  1. Just wow. I need to catch up. (It would be helpful to have the publication dates as well. But I can find those myself.) I think I need to gather all my Avi books to give to my grandkids soon. And buy missing titles! I am so glad you are in this world and have worked so hard. Thank you.

  2. Ever since I was a kid I have loved all the books I have read of yours. To this day my favorites are Midnight Magic and The Man Who Was Poe. When I see this list I am shocked that I never saw and still don’t see many of these books in the library or even in book stores. Thanks for a book list! Now I can have my children read more of your books and I can enjoy more of them myself.
