I’m on a mission to find a book that I read years ago. Sci-Fi. It takes place in the future with a genetically modified soldier that gets injected with a drug that lets him occupy the bodies of his ancestors. Then, the 2 doctors who injected him also inject themselves to chase the dangerous solder thru time. One of the doctors is an alcoholic man and the other is a woman in a wheelchair.
This is a picture book, not a chapter book, read in 1964/1965 from a grade 3 classroom.
My memory of it may be faulty as I was 8 when I read it.
Girl is unhappy in her village and a misfit; one of the pictures shows her running with dark hair streaming behind her. I remember the illustrations as being dark but beautiful, and the implication was that that the girl was a changeling.
Not “The White Ring” or “The Moorchild”.
- Magic shoes for walking on a beam of light
- A magic ride on Santa’s sleigh
- Pirates treasure and a gold doubloon
I think the items repeated on each page with one being added each time. The last line of each section was “white snow, bright snow, icy cold starlit snow”.
The book I want to know about is an early-to-mid-90’s R.L. Stine wannabe type book about a boy who suspects that his new friend is a vampire. There’s a bit about pizza and garlic I know. I want to say the paperback version I had had a yellow spine/layout.
I’m looking for an oversized 60’s-70’s children’s book. I believe it was called “The BIG Book of Cars, Trucks, Planes” etc. I also think it had illustrations of military stuff. Like I said, it was oversized, and had lots of illustrations on the cover and inside the book itself.
Large light blue hardcover (8"x10"?) with a child sitting in a field with a fairy on a mushroom on the front cover. The only poem I remember had the line "If you never talked with fairies. . . . ". May have also had the "Mr. Nobody" poem in it.
This was a book for younger children that I borrowed repeatedly from the library in the early 1970's in the UK. All I can remember are the first few lines:
“It wasn’t a cold day. It wasn’t a hot day. It was a day just right for climbing a mountain.”
I know it was a picture book, but I have no more idea about what happened in the story.
I’d love to track it down if possible.
I am looking for a book called Bonnie. It may also be spelled Bonny. I read it in the early 1980's when I was in 4th or 5th grade. I believe it was set in the 1950's. The main character sang in an all girls chorus and had her first crush. I think I remember that they went ice skating for one of their dates, maybe their first date. But at some point, she thinks he likes someone else or doesn't like her anymore for some reason. Of course, in the end, it was all a misunderstanding. It was a chapter book and had some illustrations, and I remember the book I read had a yellow cover with a picture of the main character (sketched).
This is a Christmas book and it follows three mice who are brothers. They're named after spices (if my memory serves me correctly, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Ginger). They're trying to find a Christmas present for their mother and she sings them a lullaby. This is all of the information that I can remember, but I am a senior in high school and I read it roughly 10 years ago.
