Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Children's book--short stories, gorgeous sketch-style penciling/inking, had monsters

I am so sketchy on the details of this book, so I wouldn't be terribly surprised nobody gets the book.


It was a pretty awesome collection of short stories: I can only remember vague recollections of epic vines growing out of a building and some sort of trolls, perhaps a giant troll coming out of a building?  The book was full of pretty amazing sketch-style line penciled and inks, not so much of the color.  I want to say it was a book from the 70s, but I'm not quite sure.  I read it in the early 80s.  Hardback. 


If anyone actually figures this out for me I'll be really happy.
