more about the book, but “Pink” comes to mind – either part of the title or another chapter. I hope this jogs someone’s memory!
A Little Golden Book (or similar style) about a young island (Polynesian?) girl. A ship's captain visiting her village gifts her with a porcelain doll. She tries to play with it as she had her own doll, but found that she couldn't get it wet, or feed it sand cakes, etc. It was a book my grandmother had, but I'm pretty sure it's not a vintage book - probably no older than the 1960's (but that's 10 year old me remembering. ) Still, I don't remember the graphics being older looking. It was the size, shape and length of a Golden Book.
