Probably the easiest place for an individual to sell books like those above is on Amazon. Look up your book, click on the picture, then look in the blue box for "Have one to sell? If, and only if, Amazon has listed the book in the past, will you be able to list also. Ebay is also very easy and inexpensive to use for a few books and it allows you more room to describe the books.
For pricing your book, it is easier and more accurate to use the Abebooks. Then double check on Amazon because prices there are sometimes higher. Amazon's Search is really not set up for out of print books. The more care you put into describing your books, the more likely you are to sell them. We do not purchase books online, sight unseen.

No sales offers, please. Many, many thanks to all the wonderful readers who help to ID these books! We also appreciate those who take the time to thank the contributors for researching their books. Thank you for writing back. I'm very familiar with the book, but I wouldn't have guessed it because what sticks in my mind is the great black dog who led them to the old gentleman's house. Everyone seems to remember books differently! It was also published in hardback. I am really quite fuzzy on the details but I am looking for a book I read when I was about 9.
It was a horror book and I am thinking the girls name was penny graves? She dies and a girl moves b them thAt looks just like her but she is evil and she gets hit by a truck after leaving a funeral or something and at the end she is reborn when this lady has a baby. The book was black and had a coffin on the front with a hand sticking out of it wearing a pink nightgown.
I don't know the name of the book, but by the cover description it sounds very much like the Point Horror series, so might be worth searching for cover images of them to see if any ring a bell! I recently remembered two books that I had as a child, 'The Giant's Toys' and 'the blue banana'.

They are listed on Amazon but are unavailable, as they were published in , by Hamlyn Robin. I would love to get copies of these, or in fact any of the 10 books from that particular series, have been looking all over the net! They currently don't have the series, just different Puffin joke books and a translated one. However, you can leave a Want and abebooks will notify you when the book is listed. I'd like to find the name of a pop-up book, I believe published in the 's, about a boy who wants to make snow. I believe my parents bought the book through Scholastic.
All I remember is that an orphan boy ran away from a maltreating relative , found an abandoned house that was still furnished on the inside. Found a stray dog that became his best friend.

At one point, he had a splash in a water barrel outside and in it, he found a baby someone was trying to get rid off. He started to cater for his little family, stealing bread for himself and the dog and milk for the baby.

He was found-out at the house and all three were separated. He was given a job in a circus that had a panther, he ran away and when he was worn out and about to give-up, he was discovered on the outside steps a nice old lady that clothed him and made him her errand boy.
I remember taking this book out of the library when I was a kid, it was was a collection of bizarre poems with equally bizarre pictures. There was a poem called, "The Whimpley-Whim", with a picture of this weepy-looking catlike creature "The woeful Whimpley-Whim has never been known to woo. If you looked like him, would you? Any information would be much appreciated.
Hi Kathy and Everyone, Kathy has a delightful blog Keeper of the Fun A fun blog about collecting and appreciating classic toys, cartoons, video games, movies and more. About 10 spams make it through my Mollom program every day. Sometimes it's hard to tell if the writer just isn't very bright or if it's spam, so I have to check the links, and I'm usually sorry. I monitor every comment. If you maintain a relevant blog or know of a good reference no sales please please put it in the body of your text so I can check it out with confidence!
Honestly, the author was someone I should have been familiar with, but I just couldn't think of the name. Thank you so much! I remember reading this book as a kid, it was about this conceited bear on the first page of the book, he's admiring himself in a mirror who lives in a house with his two friends, a fox, and I believe a squirrel though he may have been a mouse.
While I don't remember the circumstances exactly, I think that the fox and squirrel become too irritated with the bear and leave the house, but they soon miss their home, and, in turn, the bear re-examines his behaviour. Needless to say, there's a happy reunion at the end. Any information would be much appreciated! What i can tell you is that it was a children's book that had poems and i guess some of the traditional nursery rhymes like "rain rain go away". I was born in and i remember reading it before 2nd grade.
Please help me find the book!! I remember it being comforting when i read it. Not sure, but perhaps it's the orchard book of nursery rhymes, by faith jaques? I had a similar version when I was a kid, and it sounds very much like it.
This book was late 70s or early 80s. It was about a boy who's father would go to the shed every night and be working on a project. I remember the boy would see lights on but could never find out what his father was doing. Then, on the boys birthday his father unveiled the surprise - he has built him a train and some carriages.
He would then give his friends rides.

I remeber this book fondly and would really like to find a copy for my son for when he is old enough to enjoy the story as much as I did! Looking for a book about a child looking forward to a town parade. The child develops some illness that requires quarantine at home. The dog is tan, not red, so not Clifford. Don't recall any human character being included in the story.
Only one graphic is clearly remembered Can't remember any other of the plot line.
Looking for a Childhood Book? Here's How.
Don't think it was a series. HELP for personal mental health reasons. I'm looking for a book that was read to me when I was younger. I don't remember the title and I don't remember if it was a book on its own or a short story in a book. Now for the details: An important part as well, is that the creature could turn invisible and I remember in some of the illustration, all you could see was the ears and eyes and maybe the tail.
This creature lived in a broken tree probably in a forest not sure. McCullage, from the Tales from Puddle Lane series. The Griffle was a creature conjured up by a magician's magic dust, who befriends two kids, and they have fun together. I'm looking for a book about a girl that loves to read and is wealthy family with a summer home on the coast, her father is a builder and she recommends to him that since he is building houses that look all the same he should paint them different colors, they have a big sailboat, and the theme of the book is something along the lines of listening to what the waves say or reading the waves.
At the end when she is older she gets her fortune told and if I remember correctly she decides to become a writer. This could be it, a book by Barbara Cooney about her mother's family, although her mother wanted to paint Cooney, of course was both an illustrator and a writer. She is free to play with this any time and played with it a LOT! So did her brothers! Another key aspect to our home preschool is books! I build in read alouds on her work trays, but far more of our reading is done during free time, as she selects books from our theme shelves quite often! Crayons are in these from Ikea , the white ledge is this from Ikea.
It looks like we do a lot from the photos, but her school time only takes an hour or less per day! I am now working with her very first thing in the morning, which she enjoys. The rest of her day is spent learning through free play, and just being with us! This Arctic Animal Fun Pack features several free printable activities for kids. Crossword, word search, shadow matching and more. Polar bears, penguins, reindeer and more included! The content including photos within this blog are not to be used without my permission. You ARE allowed to pin photos on Pinterest with a link back to the post.
This was exciting and so much fun! I modeled how to knit the mitten and kind of just let them go on their own with it and a lot of my kiddos did better knitting than I did!! Then we cut out pictures of the animals from the story, 'The Mitten'. We used the animal pictures and the mitten that we knitted to act out subtraction equations.
They looked at the first number in the subtraction equation and placed that many animals in front of them. Then they looked at the second number in the subtraction equation and placed that many animals in the mitten. Last, they counted how many animals were left for their answer. We also worked more on positional words in a mini reader. We read the sentence and determined the position of the mitten. I had my students highlight the correct positional word to make the sentence complete.
We finished the last page in our 'Mitten Story Elements Books' by writing about our favorite part of the story. I read the story, 'The Mitten' by Alvin Tresselt. We really enjoyed reading this story and finding all of the similarities and differences of the two stories that we read. We did a mitten Venn diagram to compare the two stories. We picked which animal was our favorite from either story.
We sorted our favorite animals and turned it into a class graph. I had my students write about which animal was their favorite and why that animal was their favorite. It is so exciting seeing them write and extend their sentences! What a busy and fun week we had! If you missed the link above to see our th day of school in action, you can click HERE.
