Because you won't get as many duplicate titles, Worldcat works better for common titles than Abe or Amazon. Pictures are best: Once you have narrowed down a possible title, try Amazon. The colour option on Google is working better and better. It's a real help.
I have started using Images on bing. Look in the left hand column to limit your search to these. A few words can help: If all you can remember is a few words, try Google. Put the words in quotes. Use only one or two, essential, easily-spelled, keywords. Selling One or Two Books. Probably the easiest place for an individual to sell books like those above is on Amazon. Look up your book, click on the picture, then look in the blue box for "Have one to sell?
If, and only if, Amazon has listed the book in the past, will you be able to list also. Ebay is also very easy and inexpensive to use for a few books and it allows you more room to describe the books. For pricing your book, it is easier and more accurate to use the Abebooks. Then double check on Amazon because prices there are sometimes higher.
Amazon's Search is really not set up for out of print books.
The more care you put into describing your books, the more likely you are to sell them. Note: We do not purchase books online, sight unseen. Please do not offer them to us.

Many, many thanks to all the wonderful readers who help to ID these books! We also appreciate those who take the time to thank the contributors for researching their books. I remember reading a book in the mids about a boy who just became a big brother. He feels like his parents aren't paying him attention anymore so he goes to his special "cubby place" or a hiding place of some sort in his room where he keeps his toys. The boy in the story was no more than 7 years old, possibly younger.
We have been trying to figure out what this book is for the past 5 years. We've searched the library and online to no avail. Any ideas? Im not real clear on it sorry. But i believed it was an orangish colored cover with leaves and small children or elves or such on the cover and the thing i remember most about it was the story of the 5 chinse brothers and rikki tikki among other stories within it.
I dont know about the story with 5 brothers but here's one of the stories! Unfortunately I don't remember much about this book but I have been wanting to find it for quite some time. I used to check it out from the library. It might have been published in the s. It was about a child possibly a little girl who travels and visits her family members who represent the months of the year or possibly holidays.
I don't know Does this ring any bells? I'd love to find it! The Story of May by Mordecai Gerstein. The parents are April and December. May visits all her relatives who are the months of the year. Is it a Slavic tale called 'The Twelve Months'? I had a copy when I was little and it sounds the same. The first one was about English children who spent their summer by water, either a lake with a river, or a sea estuary. One of the images of the book is the setting sun making a golden path across the water.
There's a houseboat in the story. The other book was set in Tsarist Russia and it's the story of a little girl taken to live in a royal palace. She steals some fruit from the table and won't own up, allowing a servant to be blamed and punished, so next time all the children go skating she's left behind as a punishment.

Her name might be Katya. It depends on how old you are Kirsten! Although I couldn't find the specific events you mentioned and I didn't read the book, just read through summaries , it does seem to be about her realizing how priveleged her life has been and how others have little, so it could fit.
