    Place to research children's books?
    I'm looking for a book I used to enjoy as a kid, but I can't remember what it's called. Any good sites for finding book titles? I know there are a bunch for song titles, but most of the book sites I've found are pushing sales not info.

    Just in case, the book was about a king or a prince who had either 7 or 9 friends (think it was seven), each with a unique talent and they all worked together to do something (i remember the mountain climbing part). The art was really cool - I think mainly watercolor and pen and ink. We're talking mid '70s...

    Thanks!

    Abebooks has book forum for that kind of thing:

    http://forums.abebooks.com/abesleuthcom

    I think the link above or this should be able to find it.

    Eathan, you might also want to check out some of the "mommies" forums, some might have threads where they discuss children's books. And if there's an active one, you could probably ask a mod to post asking if anyone remembers the name of such a book.
