Kids Books Poll

A previous post about Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, which apparently I am the only child to have ever read of, has made me curious about how obscure some of the other books were that I read growing up. I never read the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew series, which I’m pretty sure means my parents should have been arrested or at least fined.

So, which of the following have you read or heard of?

1. Danny Dunn series (such as Danny Dunn and the Anti-Gravity Paint)1
2. The Great Brain series
3. The Boxcar Children series

That’s all I can think of for now in terms of series. Any other good suggestions?

1 terracinque and I have discussed this series in the past, and I believe she felt that this had been popular about a half-generation before me.
