Alana (bookslide) | 22 comments It's probably a picture book from the late '70 to the mid '80s.

Anyone?

Picture book? Or chapter?


message 4: by Alana (new)

Alana (bookslide) | 22 comments She just said "children's book," I think. Why, is it striking a chord?


message 5: by Alana (new)

Alana (bookslide) | 22 comments No pun intended...

vaguely--but the problem is--what I'm remembering is one of those "in between" type books. More than a picture book, not quite a chapter book.

Alana (bookslide) | 22 comments That's still the most anyone's been able to say about it yet, across two communities and with the help of several librarians!

Alana, are you still looking for this book?


message 9: by Alana (new)

Alana (bookslide) | 22 comments If you know it, I still remember who asked me. I think.

Cheryl (cherylllr) Well, I don't think anyone has a guess yet - but if you want us to keep looking, be sure to 'bump' this thread by adding a comment every few months. But if you've lost track of who asked for it, maybe we can stop looking?


message 11: by Alana (new)

Alana (bookslide) | 22 comments I'm no longer at that library system, although I am in touch with the patron, so if anyone has a thought, feel free to post it!

Michele | 2358 comments Is the entire book about him trying to find the guitar, which is actually hanging on his back? Makes me think of the William Makepeace Thackeray poem A Tragic Story :)


message 13: by Alana (new)

Alana (bookslide) | 22 comments Yeah, ha.


message 14: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl (cherylllr) Here's a free 'bump' for fall. Come back in a few months to bump again, ok? Otherwise, to be honest, we might conclude that this thread has been 'abandoned' and move it to the Abandoned folder.

Alana, are you ready to call this Solved? We can move it over there while you try to remember the patron.
