Macaire | 2 comments Hi there. I'm looking for a the name of a series of hardcover children's books containing short stories. I believe it was something fairly generic like Children's Collection of Classics, but that search doesn't turn up what I'm looking for. They were fairly large books, and there were about 6-12 books in the series (the exact number escapes me).

They may have been published in the 50s or 60s as my parents (56 and 58) grew up reading them. I believe the covers were fairly plain, but the bindings had small line drawing pictures on them. The books were all solid color hardcovers, but different colors. They may have been slightly textured.

They were arranged by subject, one of which was animals. Two of the stories I remember from the series were "The Hobyahs" and "How Chipmunk Got His Stripes."

Any help would be much appreciated.

Check out the anthologies on the following url to see other sets that might be what you're looking for: http://www.loganberrybooks.com/most-a...
