All I can remember is that there were two children? teenagers? who found a secret tunnel/passage (to another world, possibly?) and somewhere in there was a poodle named Mignon. At one point they were hiding behind some barrels, perhaps? Sorry that's all I have, and thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Is it a picture book or chapter book? What was the world like--did it have animals that were human like or was it other human type characters? Do you remember what role Mignon played in the book?

I love that Wikipedia has a list of fictional dogs, but unfortunately Mignon didn't make the list.

Probably not Mignon, a "gay Elizabethan" novel.

Oh dear - so sorry to have left out essential info like dates! It would have been mid to late 70's, I can't remember any of the other characters in it, and none of the books you so kindly listed seem to have familiar titles or plots. So funny about the Wikipedia list - what will they think of next? Thanks for all your efforts - I remain hopeful!!

And bookel, thank you for the gentle message reminder ^_^
On a related note, I just had a successful "FIND" for the other book I posted about, and moved it (using good etiquette) to the "solved" thread (if I did it correctly...)
I like you guys already!! :D

bookel | 2112 comments First can you eliminate all these:
Travel from real to fantasy world -- children's/young adult fiction

bookel | 2112 comments It's difficult to search for so hopefully someone has read the book.

I will go through the list in the link you provided - hopefully it's searchable by pub. date, or I might be doing it forever... ^_^
