    Children’s: Pollyanna, I only know that because of the movie. I got nothing else!

    Well, I knew none of these, but I know know that the D.H. Lawrence is called the Fox and it looks like it might be wonderful.

    And I am betting that #3 is the worm, but can there really be so many?

    Cat Who Covered the World looks good, too. (I know that now, too, but since I looked it up I suppose others can too.)

    Wow. For the first time, no idea about ANY of these. How sad.

      This was a hard one. I guessed Pollyanna and knew Broadway Bound only because an acquaintance from college (Bill Ragsdale) was in it when it came to Washington, D.C. when I was living there in the 80s.
