GIRLS SERIES BOOKS: A CHECKLIST OF TITLES PUBLISHED · University of Minnesota Libraries
The phenomenal popularity of some series has also engendered spinoffs. Publishers also discovered the appeal of "specials"--longer books, issued once or twice a year, using the same characters as in regular series. As with their predecessors, series from the s and s treat a variety of topics, appealing to a wide range of interests. Several series have adopted unusual approaches. In short, girls' series are again big business, and a new generation of readers are discovering the pleasure of following a favorite character through numerous adventures. Definitions As with the earlier edition, Girls' Series Books lists American fictional series books for girls, this time including those series that began between and As with the previous edition, this includes many "tots" series-i.

Only books of 48 or more pages are included Hoyle n. Some parameters have been modified. The original edition defined a series as "three or more books that have parallel titles or the same character. Titles that were originally published as part of a thematic series or were extensively advertised as such soon after their initial publication are included.
Publishers' series - those series where publishers later grouped unrelated volumes, frequently by different authors, under an umbrella title such as "Girl Chums" or "Maidenhood" - have been excluded. Organization The bibliography is arranged alphabetically by series title with cross references to the main entry under alternate titles. The earlier edition used parenthesis to distinguish between titles assigned by the compiler and those listed in the publication; these have been deleted.
Each entry lists series title, followed by the stated author of the series; if this is a known pseudonym, it is followed by the actual author's name in parenthesis. This reverses the procedure used in the earlier edition. The original publisher follows; reprint publishers are not given.
About the Book
If the original publication was a paperback edition, PB appears after the publisher's name. Because this edition includes three types of series which are often not of interest to collectors, they are marked as such on the line following the publishers' name: Although there are many interactive series, such as "Choose Your Own Adventure," only those series specifically intended for girls have been included here. Whenever possible, volume numbers correspond to the actual numbering of the series. Some listings are incomplete: An asterisk before the title indicates a copy is in the CLRC.
Dates used are copyright dates, which are occasionally for the year prior to actual publication, especially for nineteenth-century series and January titles of contemporary series issued on a monthly basis. Notes follow some series entries, clarifying material or conveying additional information. A "Related series" or "Related titles" line refers to other series or to single volumes, not issued as part of the series, in which major or secondary characters also appear.
A "See also" reference indicates that additional information or a continuation of the series may be found under another series title.

Camp Ken Jocky 3. While the combination sounds unlikely, planners took carefully installed a number of "gimmicks" that would let the photographer do his work without interfering with dinner preparations. A heavy green fabric shade could darken the room in broad daylight, while hidden lights beneath the base of a wall cabinet could let photographers replace his wife's regular light bulb with a safelight bulb. A tall cabinet could double as a broom closet and as a space for drying film.
When the brooms are removed, a small electric fan heater at the bottom of the cabinet could work on the film. Read the full story in "Kitchen Doubles as a Photo Darkroom". This model, touted as the "half-size 'dream' refrigerator," featured magnetic doors that could open on both sides. It took up about 5 cubic feet and used only half an inch of insulation, as opposed to the standard 10 cubic feet and three inches of insulation used in conventional household refrigerators.
Nowadays, we know that bar fridges use energy inefficiently, as they release an inordinate amount of cool air when opened, so we can understand why this multi-door model never hit the market. Still, it would have been a pretty slick addition to our kitchens. To improve the efficiency of housework, engineers at Cornell University's home economics department recorded slow-motion movies of women working in kitchens. By studying the subjects' movements, researchers were able to adjust features of the kitchen to simplify the subjects' work. For instance, in Cornell's woman-friendly kitchen, range burners were staggered so that women could watch the cooking more easily.

Adjustable counter tops eliminated the need for stepping stools, and cabinet locations were reorganized so that all equipment would be in easy reach. While the average kitchen was just a hodgepodge of appliances and machinery,Cornell's kitchen was organized into five work centers: Between and , General Motors held an auto stage show called Motorama to promote national car sales. Among the Oldsmobiles and Cadillacs was, invariably, something for female audiences: GM predicted that in the future, kitchens would hold a ton of ultra-motorized features, including an electric mixers and food blenders that rise out of the counter and motorized cabinets that move up and down.
Even a sink in the middle of the room, complete with a retractable oven, seemed a fantastic innovation. Read the full story in "What Would Grandma Say? If Her Kitchen Had". In the same vein as Cornell's research, "modern kitchen studies" strove to speed up work in the kitchen via technology and inventive design. New range and built-in ovens were small enough to fit in tight spaces, while supply areas are clustered around work centers.
Although nowadays we take it for granted that kitchens are filled with drawers and twin cabinets, back in the 's, storage units designed to maximize workspace and minimize dashing around were a big deal. For our readers who happened to enjoy shop work, we provided instructions on building the cabinets pictured left. In the future, women won't need to reach for the spice rack, crank up the oven, or remove the toaster from storage -- the kitchen will do all the work for them.
This model kitchen was completely button-operated: Read the full story in "Buttons, Buttons". In , General Motors featured another Kitchen of Tomorrow at its Motorama show, and this model contains elements that have yet to become a part of today's kitchens. Most notably, you can open the refrigerator or answer the phone simply by waving your hand around. A tray hanging from the ceiling transports heavy appliances and ingredients.
To the far left is the housewife's intercom center, which uses a rotating TV to let her know what's going on in other parts of the house. Frigidaire and General Motors' Kitchen of Tomorrow is the most iconic of its models, having been immortalized in a minute musical film titled "Design For Dreaming. The clear domed oven, which you can see atop the counter pictured left, could roast a turkey within 45 minutes. If you stuck a bowl of batter in there, a birthday cake would emerge -- frosting, candles, and all. In the back corner, a rotating storage system would hold dry, refrigerated, and frozen goods.
Electronically-controlled cabinets would use electric motors to rise and lower themselves.
