Another favorite, though I think it is probably a bit earlier, was a French novel for children called The Horse Without a Head, by Paul Berna. I have an old Scholastic edition of this book, too.
It's fairly easy to collect old Scholastic books, canarylampshade. One way to recognize them among other kids books is to look for the Scholastic numbers on the spines, preceded by the letters SBS or TX.
(Oh! How could I forget The Ghost of Dibble Hollow and The Forgotten Door?)
Where was I? Oh, right - anyhow, most kids now aren't attracted to the old Scholastics, so when you see them in used book stores or garage sales, they are typically inexpensive. Library sales are another good place to look for them, as they are often donated to libraries when people clear out their attics.
In all my years of book collecting and shopping, I think I've only run across one old Scholastic flyer order form (the books were 35 and 40 cents); I wish I could find some of the old flyers, too.
Thank you, quite seriously, for the lead.
I well understand the giddy excitement of having a book quest. Truly. Good luck!
