2:03 am - Goosebumps Series, R.L. Stine

aimmyarrowshigh
I've had a few requests for this series...

I could only find REALLY low-grade scans (and never owned this series myself -- I was a TOTAL chicken as a kid and these gave me INCREDIBLE nightmares! -- so I can't do my own scans this time T_T) but I did try to include the most iconic/the stupidest titles and taglines. :) Enjoy!

someoldmemories  I'm trying to find what I remember as a paperback book from the early 80's and it was about a family of "creatures" that could shape themselves into any shape.  They had to move and were building a new house for themselves and one creature build a room with weights and another one with books and a fish tank and I think there were four or five of these "creatures" in this family.  
If anyone has any suggestions ~ I would greatly appreciate it.

someoldmemories  I'm looking for a favorite book I remember from my childhood.  It would have been early 80's and it taught the days of the week.  But it was mainly for little girls because each little girl that represented a different day of the week wore a different "frilly" dress to express that day of the week.  Or maybe it was months of the year.  But I distinctly remember the little girls and different dresses.  
If anyone can help with any suggestions I would be great full!!

10:21 pm - Peanut Butter Sandwhich Monster book?
klb6y I had a series of books around 1990 that were about a little boy who heard scary noises and set mouse traps that had peanut butter (and jelly?) sandwiches on them to catch the monster. He eventually does catch the monster, who really likes these sandwiches, and they become friends. I can not find the name of this book anywhere, nor can I find my old copies. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I've made a stamping community for Tove Janssons Moomin books; [info]moomin_stamp
Feel free to check it out and post an application :) It's not necessary that you have read the books, because I've made character bios to all of the characters.

current mood: good

I've been trying to figure out the title/author of this book I checked out of my elementary school's library about five times. I remember it being about a young girl (possibly an orphan...actually, *probably* an orphan) who finds this cottage in a forrest on the other side of a big stone wall at the edge of her orphanage's land. The detail I remember about this cottage was that there were tons of sea shells in it. If anyone could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

10:27 pm - candy man?

selbian
even the internet, with its vast resources, couldn't show me the way. at least, not easily.

i've been so frustrated over finding a rather eerie children's book about a candy man who had a friendly, peppermint-smelling mask to hide the fact that he was decaying underneath. i think he attempted to lure away a boy, but the boy's sister eventually figured out that the candy man was not to be trusted.

the illustrations in the book were fantastic and tim-burton/lane-smith-esque, if that helps in any way.

i would be greatly indebted to anyone who knows the title of this story. thank you!

ok I'm remembering a part of a book an illustrated childrens book from at least 17 years ago quite possibly longer. The detail I remember is a long leather train ticket which was colorful and quite possibly illustrated with the places it would take you.

I feel like maybe it was covered once by reading rainbow.

Thanks for any help.

Hey.   I'm looking for a book about a giraffe in a zoo.  I am sorry, I don't have many details, only those of my childhood memory.  I remember the cover was orange.  I think the giraffe is ashamed of his height.  He then uses his height to find a missing animal in the zoo, I believe.  I'm pretty sure it's a hardback "I can read" book.

12:26 pm - Giant peanut butter sandwich

elemmennope
I am looking for a book that I friend and I both remember from our childhood. We were born in the mid 70s so the publication date would be in the early 80s or before.

The book was a silly children's story with illustrations and it involves the construction of a giant peanut butter and jelly sandwich, so big that we think there we remember a scene with a helicopter lifting a slice of bread.

Some initial google searching has only come up with a book by Nadine Wescott called Peanut Butter and Jelly and making a sandwich as big as a table with help from elephants. Based on the descriptions, that is not the book I'm thinking of. I don't remember any of the text, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't written in rhyme as Wescott's book is.

Edit: 
Book identified as The Giant Jam Sandwich by John Vernon Lord in one of the communities where I cross-posted. Thanks.

1:45 pm - Madeline

fairy_glamour
I'm not sure if this is allowed, so I apologize but feel free to remove!
But I figured I'd find some children at heart here who might be interested. I discovered yesterday that Madeline had no LJ community dedicated to her, so if you are a fan (as I still am!) come and join oldhouseinparis.

Besides that, how many others here still love Madeline? She's my hero! I grew up with the books, dolls, and those silly cartoons as well.

Hi,

I wondered if anyone could help me with the name of a series of books I used to read when I was at primary school in the UK (under 11).

All I can really remember is that it features a boy who I think always ends up coming out of a painting of a ship into an alternate world where he always meets the same groups of people. For some reason they always reminded me of the Narnia books and I think one of the books might have had Solomon in the title.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Louise

4:18 pm - Does anyone recognise this Crusader book please?

hampden
Children's book (read in UK) about two young Crusaders in the time of Saladin. One, was born in Outremer - Philip? and the other Gilbert, was a Frank who went out there. It ended with the Saracens defeating the Crusaders and the two returned to Kidwelly, Wales? Many thanks!

11:57 pm - Looking for a book title

cheesecakerocks
Hi, one of my friends is seeking the title of a book from her childhood. I've included her description of the book below. Does anyone recognize it? Thanks so much!

"There was a book I had when I was a kid, a children's book about the Jewish holidays. I remember the shape of it, the feel, the smell. I think the cover colors were black, gold and orange. It was organized as a series of chapters that followed a young brother and sister named Gita and Jerry through the year, and as each holiday came around the reader would learn along with them about the traditions and the backstories"
