  1. Hello!
    I have finally solved my stump the bookseller query!
    P476 was solved today by a google search about kids on a picnic with queen ann’s lace. The book is The Ditch Picnic by Edith Unnerstad.

  2. RE G644, could this be from one of the Fripsey books by Madye Lee Chastain. I remember there was a progressive dinner in one of the books. I don’t remember which one, but I know I thought it sounded like a lot of fun. Marcy is the name of the main character in this series of book that were written in the 1950’s.

  3. Hi, I came across your website while trying to find a book I read when I was about 12 years old. Trouble is, I’m in England and I see you are in the USA. Can you find books published in England on your Stump the Bookseller site? I don’t think we have anything similar over here!
    Thanks

  4. I remember this book from my elementary school – early 1970’s – there were a lot of different stories in it, but the one I remember is about a boy who goes searching for a missing girl and goes on a wild adventure where there are talking flowers and a lioness or tigress that goes with him and it ends up that the animal is actually the girl he is looking for. Any help as to the name of the book or the story would be very much appreciated.

  5. Saw a book at a used book sale about a bee who starts a chain of events by stinging a farm animal who runs away causing havock. I think the title was buzz buzz. Couldn’t find it on Amazon.
