1980's Children's Books

Since there's a teen book series thread for the '80's I thought I'd start a children's book series '80's thread. For those of us who weren't teens in the '80's. I wasn't a teenager until October 1991.

Some childrens' books/book series I enjoyed during the 1980's:
Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys
Ramona Age 8
Judy Blume Series: Fudge, Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing, etc.
The Babysitter's Club
Curious George

What childrens' books or series of books did you read during the '80's

I adored Judy Blume when I was younger.

This is probably younger than what you were intending, but I had a nice collection of Little Golden Books. I really wish I had kept them. I managed to find one book that I enjoyed as a child at a second-hand store.

Forgot all about Judy Blume! She had some great books..
And Enid Blyton books were fantastic! I own all her boarding school books!
I used to want my mum to put me in boarding school because of those books I thought it would be awesome..

I don't know if I have ever read any Judy Blum books? I can't remember any anyhow.

I guess most stuff I read was first released before the 80s but I either read or reread stuff like C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, the Enid Blyton books and similar. And I enjoyed books where animals played an important part. For example, I adored Elyne Mitchell's series about Silver Brumby.

I read several different series of books. The Girls of Canby Hall, Junior High, the Ramona series, and several others I can't think of the name of. But I loved TGoCH, I read every one of those books. They were all the same, but it was fun for me.

I read a lot of Judy Blume, the Ramona books, the Babysitter's Club, and Camp Sunnyside Friends. Those are great books and each of them hold a special place in my heart.

Which books did you like, Claudia?

I'm really trying to remember this particular author I liked. I want to say her last name is Sachs.

off to hunt
