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!
As a child, my wife had a book from her father (1950s+/- publication date), about a doll she loses after taking it for a bath, going on a carriage ride, having a tea party, etc. The girl’s father arrives home and goes back out into the night to look for the doll and eventually finds her and brings her home, somewhat tattered. Can you please help?
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!
I'm looking for a children's book I had in the mid-1950's about a little boy with a frown. If I remember correctly, it became frozen on his face.
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.
Hi! I’m searching for details about a book from the early 50’s that had a story “Poor Lizbeth Jane” in it. I’ve been told it’s in The How and Why Program: History. I’ve been unable to find more information than that. Thanks!
Seeking child's book from the 1950's. Tall & narrow with a cut-out top. She's Pitta Pat the tabby cat, the cat who couldn't remember. She chews her soup and drinks her bread and sleeps in the bathtub instead of the bed. She's Pitta Pat the tabby cat, the cat who couldn't remember.
I am looking for a children’s book from the 1940’s to early 50’s about a Navajo Indian girl who goes into the desert with her donkey to find something—a puppy? Gorgeous illustrations.
