Margherita | 4 comments I just joined this discussion group today and posted my first topic. Here's another request:

I'm looking for information about what I think is a series of books in children's literature from perhaps the 1920's to 1930's. I read these books in the 1960's after a recommendation from my librarian.

A young boy goes on adventures to and island and carries tangerines in a suitcase. The illustrations show him in a somewhat pointed cap. I don't remember much else about the stories except that they completely transported me to this little adventure world.

Thanks in advance,

Margherita | 4 comments Kristina Marie, I can't thank you enough!!! You just made my day. I had tried for years to find this information on sites for vintage children's books.

Happy New Year!
