The dog is tan, not red, so not Clifford. Don't recall any human character being included in the story. 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.
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. A beautiful book but since Barbara Cooney was famous by the time it was written and many copies were published, not very expensive. The Yankees performance against the Tigers in the ALCS reminded me of a short ghost story I read as a child in which a baseball team showed up at a game but did not swing at one pitch all game, struck out looking 27 times and it was later reported that their team bus had an accident on a bridge and fell through the barrier and fell into the waters below killing everyone on board.
Sandra Boynton Books Introduction
I thought this story was contained in Strange But True Baseball Stories, but realized that was silly! I think it was a short compilation of children's ghost stories published in the '60's or '70's most likely. I read this book out of my school library in or All I can remember is the main character, a girl wants to go see her teacher.
She has to take her siblings with her and they take a train that I believe was actually a subway. The teacher is surprised to see them but they end up having a nice visit all the same.
The book was a hard cover. Sorry I don't remember anything else about the story. Hope someone can help. This story was within a Reader for approx grade 3 or 4. In the story a girl falls into a well and the leaves are turned to gold coins. The sisters follow her but they are tarred and feathered. I am looking for a Halloween book fom the late 70's or 80's. I don't fully remember the story but I think it had something to do with a girl or a witch who stole Halloween candy but had a happy ending of course. I know it's not much to work with, but if you can help, I would appreciate it!
On the cover, she is sitting on a big pile of all the candy she stole not a roof. But it has a happhy ending! At some point in the book they build a giant mechanical robot lion for protection which ends up eating them. My parents gave me this book for my eighth birthday.
Looking for a Childhood Book? Here's How.
It was about a boy who was so small, he could fit into a matchbox. His parents were also very small and got blown off the Eifell Tower when he was a baby. He ended up being raised by the director of a travelling circus and sleeping in a matchbox. At some point, the director allows him to be a part of a circus act where he calls people up on stage and the little boy steals all their valuables without them knowing - he then gets revealed to the audience and becomes internationally famous.
I remember there were parts where some bookmaker makes him books the size of postage stamps. He also tries to find a girl his size but is unsuccessful. I originally read this book in Russian, though I'm not sure it was by a Russian author, as my parents often gave me books by Swedish, Danish, Italian and English writers.
I don't remember how it ends. I loved this book and would really appreciate any help finding it! Thanks for your help! I think this is the same book that i inherited when i was a child, i believe it is "the little man" by erich kastner. I'm looking for a collection of books that my Gran used to read to me as a kid in the early to mid 90's.
They were picture books, with cardboard covers and paper pages. I remember them being very colorful. The people were drawn tall with lanky arms and rosy cheeks. They could have been published anywhere from the 70's to the early 90's. Sadly, I have no clue what either of those were. There were several books with individual stories - the books weren't connected to each other in any way as far as the actual stories were concerned.

The illustrations are so perfect for Halloween. It was a look inside Monster Town that was supposed to feel like a insider look but It felt like an introduction to a really good story, but we never got the story. They will eat wheels and tractors, they will not eat broccoli. It was fun way of opening up a talk about what foods we like and why trying new things is a good thing. Hazel is a horrible monster but all her family is so busy oohing and awing about how horrid her baby brother is no one notices her.
This is a cute story about siblings but these siblings are competing to be the very worst monster! Cute book! His attempts to scare people only elicits giggles. Then Leonardo has a idea.
