The two of them, plus a cast of colorful characters, go on all sorts of adventures in the 100 Acre Woods. Thought there doesn't seem to be a book devoted to Jupiter, several volumes featured space travel (Through Space to Mars Lost on the Moon By Air Express to Venus...). It doesn't have a lot of illustrations, and the protagonist doesn't build multiple homes suited to the personalities/hobbies of his friends. CBBC adapted some of the books into a Live-Action TV show. He needs to warn Pharaoh to save his life, but will Pharaoh listen?

Beautifully illustrated, set during the Renaissance period, he is discovered by a Lady of the Court and brought before her to sing. The story is about a shy hedgehog in a large (possibly English) garden. Dunn, Marylois, The Man in the Box, 1968. In this one the mystery is not about exotic dangers, only a stowaway prize-winning dachshund (Pease also raised prize-winning dachshunds) on a trip from San Francisco to a show in New York - but still with plenty of mystery and danger.

Non-fantasy, I think, but there is a mystery involved. This was an easy book I had as a child, and it had a pale blue cover. The Fancy Nancy franchise is branching out into early chapter books. They were not old enough to drive a car legally, but were said to be just a few years younger than their nemesis Skinny Norris, who had a driver's license from a state where the required age for a license was younger.

I think the story was of the Scrooge variety, ie crotchety old man learns to love kind of things. In a matter of seconds this bobcat lost her family. Charles Keeping's running lion, prancing ox and snapping alligator add to the delight of this collection." (Children's Books of the Year 74, p.42) I posted both stumpers and here's the real answer to both: Magic Tales, retold by Adelaide Holl, 1964. Lord I am making a mess of this, just remember being 13 and laughing through that and through Are you there God, it's me Margaret.

Perfect for: Kids who like to read about real people. Other details I remember: it eats a cow out of a barn at night; it eats a camper after his fire goes out; and one policeman survives an encounter by giving into a sudden instinct to drop his gun and shine a flashlight on the thing that's chasing him in the dark, scaring it away with light. I have the '71 edition of Animal Stories which was renamed Animal Tales, but since it omitted the "The Bulldog and the Friendly Puppy," I had no idea that it was originally part of this volume.

When You Reach Me: Miranda and her best friend Sal can navigate their New York City home by the sixth grade. Do you have any idea what this book might be? Respectable illustrations add just the right amount of whimsy and fun while the text will surely provide entertainment and education to a wide range of new readers. Could this be Mio, My Son by Astrid Lindgren? If I remember correctly, their mother was a widow and their Uncle Bill was an agent for the government (British Isles?, Australia?) I believe there may have been more that one book about the same group of children and their uncle.

There is also another color illustration of a lady in a pink gown and hat being liftted out of water (or someplace) by an ugly giant or ogre. Marvin, an artistically talented beetle makes friends with James, a young boy. This is a book about English children who have a pet puffin that sounds like a parrot. I am positive that his name was Artie, and I am pretty sure about the title. Could be Blume's book, or it could also be The Long Secret (sequel to Harriet the Spy). Aunt Dottie left me her wonderful collection of these books along with her house, and when the Athena Public Library decided to do an exhibit on these classic children's books for National Library Week, I was thrilled.
