About the Author

(1908-1988) In searching for information on Nan Gilbert (aka Mildred Gilbertson), we discovered that she wrote a number of young adult romances like The Unchosen, about teen dating. She might be amused if she she knew that her lasting legacy was for a simpler book designed for toddlers and bedtime reading.

Loganberry Legacy

Now here's a classic that certain baby boomers remember clearly and fondly: 365 Bedtime Stories. One story per night about What-a-Jolly Street for a year! There are other books with similar titles, but this is one most remember (see the Anthology Finder for different versions of this title). We do get it from time to time, so let us know if you want one!
