This book appears to be written by an ex-boyfriend and girlfriend who agree to write alternating chapters. The book includes their email conversations as they struggle over where the plot will go and rehash relationship mishaps. It is very funny. The mystery plot involves a brother and sister who live in a rural area. He grows pot illegally and she works as a barista….
I had this book back around kindergarten and now I’m a senior. I remember it was a block book, (I could be wrong, however) it was small, and it was a Halloween book. Sadly, the only piece of plot I remember is that the ghost ate candy, and then when it got scared, the candy fell out of him. I hope this helps!!
I read this book in six grade in the mid-80s. I think it was a fantasy type story. This society had once been in contact with humans (or maybe just one human). He may have come over the mountains on a hot air balloon.
They got a few things confused about humans. For example, they had a painting of a tree and a diagram of a family tree (genealogy chart). They called the genealogy chart a picture and the painting of the tree a family tree. So everyone in this society had a very carefully tended “family tree” in their yard. Unfortunately, I remember nothing about the actual plot.
A tiger or lion cub fights the ocean and makes it retreat, but it was only the tide going out. This might be a folktale or fable in a child's anthology or scholastic services book circa 1965-69. Young protagonist may have had elevated opinion of self.
I randomly remembered a book I read probably a few years ago now. I only remember a few oddly specific things.
For starters, this main girl had a brother and she would bring food out to their yard to him and that is just always where they met up. By a tree, I think. Then later we find out that the brother is actually dead and she has been imagining this all. And the food she was giving him in like these sandwich bags is her food and she wasn’t eating. So she sort of accidentally starved herself. And I think at a point near the end, the parents see all of the sandwich bags full of food out by the tree and sort of realize what has been going on.
That is all I can remember, I hope you can help!!
I can picture the cover perfectly. I read it in the early 90’s. A boy is in a small row boat and it is foggy. All I can remember is something about a small island he finds close to his house……good luck!
Hello! I am looking for a storybook collection that I had in the 1980’s.
I am looking for a 1920’s-30s romance, where the heroine earns her living being a professional letter writer, and she begins a correspondence with a young man (invalid/injured?) using the persona of an elderly motherly woman. The only other detail that I can recall is she sent the young man some women’s hats and requested that he choose the one he liked for her.
I am looking for a 1920s-30s illustrated children’s book where the plot revolves around a rich little boy who is injured (toy boat explosion), who stays at home communicating through his window with the poor little girl who lives across the street. His head is wrapped in gauze. The format of the book may be square?
