Children’s Chapter Book, 4-Book Series, 1 for Each Season (Around late 80’s). These books may have also had a boy and a dog. There were frequent pictures along with the words. My guess is that the length of the books were around 30-40 pages. I can’t recall anything else. Thanks for your help!
2 boys, best friends, who live next door to one another, communicate with one another at or near bed time by writing messages on window shades and shining their flashlights up onto the shade. One of the boys may have been named Andrew. Early chapter book and it was a small series of books. The last one our teacher read to us, one of the boys was moving away at the end. This was read to my class in the 2nd grade (1989-1990), don’t know if it was newly published or something the teacher had been reading to her classes for some time.
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.
I don’t know the title of the book, that’s what I am seeking. It is a series book (Bobbsey Twins? Nancy Drew?) and the mystery involves the theft? Copying? of unique designs a jewelry maker obtains by capturing individual snowflakes on a pane of cold glass.
I think the setting is a winter lodge of some sort where the sleuths are vacationing.
I remember an excerpt of a novel for teens, reprinted in some English literature compilation under what I think was the title “The Contessa and Me” but that was not the title of the book it came from. A teen is at a hotel that her possibly British or American parents run on the French Riviera. She befriends a Contessa there. There is a scene where she cleans up after a party where I believe the Contessa had too much champagne to drink. It’s kind of a coming of age story. The excerpt was one part of the book which I think was divided into three parts total or possibly was a series of short stories on the same characters. At one time I read the other two parts somehow but don’t recall the overall name or author.
Seeking a fantasy series from the 80s/90s. In the series was an inept wizard who carried a satchel full of rune sticks leftover by a long lost race called the Rebus/Rhebus/Rhybus (I'm not 100% sure of the spelling). The wizard often failed because he had trouble decoding the rune sticks. Eventually his satchel caught fire and he lost them all. The enemies in the books were somehow made of ice and wary of sunlight - I think they were dark elves. When killed, they would degrade into a puddle of dirty water. In one of the books was a character who flew around inside a cavern while wearing an old-fashioned helmet with a hinged visor. He could blast fire from his eyes and regularly chuckled while firing at the trolls below. Any help finding this series would be much appreciated.
I have been searching for a book(s) written during/after WW 2.
Main character: Kandy Cane/Kandy Kane
Boy friend: I believe was Peter
Author: I think started with an L(an). The books were in the middle of the stacks.
It was a series – followed a group of kids through young adult hood.
