  • Forever Rose by Hilary McKay
  • How to Massage Your Cat by Alice M. Brock

  1. I love Hidden Talents and True Talents, and Alex and the Ironic Gentleman. Those are some of my favorite books, and not too well known.

  2. Forever Rose was one of my favorites. I'm not sure it's little-known, but I hadn't heard of it.

  3. hwalk, I've never heard of those! Cool!

    melissa, I hadn't heard of Forever Rose (or its predecessors in the series) before the Cybils and I liked it too. So for sure.

    Also, How To Massage Your Cat is very little known and very excellent! I laugh so hard I can't breathe pretty much every time I read it. It's picture book style.

  4. "Constance" by Patricia Clapp is a little-known read that I've loved since I discovered it in high school--a Plymouth Rock-era historical fiction. And "A Year Down Yonder" by Richard Peck is an absolute classic.

  5. I love Canadians! I don't think I'e met a Canadian author I didn't like. The King's Daughter by Suzanne Martel is about a French orphan who is sent to be a hunter/trapper/settler's wife in new French Canada. Cat's Eye Corner by Terry Griggs is a poetic puzzle book that I fervently wish I had written.
    Also, the Chronicles of Faerie by O.R. Melling are wonderful.
