May 9 Children's Book Week (extended)

There are more books to share from blog readers and my tweeps.
  • The Tom Swift series created by Edward Stratemeyer.
  • Doc Savage of comic book and later paperback fame is a character created by Henry W. Ralston and John L. Nanovic.   The Man of Bronze is a fabulous character.   Fair warning, though, the 1994 movie is, at best, campy.
  • Earl Derr Biggers created the Charlie Chan character.   The first book was published in 1923.
  • Conan the Barbarian is a character created in 1932 and featured in stories and comics.
  • Crictor (1958) by Tomi Ungerer
  • The Plant Sitter by Gene Zion and illustrator Margaret Bloy Graham.   Zion and Graham also wrote and illustrated, respectively, Harry the Dirty Dog books.   What's funny to me is that the dog in The Plant Sitter looks like Harry!
