"Ugly Eliza and the Sunken Ship" new children's book!
Hey everyone,

My name is Brian Gibson, and I am the author and illustrator of the new book, "Ugly Eliza and the Sunken Ship".

If you- or anyone you know has little kids, I would reccomend picking up a copy. My main character, the ugly, but oh-so-cute "Ugly Eliza" will give them the complete 411 on how salt REALLY got into the ocean. You'll never guess in a million years how, I bet you three toes.

You can order your copy at amazon.com.

Parents: As a writer for your kids, I value your feedback the most. I enjoy hearing from you. I also like to talk and network with other writers. For more information, visit my user-info page or my myspace- www.myspace.com/officialuglyeliza

THANKS for your continuted support!

-Brian Gibson

looking for a book
this has been driving me crazy for a while now. There was a book I read as a kid in the late 80s Im gonna do my best to describe it to you.

It was about this inspector guy (I think he was an otter) and his niece and nephew (or kids, I cant remember)

it was basically a series of books that labeled everything on the pages. the one I read was about a sunken treasure. the two pages I remember most was one in like a bait and tackle shop. On this page it had things labeled like a fishing net, compass, fishing poles etc. on another they were sailing through rough seas and there were alot of whales, like a narwhal, blue whale, flying fish, etc.. again everything was identified with a word right next to it.

anyway I hope thats clear enough, I might try to see if my grandfather might still have it but I doubt it, hopefully someone knows what Im talking about, I cant find anything on it on google.

Kids Literati
Hello! I want to let you all know about my children's lit blog called Kids Literati where I review my favorite children's books. I grew up as the daughter of a storyteller, and my mother also owned a children's bookstore when I was a kid. I love books and love blogging about books.

I am looking for a relatively unknown English poet writing for children in a  manner of Milne, Lewis Caroll or even nursery rhymes (funny and non-straight) - I am going to translate him into Russian.

I'll be grateful if you can suggest any names, or, even better, some free Internet library where they can be found.

I just joined, and I joined in hopes that some of you may be able to help me or at least direct me to someone/where/thing that can.

I am in great need of finding an old old children's story series called, "Jaggers and Lupin in Candleland" or something to that effect. I am only 24 years old and this is a pursuit of something back in the 50s or there about. This was a series about an elf and a cat I believe and it was short stories released via a tea company as a promotional device. I wish could offer more, so I am hoping that perhaps there are older members here who may know that which I refer to, or people here with better resources than I.

Google has failed me and I know not where else to turn. Any paraphernalia that I could obtain in this matter would be a treasure more dear than any riches for it is a gift for someone I care for.

Thank you for any help any of you may be in advance.

Wick :: a Little Bit of Earth
Lovely comm here =) My contribution to you all is a Secret Garden website because I decided there are too few around. I simply adore the story, and the 1993 film adaption. The characters are rich and unforgettable - how Susan Moody got away with writing that terrible sequel is beyond me! Talk about wrecking precious childhood memories. And it actually says on the cover something along the lines of 'If you loved Mary, Dickon and Colin you should read this' O_o I haven't actually read it myself so I shouldn't really judge but I know more or less what happens to the characters and the reviews I have read are awful.

Anyway, if you have any suggestions for the site, feel free to rant away ;)

Do you know this book?
There is a specific book I read in the first grade (I'm 17 yrs. old) and LOVED...and want to identify:
It's about a kid (a boy) who goes on a treasure hunt (it's actually his birthday) and finds clues along the way...I remember pics of a water hose...and one clue was words that were backwards. In the end I think he has a note with "Happy Birthday" or a party. The book was probably from like the 60s or 70s ? There was a yellow cover. CAN ANYONE HELP IDENTIFY IT. What is the title/author????

Any extra info relating to it even if ur not sure of the title/author would also help. THANX!!! :D

Sylvia Long
I have always stopped myself from posting because it just seems like such a plug for a product, but I'm going to post this time because I think it's truly worth it. For any of you Sylvia Long fan's, and maybe even some fans-to-be, she has a darling new book coming out this spring called Waddle Waddle Quack Quack Quack- It's really cute. How do I know? Well, because she's my mother-in-law (thus the hesitation to post) But if any of you have read her Hush Little Baby, where she changes the words so that it's a sweet song about showing the child the natural world rather than worldy goods, you know she doesn't need any of my plugging. I think my favorite book of hers is her Mother Goose because it's just so FUN! There's an image carried over from wach page onto the next, so it becomes a game to spot what she carried over. A close second is Snug as a bug, but probably mostly because we decorated and painted our nursery with scenes out of it. Anyway, if you ever want to see more of her work, she has a website at www.sylvia-long.com , but you can find her books at any of the big bookstores. Enjoy!!

Hello all, joined a few days ago. I've just finished The Secret Garden for the umpteenth time and started on The Wind in the Willows. I have two ancient copies that have been read and loved and dreamed over almost to destruction. There was a television series based on the books; it ran for several years and the other day I found the words to the theme song.

This morning we went to the library. While there, we became enchanted by this book, Ignis, by Gina Wilson, a sweet dragon's tale of self-discovery...

The pictures, and some of the poetic langauge too, are just divine.

Category: Children
UK Publisher: Walker Books
UK Publication Date: 08/10/01

A powerful and moving tale of self-discovery, stunningly illustrated by a double Kate Greenaway Medallist. Ignis, the young dragon, lives at the foot of a steep mountain in a secret place called Dragonland. He has fiery red scales, flaring nostrils and magnificent wings. He can run the fastest and fly the highest. But Ignis is sad, for he has no fire. And a dragon without fire, he thinks, is not a real dragon at all. So one dawn Ignis sets off from his home in Dragonland on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery. Along the way, he feels a warmth stir deep inside him as he forges new and special friendships - especially with Cara, a real little girl. Together they share some wonderful times - swapping stories, frightening monsters, flying up past the stars... But at the end of it all, alone on top of the mountain, will Ignis find the spark he needs to be a really real dragon?
