Kristin Schneider | 3 comments Looking for title of my favorite book in second grade which would be late 70s. Girl's glass animals come to life. She has magical powers and knows this because she can touch her nose to her elbow.

"Most little girls have parents to take care of them, but not Annabel Tippens.She has Gloria, a tiny white dog who talks and wears a gold collar. Annabel never thought it was strange that she had Gloria instead of real parents. Until one day a wicked, wicked cat named Belinda comes to tell her the truth -- she's not just a little girl, she's a half-fairy!
And she can do lots of things that other kids can't do, such as kiss her own elbow and fly around the house. But being a fairy isn't all fun and games, and soon Annabel must make a choice"

Kristin Schneider | 3 comments thank you for the suggestion but not quite it. There were definitely glass animals.

I'm pretty sure there were glass animals in "No Flying in the House"
