The Dragon of Lonely Island, by Rebecca Rupp
Hannah, Zachary, and Sarah Emily are spending summer at their great-aunt Mehitabel's house on faraway Lonely Island. There, in a cave hidden high above the ocean, they discover a fabulous creature: a glittering three-headed golden dragon with a kind heart, an unpredictable temper, and a memory that spans 20,000 years...

 

No Flying in the House, by Betty Brock
Most little girls have parents to take care of them, but Annabel Tippens 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 half-fairy!

 

Twig, by Elizabeth Orton Jones
Twig was just a plain, ordinary little girl who lived on the fourth floor of a "high sort of house" in the city. But one day, she found an empty tomato can, just the right size for a fairy! Twig stood it upside down next to the dandelion, not far from the stream. And this is the story of what happened in and around that little house one Saturday afternoon.

 

Cheerful, by Palmer Brown
This is the tale of a little church mouse named Cheerful who lives in the city with his parents; his brother, Solemnity; and his sisters, Faith and Hope. But while his siblings are happy to live in the bustling city, Cheerful’s dream is to settle in the country, and one day he bids his family farewell and sets off on an adventure.

 

The Elevator Family, by Douglas Evans

For the Wilson family, only the best will do! So when they arrive at the San Francisco Hotel and discover that there are no available rooms, they decide to stay in the place that suits them best of all: a room that has its ups . . . and its downs—a room called Otis, the hotel elevator

 

All of A Kind Family, by Sydney Taylor

Meet the All-of-a-Kind Family -- Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, and Gertie -- who share adventures that find them searching for hidden buttons while dusting Mama's front parlor and visiting with the peddlers in Papa's shop on rainy days. But no one could have prepared them for the biggest surprise of all!

 

Charlotte's Web, by E.B. White

Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. 

 

Shadrach, by Meindert DeJong

Even after David had had the little black rabbit, Shadrach, for several weeks, it was still almost unbelievable. David had never been happier...until the day Shadrach slipped through the stats of his hutch and disappeared.
