I tweaked this one's title a bit, because so many of my fave authors are the very prolific kind. I didn't finish this one in time to link it up, but this was the original post.

1. Marguerite Henry: The Birds at Home
The last one of her books about animals that I have yet to lay my hands on, so I'm saving it until I find a copy to buy. (She has several other books I have not seen either, but they are more geography-based and about children in other lands, and I'm not really interested in tracking them down)

2. Lynn Hall: the entire "need to find" portion of this list, plus those as marked on the "owned" part

3. Dorothy Lyons, horse book author extraordinare:

  • Midnight Moon

  • Copper Khan

  • Harlequin Hullabaloo a.k.a. Bluegrass Champion

  • Bright Wampum

  • Red Embers

  • Smoke Rings

  • Java Jive

  • Her autobiography, The Devil Made the Small Town

4. Kim Culbertson (YA):

  • The Possibility of Now

  • The Wonder of Us

5. Morgan Matson: Save the Date
Honestly, I am equal parts excited for new Matson and absolute DREAD at having to endure a wedding setting. This is the most boring thing to me. It already took down a new Sarah Dessen book I was excited for but got SO BORED with that I couldn't get more than 40 pages in, and Matson's books are longer.

6. Kristen Chandler: Thief of Happy Endings
Words. Cannot. Express. The excitement.

7. Nick Bantock

  • The Griffin & Sabine series (I own it -- except for the newly-released 7th one -- and have gotten partway through book one a few times, but ultimately I always get too overwhelmed by how much I love the art design to finish.)

  • The Egyptian Jukebox

  • Windflower

  • The Artful Dodger: Images and Reflections (when I am more familiar with this work)

8. Bill Peet
They're picture books, but they were Very Important Parts of my childhood, and one day I want to finish his whole canon.

  • The Ant and the Elephant

  • Goliath II

  • Kermit the Hermit

  • Jethro and Joel Were a Troll

  • Pamela Camel

9. Jean Slaughter Doty, pony book author extraordinare:

  • The Monday Horses

  • Valley of the Ponies

  • Dark Horse

  • Gabriel

  • possibly Yesterday's Horses

10. Lucy Dillon
The 6 books she wrote after Walking Back to Happiness; goodness I got behind!

I know there are some others I liked in elementary/middle school with really long back catalogues (Jim Kjelgaard! Jean Craighead George and/or Mr. George!), but it has been so long since I read any of them that even the ones I have read, I've largely forgotten. So maybe there will be a Part II in the future, but for now...
The Griffin & Sabine series (I own it -- except for the newly-released 7th one -- and have gotten partway through book one a few times, but ultimately I always get too overwhelmed by how much I love the art design to finish.)
