Parents' Magazine Press, Cover slightly soiled and binding worn, otherwise G. There was a boy in his bed, who either couldn't sleep and was told a story about this night train, or dreamed of this train speeding through the countryside at night. Most of the illustrations were dark and pen-and-ink-like, and I specifically remember a page where the train was out of control and the boy or conductor or both were pulling back hard on the throttle to stop it.
I believe the cover was dark, like night. It was a relatively thin hardback. I would love to find this book for my sister, who is now a reading teacher. We read it in the mid- to lates, but I think it was used even then. Just a suggestion. David M. McPhail, The Train , Could this be it? Ages Lilian Moore, The Magic Spectacles , I was the original requester and I found it! Published by Parents' Magazine Press When I read the description I immediately thought of this book, and went looking for descriptions on the web to confirm.
Couldn't find any, but I'll make the suggestion anyway. Farmer Penelope, The magic stone , Farmer, Penelope, The Magic Stone. Yes, this is definitely it. The only good clue I can give you is that the one of the children's cats was named Ozymandias.
Pasta Pinot & Murder
I tried looking under Noel, Streatfield and Ozymandias but no luck. I have read a lot of the titles, hoping to recognize my description, but no luck. I did find references to lots of other books I read as a child tho! I have this book. The children stay with an aged great aunt who is extremely eccentric, to say the least. I don't know why this book has become so important for me, but I am getting the strong desire to own the books that were important to me as a kid, and I hope I can find them here.
I can think of no more rewarding collection that the pursuit of books one has loved. Thank you so much for your info!! Magic Summer is out of print and it would be great if you could find a copy for me. The Magic Summer. Illustrated by Edward Ardizzone. Random House, First edition.
Ex-library copy with usual markings. Rudy and Eugene Bahn. Published by Charles E. Merrill Company, , I did not find one about a magic fruit tree and a tortoise. However, The Straw Ox matches the description. The Rapunzel in this book does kill the witch by cutting her hair at the right moment. And a troll who turns himself into a pig does kidnap three sisters on three separate occasions and the one sister saves them by making the troll bring sacks of wood to the mother, but instead of putting wood in the bag, a sister goes in instead.
Illustartions are black and white. Thanks, I'll assume it is Magic Tales. Now does anyone know how to find the story about the tree and the tortoise? Another detail: the other animals keep trying to find out the magic word but they all forget it on the way home, but the tortoise is more diligent and simply keeps repeating it as he returns.
The downtrodden tortoise is more diligent and simply keeps repeating it as he returns and is lavished with gratitude. I think the word was something like "Bonjo". How about this - The Bojabi Tree , by Edith Rickert , illustrated by Anna Braune, published originally in , reprinted by Doubleday in , 46 pages "This once-popular picture book 'adapted from an African folk tale' will with its satisfying adventure, repetition of action, humor, and precise, colorful details, give fresh delight to kindergarten storytelling.
Four visits to King Leo are required before one of the creatures can remember the name of the fruit. Amusingly illustrated with pencil drawings. The first story is Ask Mr. Well, Edith Rickert's version certainly fits the plot - but the one I'm looking for is much less cutesy - the animals have no names, IIRC, and they certainly don't wear clothes.
In all, it's more streamlined. I remember that one animal forgets because he bumps his head and another because he falls and rolls and bites his tongue too often to pronounce the word properly. The one picture I remember is that of the tortoise looking sadly at the angry wise man.
B96 bonjo: aha! I haven't been able to find a publication date or any more information though. This sounds a lot like a book I spent years looking for I found a nice description of it online about halfway down the page. Sun-bleached illustrations by Ian Wallace are intended to convey the shimmering heat and noon-day mirage of the African landscape. In this Bantu tale from Africa, a humble tortoise saves his hungry animal friends. Only those who know the name of the tree can reach its fruit. When haughty Gazelle and Elephant fail to bring the tree's name all the way back from the king, Tortoise attempts the task.
On his journey, Tortoise repeats the name over and over until he reaches the foot of the tree, where the branches respond by bending down to the waiting animals. An enjoyable retelling conveying a theme common to folktales - effort and dedication succeed over talent and pride. Charles Keeping's running lion, prancing ox and snapping alligator add to the delight of this collection.
The contents are similar to the other identical title, but not quite. Three tales are from India. The illustrations, unfortunately, are annoyingly generic. Other than that, the collection is unique and quite good.
The Lieutenant's Bargain by Regina Jennings, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
I am not sure about the secret language part, but Ruth Sawyer's Enchanted Schoolhouse has to do with an Irish lad bringing a leprechaun to America! Might be worth a look! I can't identify the book but was wondering if it might be one of Patricia Lynch's many books possibly one of her Brogeen books. It is technically a boggart that stows away with them on the ship, but I remember thinking that the illustrations or description made him sound like a leprechaun.
