They sound intriguing, Mavis. I'm familiar with only the Very Hungry Caterpillar, most of my children's books were mainly words, not so many picture story books 70-80 years ago. Some of my grandchildren's books come to mind, but titles escape my memory! 8-[

The books I remember from my childhood include Grimm's Fairy Tales, Milly Molly Mandy, Just William, A.A.Milne's Christopher Robin books, Ida Rentoule-Outhwaite's Australian Fairies, Seven Little Australians, Little Black Princess, We of the Never-never, Alice in Wonderland, and more that don't come immediately to mind. With petrol rationing we got to town only once a month, and brought back a large case of library books for the whole family, mainly adults, and as we all read each other's books I had a fair diet of 'who dunnits' as I approached adolescence. :lol:
