I read a book which involved going back in time and bringing back an original hot off the presses copy of the Bay Psalm book to sell, then returning.
A girl and her younger brother go to live with their aunt (I think after their parents have an accident?). They aren’t fond of her. The book is in the girl’s perspective. The siblings go through some of their aunt’s things in her house (attic?). Somehow they are transported back in time to her childhood. They witness several events from her past. (I feel like I remember reading that when they are transported back in time, the sister is in the aunt’s body and the brother is in their father’s body. I may be wrong about that though.) Anyways I believe their grandfather was abusive towards the aunt and father in the past, so the aunt was protective of their father. I remember one of the last moments they traveled to was a peace rally, or an anti-war rally. (Think it may have been a protest against the Vietnam war- I remember mentions of peace signs.) I think by the end of the book they had grown to respect and appreciate their aunt more because of the experience.
My brother read a short children's book when he was a kid in the 1970s. The book was about a kid (boy) and a talking clock, the parents of the child are lost (died), the clock takes the boy back to happier moments in the past. At the end the boy is reunited with his parents. My brother said the book only had a few pages similar to Golden Books. If you know someone who could point us towards finding the book it would be appreciated.
Seeking time travel SciFi book where one of the destinations the character visits when testing the time machine he decides to call "Earth without a J" because he saw his garage, but the Junk Jar was now labeled "Unk Ar" and everything else was the same. Thank you!
Looking for a book about a girl who finds a pair of glasses in the woods. When she puts them on, they transport her back in time. I believe there were pioneers and Native Americans. I read this book probably in the late 80’s. Likely juvenile fiction.
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 beautifully illustrated, middle-reader American (I think) fantasy book about a brother/sister or possibly male/female friends who somehow stumbled from their somewhat urban home/apartment building into a medieval setting when coming home from school one day in the woods near their home.
I was born in 1970 and was a very early and voracious reader, so this book cannot have been published much later than 1976; my guess (contextually) is that it’s most-likely a little earlier than that.
I am looking for a book I read in junior high back in the early 80’s. I am guessing it was from the 1950s or 60s because the book was older looking with that canvas style cover and it was green. It was about 4ish siblings (some could have been friends) that went back in time or into another dimension to the prehistoric age. I think they went through some sort of shrubbery door, but not sure. I remember them, of course, trying to get back home, because there were dinosaurs and they didn’t have much food. They came across some sort of plant at some point that sustained them. I thought the title was something about being “Lost in Time”, “Forgotten World/Past”, etc. but just a guess. Thank you kindly for any help. I have Google searched and came across a couple of books about adults getting lost in prehistoric times but this was for sure about kids and I think they were siblings and maybe even a friend with them. Maybe the oldest being early teens down to a 7 year old. Again, thanks and I hope you can help!
No idea of publication year, I read it in 2003. Title is something like “As Time Passes” or “Time Lost” but I honestly only know that it has something to do with time in the title. No idea on character names, one might be Isabella ?? Plot description: has something to do with a girl traveling back in time to different eras, she meets a guy at one point who she falls in love with, but then travels to another time where she is maybe held captive in a royal castle where they think she is their daughter or something to that extent. I honestly don’t remember how she time travels, maybe because of a book she finds, or some kind of power?? I believe the front cover is like a pale yellow with a girl facing away with a braid in her hair.