I don't remember him speaking in code, but that doesn't mean he didn't. I think he travels with them because the woods are being torn down to make a road. He comes to America and is really freaked out. Magic happens when he smokes his pipe. Irish boggart [like a leprechaun] goes to America - secret code - every 10th word gives the message. She's been writing since the early '70s. Thanks for your e-mail. The reply certainly sounds promising and I am keen to find more information about " The Magic Toy Shop " as it could well be the play that I recall.
A search on the internet uncovered a play by Patricia Clapp called something like "T he Toys That Took Over Christmas " about some toys in a toy shop that were brought to life, but was advertised as being a 10th anniversary performance, which dates it to Perhaps Patricia Clapp has written several plays along similiar lines -- the play I recall was performed by us as seven or eight year olds in about or As well as groups of toys having their own songs, I seem to recall a toy train taking all the toys to a location outside the toy shop.
Pinocchio had a leading role, but I am pretty sure that this was not a musical adaptation of the Pinocchio story. Hopefully someone might have details about " The Magic Toy Shop ". Thank You! I have actually found out the answer, which is quite different from what I expected it to be. Eventually I managed to find an e-mail address for my old primary school of 25 years ago, and wrote to ask about the play I remembered. After making various enquiries, the Principal wrote me and said that the play I recall was written by a group of teachers after they had gathered ideas from the children, and incorporated various popular songs.
They called it The Magic Toybox , but it is no longer known if a script exists or ever did exist. It's great to have an answer after wondering about this for so long. I just picked this one up for the store. It's a Scholastic paperback in G condition well-loved but the title is not that common , copyright Sticker removal mark from spine and homemade? See Solved Mysteries for details the book doesn't cover! Two children enter the New York subway and suddenly find themselves in a time tunnel that takes them back three hundred years to New Amsterdam where they watch history in the making and compare colonial and modern ways of life.
This is on the Solved Mysteries page. Caroline Emerson, The Magic Tunnel. Thank you for your comments on TheMagic Tunnel, one of my two favorite childhood stories. The mysterious adventure of the storybook children transported from then-present day New York to New Amsterdam via the underground system captivated me and in hindsight, greatly contributed to my own move to New York in , to find adventure, mystery, and, of course, magic.
I'm pretty sure this is it.
It has your Jupiter poem on page 64 , but it's copyright The cover is dark blue with a picture of a man covered in stars. It has cool deco-ish illustrations by Luxor Price. Roy Rockwood, Great Marvel series , A long shot, but a series running concurrently with Tom Swift was the Great Marvel series. Some of the earlier titles in the series are available in full text at Project Gutenberg, so they can be checked easily.
It would appear the mystery is solved - I can't imagine that poem showing up in more than one book! Now I have to find a copy!! Thanks so much!!! Lewis, The Silver Chair. I think this might be the one you are looking for. Tolkien, Hobbit, Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Has to be too easy. There were 4 books in the original series, published late 's - early 's. A youth gets caught up in a war between the people of his world,including elves, dwarves, etc.
While following the dwarves to safety after a battle, he finds armor and weapons that turn out to be enchanted. His friend is apprenticed to a magician hence the title of the book. Brooks, Terry, The Sword of Shannara, It's a long shot, given the date, but there are elves, dwarves, a magic sword and high adventure! It is neither C S Lewis nor Tolkein. I have just finished reading Sword of Shanarra and can rule that one out. I have acquired the Feist: Magician Apprentice, and this one looks promising.
Raymond Feist, Magician: Apprentice , is definitely the one. My thanks for solving this mystery. The two children in it enter other worlds through a doorway in the attic which connects their houses, and one of the worlds has a red, dying sun. R8 is definetely The Magician's Nephew.
The book G5 isn't remotely like The Magician's Nephew. I know the book being refererred to in R It's The Magician's Nephew , the first book in C. Lewis 's Chronicles of Narnia. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in the series. Lewis , and is part of the Narnia series. I actually loved these books as a child and recently re-read them, and the plot described in R8 is the same as in The Magician's Nephew. All the Narnia books are worth a second look. The Chronicles of Narnia. Macmillan, Complete series of seven books.
Book Club hardback editions from the sixties see image. Magoose's Grocery , 's. I know this book well. This was a Parent's magazine book club book. H The Magpie's Nest, which shows up in many collections. Here's Joseph Jacobs' edition. I'm not sure which edition you're looking for or if indeed you remember one in an anthology, which broadens the scope considerably. But this is certainly the folk story you're looking for. There are some little differnces, but the general plot line is the same The island and the teacher I agree with the person who thought the answer might be " The Magus" by John Fowles.
Just to give a few more details that might help, the protagonist is Nicholas Urfe. The old man is Conchis. The daughters are Lily and Rose. And there is another woman, who is in the end Nicholas's true love, named Alison. This book was made into a film as well. Conchis, a wealthy estate owner.
John Fowles, The Magus. The affair gets more serious than Nicholas can stand, so he leaves her to take a position as an English instructor at the Lord Byron School in the Greek island of Phraxos. Bored, depressed, disillusioned, and overwhelmed by the Mediterranean island, Nicholas contemplates suicide, then takes to long solitary walks.
On one of these walks he stumbles upon the wealthy Greek recluse Maurice Conchis, who may or may not have collaborated with the Nazis during the war and apparently lives alone on his island estate. Inez Irwin, Maida's Little Shop. She makes friends in the nieghborhood, one of whom turns out to be her nanny's grandson from Ireland. Only I think the diamond was in a necklace Emberley, Ed.
This sounds like it could be any of the many drawing books by Ed Emberley. This definitely matches the description, although there may be others as well. I adored this book--you really could make a whole little world, without any particular drawing talent. Have you looked at the Ed Emberly drawing books? There are many and they are in the right time frame.
Ed Emberley, Make a World. From description, most likely this one of his many books. Finally back in print. It's one of my favorite gifts for children in elementary school--this book, a big blank book, and a set of markers, with the invitation to "make a world. My favorite is a child who made an atlas of his "planet. Not sure who was the solver but, I thank you!!!
I saw the inquiry about a book with the saying "hay foot, straw foot, left foot, right foot. The author is Jan Margo. All I remember about this book is a little boy who would march around with a paper hat on his head and chant "hayfoot, strawfoot" as he marched. One I read around about a little boy who would march around with a paper hat singing "Hayfoot, Strawfoot. His sergeant, also a country fellow, asks him if he can tell hay from straw. Of course he can, any durn fool can do that!
So Sarge ties a wisp of hay to one foot and straw to the other, and drills him by calling 'hay-foot, straw-foot' instead of 'left, right, left'. His only companions are a dog named Brogla an her puppy Rags. I was enquiring about a book my family read 30 years ago. It was about a dog named "Rags" who loves his owner, a rancher, very much but is not appreciated by his owner because he is not pure-bred. At one point, the owner's two dobermans? Just after Rags runs off, a boy on the ranch runs up to the owner and tells him the other two dogs started the fight and crying tells him how much Rags loves him.
The owner is unable to find Rags no matter how much he looks for him. Finally, they meet in a blizzard and Rags almost dies getting the owner to safety. Then while Rags is dying the owner lays down with him and tells him over and over how sorry he is and Rags finally gets better. Bannon, Laura. Make Room For Rags. Houghton Mifflin, Illustrated by Vee Guthrie. When the small dog Rags appeared at the farmhouse in the middle of a storm, the family knew they would have to make room for her, for a short time, anyway.
Danny hoped that the place could be permanent, but the more Rags teased the kittens and chased the chickens, the slimmer the chances seemed to be. The description sounds exactly like a book that my teacher read to me in 6th grade, approximately, It was about a man kept in a box in Vietnam and I think the local boy helps him escape to a cave. Dunn, Marylois, The Man in the Box, I am enjoying rereading it very much. I read that story over and over in eighth grade ! It made me want to learn fencing, though I never did.
I keep thinking it is Richard or Robert somebody. If anyone can track down the literature textbook it is in, that would help me solve an earlier book stumper I sent in about a boy named P. This description sounds just like a short story I too had to read for an English class in junior high! The point is that he does this so that the other students won't learn to look up to the arrogant, conflict-loving fencer and come to think of him as the "better" fencer, but instead realize that a peace-loving person could still be the better fighter if need be.
The only problem is, Googling "A Man of Peace" coupled with "short story" doesn't yield any results, so perhaps I've got the title wrong. I'm still thinking about that fencing story now it's driving ME crazy! It was about a fencing master dedicated to the art of fencing who has a student who only fences for the brutality he can put into his game. Nimoy played one of Mr.
Faulkner's students. The story was later remade starring James Mason in Mr. Faulkner's role. Faulkner directed the fencing in this one, and doubled for Mason. This time, the bad fencing student was patterned more along the line of James Dean, as Dean was the reigning "delinquent" at the time. It looks like the story I remember may also have been made into a tv drama. But I don't know if this is related to the solution sought by the stumper poster, or if it will help the detective work.
Lawrence Williams, A Man of Peace , The textbook is out of print, but I was able to find numerous used copies. Someone on one of my loops heard about our query and emailed me. They said this is definitely the book. Looks charming! Thanks anyway!! First Edition, Hardcover "A man who lives at the edge of the woods discovers that he need not rely on the store for a supply of good things to eat.

H6 hunger walk: a bit more on the suggested story by Krasilovksy - "A story about a man and his cat who live at the edge of the woods and buy everything to eat from the store. When his friends goes on vacation and he runs out of food, he finds he can live on the garden food he finds in the woods. The cover of the book is white, though, not yellow, with a picture of a plump balding man with a hat and apron, flipping pancakes while his cat looks on.
He's saved and learns his lesson though when it rains and he puts everything outside to get clean at once. What a great site Illustrated by Barbara Cooney. Scholastic, , 4th paperback printing, Trade paperback size, some wear, but a clean copy. A man wakes up one day without his head. He carves out substitutes from vegetables - I remember a parsnip and perhaps a pumpkin. But everyone laughs, so he rejects the vegetables. He carves a head out of wood, and that's better, but he still wants his head back.
So a young boy, who is making a ball out of tightly wound rags says he can get the head back. He hits the man with the ball, and the man wakes up with his head back. Story is about a man who wakes up without his head, tries a bunch of things as substitutes including a parsnip, which for whatever reason is etched in my memory.
Possibly published by Bobbs-Merrill, since my dad used to work for them and get books through them. More on the Solved Mysteries page. Paul Gallico, The Man who was Magic, The title isn't "Adam", but the protagonist's name is, and the plot fits. Searching on Google will get you several synopses. I'm pretty sure about this one.

These sound like the Mandie series, published by Bethany House. Probably more than 30 titles in the series by now, and still in print as far as I know.
They're sort of Nancy Drew-type mysteries with an inspirational twist. Set in the NC mountains, although Mandie travels a lot in her adventures. Lois Leppard, Mandie and the Secret Tunnel. I am positive that you're looking for the Mandie books. The series starts with Mandie and the Secret Tunnel.

I'm sure you'll get several other responses to this one, but O20 definitely sounds like Mandy by Julie Andrews Edwards.
Edwards, Julie Andrews, Mandy , , reprinted Really, what does Mandy have to worry about? So it comes as a surprise even to Mandy when a small restlessness begins to grow in her. This lonely ache sets her to wandering farther afield, and leads her to a startling and wonderful discovery over the orphanage wall--a very old, very small, seemingly abandoned cottage. Embarking on a clandestine domestic fantasy involving gardening tools and soap flakes, Mandy finds herself being less than honest about where and how she's spending her days.
Holding her secret closer and closer to her heart, this imaginative dreamer inadvertently endangers her reputation--and her life.

Her 10 year-old daughter also loved it. Julie Edwards , aka Julie Andrews, Mandy.
Wow, a stumper I actually know, and a book I love! You're describing Julie Andrews's first book for children. Hope you enjoy it now as much as you did as a child. This reminds me of a book that I have been looking for too. Is there some kind of windowseat with old curtains that she curls up in and reads while she looks out over the delapidated yard? Edwards, Julie, Mandy. I think she wrote it for her daughter. I just unpacked my copy from childhood books. Julie Edwards, Mandy, This is a wonderful book, written by the actress Julie Andrews writing under her real name Edwards husband is Blake Edwards.
Mandy the orphan finds a deserted cottage in the woods with one room covered in seashells all over the walls and ceiling. She fixes up the house and restores the neglected garden, and ultimately is adopted by the family who owns the land and cottage. It's a wonderful story. This fits the description, but I seem to recall from another stumper here or elsewhere that there was another book with a similiar theme.
Worth taking a look at Mandy, though. Mandy is rescued from her cottage when she falls ill, and eventually is adopted by the family whose estate it's on. From the flyleaf: "For ten-year-old Mandy, the old stone orphanage on the outskirts of the pretty village was the only home she remembered Then one day, when Mandy climbed over the high orphanage wall to explore, there it was--a tiny deserted cottage in a clearing in the woods.
Here at last was her very own, very secret home. She would tidy it up and plant a garden. All through the spring, summer and fall, Mandy worked for--and sometimes "borrowed"--the little things she needed for it. And to guard her secret, she even lied A girl goes exploring and finds an abandoned cottage.
She cuts overgrown folliage back and starts tending to the garden. She steals some soap to clean the dusty place. The fireplace or maybe all the walls in one room are decorated with shells. See Solved Mysteries. Dandelion Cottage. This is a book about a little girl who fixes up an old house. Don't know if it's the same one or not. I am not positive that this is the right book, but the part about the deserted cottage is correct, and I believe I remember a room lined with shells. Can I Be?
