A lady asked my wife for help identifying the titles/authors of some books she loved in her childhood. She remembers reading them in the 1960s when she was about 6 years old, but the books were subsequently lost in a home fire. As an adult she would like to reread the books.
"One book is about a little girl who goes to a nearby carnival and steals the little dancing ballerina on a music box and takes it home. She begins to feel guilty and returns it. The most memorable part of this book is the illustrations; it had beautiful colored pencil illustrations.I know the readership of this blog is replete with bibliophiles and especially with librarians. Can anyone harvest their knowledge base to help this lady?
The second book was read to students in class and all the person recalls about the plot is that one of the characters could turn invisible and was up in a tree some of the time."
Third book: A giraffe misses its little girl so runs to find her school. On the way there, she stops to help a woman whose clothesline has fallen...by holding it up with her head."
