books by Viking Juvenile
Viking Juvenile, 1943
Good stories are timeless
I bought this book for my 11 year old grandson and he loved it. He thought the story about Homer Price and the Doughnut machine was the best, but of course we had previously visited Krispy Kreme, and saw their machine, and sampled their doughnuts. I read this story many years ago and have read it since as part of a Read Aloud session.
Ronia, the Robber's Daughter
Viking Juvenile, 1983
My childhood book
I wanted to buy this book for my children to read, because it was my favorite story when I was little. The book arrived quickly, in perfect condition, and I couldn't be happier.

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat (Caldecott Medal Book)
Viking Juvenile, 1999
A unique and amazing children's book
I have used this in my second grade classroom for a couple of years now. The illustrations in this book are wonderful - I love the cutouts! Children always love books with an element of surprise to them. Their is a traditional Jewish folk song at the end of the book, which is a great addition. The story itself is great for young children because of the repetitive nature of it. It's ...
Zoom (Viking Kestrel picture books)
Viking Juvenile, 1995
My 3 year-old boy love it
He wants to go over these pages again and again forward (zoom out) and backwards (zoom in). The last pages (going into darkness) cause him a bit of anguish... but hey that part of being human and facing nothingness!
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!
Viking Juvenile, 1999
I love this book! I read it when I was a little girl and now I get to share it with my little boy.
Llama Llama Red Pajama
Viking Juvenile, 2005
This book is awesome!
I was reading some of the 1 star reviews and I think it's a little bit wacky for those parents to say that this book sends a bad message. It's a fantastic book and it's very clever. My children know it word for word and they think it's funny. Every parent gets busy at sometime or another when a child wants something. We can not be at their beck and call 24/7! It's important for a child to ...
The Story of Holly and Ivy
Viking Juvenile, 1958

The Brothers Lionheart
Viking Juvenile, 1975
The mysterious beyond
What happens when I die? Will I be all alone? Where will mom and dad be when I die? Will they be sad? What will happen to me after I die? These are questions children wonder about. When my daughter was about 5-6 years old she kept talking about "the mysterious beyond" where you go after you die. We have no idea where she got this idea from. In this book, Astrid Lindgren, the Swedish author ...

This was my FAVORITE book as a child and I'm thoroughly pleased that I was able to find a new first edition. Shipping was very fast and the book arrived exactly as described. Thank you!
The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking
Viking Juvenile, 1997
Great fun book!
This book was one of my favorites as a child. I purchased it now for my daughter. Astrid Lindgren the writer of the book is not as well known in the U.S. as she is in Europe. It's a pity, because her books are great.
Awake and Dreaming
Viking Juvenile, 1997
Awake and Dreaming
Awake and Dreaming is a book that helps us understand just how much we should be thankful for. It also helps us see that no matter how bad our situation, there is always someone in a worse predicament. The story is about a girl named Theo. She and her mom live in Vancouver, Canada. It is safe to say that they are poor. Theo's life was very hard and she was going through a lot. So her mother ...
Viking Juvenile, 1966
I loved this as a little girl, bought one for my niece...
bought one for myself and my sister. My first copy was from the Scholastic book sale at school in 1973. This is a very delightful and innocent mystery that captivated me as a child. This is a beautiful book to share with your daughters, nieces, granddaughters,etc. It is nice to sit back and remember when it was very cool not to be whiny, materialistic, over exposed and selfish..when it was ...
Before You Were Here, Mi Amor

For the Whole Family
A joyful read for all ages, this bright story mixes in spanish language words that are fun and easy to understand even for the reading- and language-challenged. Creates a timeless sense of wonder and warmth in the readers and a strong sense of family. Gorgeous illustrations make it a great story to read over and over.
When the Sky is Like Lace
Elinor Lander Horwitz
Viking Juvenile, 2004
The best childrens' book of all time!!!
So I was ABOUT to pay $132 for an out of print version of this book when I saw it had been reprinted!!! I feel like its Christmas. This was my FAVORITE book as a child. I have an old color photocopy that I have read every day to my 13 months old since he was 6 months old. Its SO battered and falling apart - but he still picks it to have me read to him every time. He LOVES it. If you want ...
Voyage to the Bunny Planet
Viking Juvenile, 2008
This is a great collection with all three of the Bunny Planet books - First Tomato, Moss Pillows and Island Light. When the book arrived, I was surprised that it was so nice. I must not have read the description clearly because I thought I was just getting Island Light. Instead it's a hard cover with the history of the bunny queen Janet, relevant quotations by famous people, a nice ribbon ...
101 Dalmatians: 2
Viking Juvenile, 1959
Fabulous book, much better than the movie!
This is one of those books I found as a child AFTER seeing the Disney movie and reading that it was based on a book. As usual, the book is so much better! If you've never read this book, but you're fond of the movie, or of dogs, you will love it. The story is truly heart-warming, and I love that certain scenes are oh-so familiar if you've seen the movie, but so much of the story is completely ...
The Mystery of the Third Lucretia (A Kari and Lucas Mystery)
Viking Juvenile, 2008
art, feminism, travel and mystery? Yes!
After reading a glowing review of The Mystery of the Third Lucretia, I knew I wanted to read it. When it came in for me at the library, I first read the author's biography, which begins "Susan Runholt shares a love of art, travel and feminism with her teenage heroines." I would add reading to the list, but I'm proud to share the other three with Ms. Runholt, Lucas and Kari. The Mystery of the ...
One Morning in Maine
Viking Juvenile, 1952
A girl finds her way in Maine
"One Morning in Maine" is the sweet story of a girl with a loose tooth and her morning adventures in a coastal town in Maine. She wants to share the news of her loose tooth with everyone - the loon on the lake, the hawk in his next, and the seal at the water's edge. She realizes she is becoming a big girl with this loose tooth, but most of all, she has lots of questions about animals with ...
Mio, My Son
Viking Juvenile, 1956
the stuff dreams are made from
I am so happy to find this book in English so that I can share it to my little American friends. In Germany, where I was born in 1983, Astrid Lindgren is a 'must-have' in every children's bookshelf. I grew up with beautiful characters like Mio and Madita, Michel and Ronja. I think the other reviews speak for themselves, I just wanted to add one more thing from self experience: I think these ...
