So I got nostalgic earlier, and some searching around on Amazon has made me hungry for some old kids' books I used to have and adore.

If you have these titles, please, please, please, please, please leave a comment. I'm willing to pay (reasonably--I know what they're worth, and it's not much) or swap books that I have and don't want.

The books I'm looking for are:

King Bidgood's in the Bathtub - Audrey Wood
Animalia - Graeme Base
Tuesday - David Wiesner
The Eleventh Hour - Graeme Base

The Runaway Bunny - Margaret Wise Brown
Strega Nona - Tomie dePaola
The entire "Wizard of Oz" series (especially The Lost Princess of Oz, which was my favourite) - L. Frank Baum
A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle

Some of the books I'm willing to trade, and this is by no means a complete list:
The Whispering Statue (A Nancy Drew book) - Carolyn Keene
Anne of Green Gables - L. M. Montgomery
The Incredible Journey - Sheila Burnford (I hate to part with this one, though. It's one of my favourite books. Love that pit bull.)
The Prince and the Pauper - Mark Twain
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle - Avi
The Bellmaker - Brian Jacques
Castaways of the Flying Dutchman - Brian Jacques

Also, I am seriously considering starting a LJ community where people can swap old, used children's books. If you're at all interested, I am begging you to let me know.

It's just something I'd love to do.
