Animals VII & Classic Children!

I’m concluding and introducing brilliantly-themed challenges….  with “a hat trick”!  That’s a hockey term:  3 goals scored by the same person.  Let’s reduce traffic for subscribers who prefer my articles and score 3 objectives in the same post!



This theme in which I partook is very different:  12 children’s books published by 1960.  The hostess clarifed the word “classic” in her title.  Whether at thrift stores or garage sales, I find a great deal of darling books not well known.  The intended synonym is “old”.  Visit my original post below and find eclectic reviews of less-known and infamous children’s literature.




Animals appearing in the title, on the cover, in a major role.

The same New York, USA hostess “Yvonne“, runs “Finish The Series” and “Cruising Through Cozies”.  She provides a link on her blog and clicking it results in food donated to animals in need.  Try it when you view either of the links through my badges on this page.

I’d like to mention she named her popular website after her dear cat, “Socrates”.  He passed away in November 2012.  I was shown photos of he, “Trini”, and “Geiger” who went to Heaven in 2009 and June 2012.  They are lovely.  I dedicate my post to the three of them.


1)  All volumes of a series qualify.
2)  It doesn’t matter if you have only 1 more to complete the goal, it qualifies.
3)  Yvonne likes to include recent volumes available reasonably early in the year.  There is no problem if you were unable to obtain it, or don’t plan to continue a series past what you own.


Level 1  Complete 01 series.
Level 2  Complete 02 series.
Level 3  Complete 3+ series.


Ghost Ship”  P.J. Alderman  2011
Angel’s Verdict”  Mary Stanton  2010
Angel Condemned”  Mary Stanton  2011
These are genuinely finished.

The Irish Cairn Murder”  Dicey Deere  2003
A Taste For Murder”  Claudia Bishop  1994
I couldn’t bear any more of these.  I’m only short one Dicey Deere.
