I read this on The Book Bench and it led me to this, Curious Pages: Recommended Inappropriate Books For Kids.  This blog does what it says, but the books aren’t always (ever) inappropriate – posts are about unusual or forgotten children’s titles, books with great illustrations (tons of pictures on the site) or are book reviews, by kids.  I love this site and think it’s probably the best place to go if you are buying a book for a kid, or yourself, or someone interesting, especially if you’re into tracking old stuff down.
