Cheryl Do you want ones that just mention such in the text? Emily of New Moon is told partly in narrative, partly in Emily's diary and 'letters' to her father. (He's dead, and she copes by writing to him because they shared books as she was growing up.)

Or would you prefer books that have letters you can pull out, or lift flaps to see, or at least that look different on the page, like Toot and Puddle?

Claire Chang I'm trying to find this book that I read once when I was a kid, about 25 years ago. It's driving me nuts that I searched all over but cannot recall its title. It's about a child (girl/boy?) whose mother or uncle had hidden a present somewhere with clues, so the child went on scavenger hunt to uncover a piece of clue (in an actual envelope glued to the page), which lead her/him to the next clue (another envelope/note), and so on and forth.
I remember reading it once and loved it at the time because of the notes in the envelopes and the treasure hunt idea.

I'm hoping someone here may have an idea as to what the book is called?

Much Thanks...

Cheryl That does sound vaguely familiar, but I have no idea what it might be. Good idea to post here - someone who knows should see it!

I am not familiar with this book but it sounds wonderful. If you do find it be sure to add it to the list. I would love to read it.
