Republishing out of print books

Now that ebooks are becoming so well established I've begun to muse on the books which are now out of print which I would love to see republished. My current suggestion would be Alf's Button by W.A. Darlington.

This concerns two soldiers in the Great War who discover that one of their tunic buttons has been made of Alladin's Lamp. As soon as some spit and polish is applied the Genie appears, to the consternation of the Tommies. The Genie offers them the usual choices but the two soldiers seem unable to make any sensible decisions. Alladin did not have it so difficult.

What would yours be?
