How can I find a book that I don't know the title of?

For years I've been wanting to re-read a book from my childhood, but I can't remember the title or the author, although I have a pretty good recall of the plot. Does anyone know of a website where you can search key words from the text of the book, or key words about the plot? [hopeful emoticon]

yeah, c'mon, Bran - what's the plot - or some of the characters? MN can do it!

The answer is obvious: ask on Mumsnet!

But first you've got to ask - so go ahead, we're ready...

Stig of The Dump?
Mrs Pepperpot?
The 'Jill' series about ponies?

Good grief, I only went to get ds out of the cot after his nap and there's already loads of interest. Let me just make some toast and humus for ds and I'll be back with the plot.

Is it "Changes"? That was a big favourite of mine. It was serialised on kids' tv as well.

Or "A Pair of Jesus Boots"? That was also on telly as "Rocky O'Rourke".

Yes, I did watch a lot of telly!
