On a side note, how did the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew ever get together if
written by different authors? Also, how old are these books? The same with
the Boxcar series. Somehow, I thought they are really old, but perhaps not.
Where can one get these?

  Hi gang,

  One of the mandates we have received lately is to try to finish up all the
books in children's chapter series. Obviously we'll never get ALL of them
done, but we can at least make a valiant effort at it. I would encourage
anyone who's interested in this to scan and validate these books to help
out! If you're wondering what books I'm talking about, here's a partial list
of children's chapter books in series:
  Amber Brown, by Paula Danziger
  Amelia Bedelia, by Herman Parish
  American Girl, by various authors
  Animorphs, by K. A. Applegate
  Arthur, by Marc Brown
  Baby-sitter's Club and Baby-sitter's Little Sister, by Ann M. Martin
  Bailey School Kids, by Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones
  Beatrix Potter
  Berenstain Bears, by Stan and Jan Berenstain
  Boxcar Children, by Gertrude Chandler Warner
  Cam Jansen, by David Adler
  Clue, Jr., by Parker C. Hinter
  Commander Toad, by Jane Yolen
  Curious George, by Margret and H. A. Rey
  Dr. Seuss
  Encyclopedia Brown, by Donald Sobol
  Everworld, by Katherine Applegate
  Hardy Boys, by Franklin W. Dixon
  Harry Potter, by J. K. Rowling (DONE!)
  How Do Dinosaurs, by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague
  Junie B. Jones, by Barbara Park
  Lemony Snicket
  Leven Thumps, by Obert Skye
  Little House, by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  Magic Tree House, by Mary Pope Osborne
  Misty of Chincoteague, by Marguerite Henry
  Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle, by Betty MacDonald
  Nancy Drew, by Carolyn Keene
  Nate the Great, by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat
  Polk Street School, by Patricia Reilly Giff
  Ramona, by Beverly Cleary
  Secret World of Alex Mack, by various authors
  Time Warp Trio, by Jon Scieszka
  Trixie Belden, by Julie Campbell
  Winnie the Pooh, by A. A. Milne
  Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum

  I'm sure there are some childrens' series I've missed, but feel free to
scan and validate those books too. Some people (like Mayrie) have been
diligent in submitting these books, and I thank them very much! (And of
course, if you're not interested in this, never mind...)

  Thanks in advance for your help!  Carrie
