I have the paper back bought through a book club in ish as a child. Garth Nix, Shade's Children. I read this about a year ago, and can't find my copy now to check details, but it sounds a lot like it. However the date given is so may be too late to be the right book. On that Sad Birthday, the child is the object of an obscene harvest - his brains and muscles are used to construct machine-like creatures whose sole purpose is to kill.
The mysterious Shade - once a man, but now more like the machines he fights - recruits the few children lucky enough to escape. He gives them food, shelter, and the training they need to fight the Overlords. But Shade's sent many children out on mission - and fewer of them are coming back. By luck, cunning, and skill, four of Shade's children - Ella, Drum, Ninde and Gold-Eye - have come closer than any to discovering the source of the Overlords' power - and the key to their downfall. But the closer the children get, the more ruthless Shade seems to become Alexander Key, Escape to Witch Mountain, The story is about two orphans, Tony and Tia, who have moderate paranormal abilities.
After their "granny", the elderly woman who took them in when they were very little, dies, they are placed by social services in a juvenile detention home under grim, unwholesome conditions. Both have repressed memories of their past, but discover clues -- a map and a huge amount of money -- hidden in the bottom of a leather box owned by Tia.
When a man claiming to be the brother of their deceased father shows up at the detention center to take custody of them, they instinctively know he is not their uncle and has ulterior motives. With the assistance of a tough-nut inner-city Irish priest, the pair run away, following the map's route leading towards the Blue Ridge Mountains. As their memories begin to return, they realize that they are actually of extraterrestrial origin, and in the end they find their way to their own people. Alexander Key, Return from Witch Mountain. Actually I think it's the sequel.

Tony and Tia have been living among their own people and improving their psychic abilities. On a visit to Los Angeles they are separated. Tony uses his gift to stop a couple of accidents and is seen by people who work for a mad scientist's experimental lab where he has kidnapped a number of telekinetic kids to work for him this idea was also used by Dean R. Koontz, in "Door to December". Tia enlists the help of a street gang to find and free Tony.
The psychic elements and the story in general are much less subtle and more "showy" than the original naturally, since it started out as a movie. The details match up -- the boy uses his telekinetic powers to prevent an accident and draws the attention of a mad scientist who wants to exploit the gifts of psychic children, etc. You might look this up on amazon. The film version starred Bette Davis and Christopher Lee, and is regarded as high camp, but Alexander Key did write the novelization you may have read, and put his own unique touches in.

The book includes "Diary of a Cadet Aboard the Christian Radich" [sail-training ship], along with diagrams of a square-rigger, old sailors' superstitions, nautical terms, and the explanation of sailing a square-rigged ship. It is definitely "a thin paperback with a sailboat on the front" -- the book is light blue and the sailboat is the Christian Radich under full sail, at an angle that makes her look tall and thin. Hyla M. Clark text , introductions by Frank O. What year did you go to school? Could this be the book you're looking for?
This book was published in association with Operation Sail, which celebrated the Bicentennial of the signing of the Declaration of Independence by gathering tall ships from around the world and sailing them into New York Harbor in time for the Independence Day celebration. Over 50 full-color photographs, plus additional photographs in black and white. Paperback, with a picture of a sailing ship against the Manhattan skyline on the cover, blue borders.

I have recently remembered more details. Female love interest is named Florence. She has several brothers and one is named Gregory. He marries an Indian girl. From an online review: "The story is about a young girl who moves with her family to an isolated area where the only contact with the outside world is by sailing schooner that stopped two or three times a year with supplies, news and mail brought by a handsome young captain.
Enright, Elizabeth, Tatsinda , Try Tatsinda , by Elizabeth Enright. It is a fairly short book, 65 pages.
Girl lives in a magical kingdom. The trolls mine "greb" inside the mountain and don't go outside during the day. The girl's kingdom does shine in the sun. There are pictures showing crystal palaces and houses. I hope this helps. The main character is a young child and is living in basically the real world.
No crystal palace, no kingdom, just an ordinary kid. Also, I don't remember anything like a kidnapping taking place at all. It was the troll mountain or treasure far away that belonged to the trolls that was shining. Thanks for the guess anyway though. I'll keep checking back. I want to read it to my kids so badly! Conroy, Pat, The Water is Wide. This is a semi-autobiographical story written by Conroy later, made into a movie with John Voight, Conrak. He travels to Yamacraw, an island off the coast of South Carollina, to teach very poor, isolated, African-American children.
I don't know when it was originally published, but the movie came out in Pat Conroy, The Water is Wide , The date is wrong, and the location, but the plot is similar. Thanks so much for the help! Thanks so much to you and the other responders for this wonderful service. This is definitely the book being sought. It is set in the s, in Kentuckys rural tobacco country. He has pupils on the census, but only a third attend classes: the rest are needed for farmwork. The students have to purchase their own books and classes are held during the summer so that the district doesn't have to pay for textbooks or coal to heat the schoolhouse.
Stuart is also in charge of maintaining the school grounds painting the school, putting lime in the outhouses and teaching his barefooted pupils to maintain public health no drinking from the same dipper, no chewing tobacco on the school grounds. For all of this work, he earns about one-fourth as much as a worker at the local steel mill who has a third grade education! The Water is Wide has a similar theme, but it is set about forty years later in an impoverished rural community in South Carolina.
This sounds a bit like Dorothy Edwards' ' The Witches and the Grinnygog ' , but that has a few more children, and the word in the title is 'Grinnygog', not 'Pucq'. Popular title! James R Padgett, illus. Hi - I'm the one who originally posted this stumper. Today, someone sent me a website for out of print books and I found it. It's on it's way so hopefully soon I'll know if this is the right book or not.
Thank you!!! They were long enough that when I read them for my competitions, it took about 10 minutes. Agapeland, The Music Machine , , reprint. Could this maybe be the Music Machine series from Agapeland? I remember them when I was growing up as Tapes or LPs with an accompanying book and each story was about a fruit of the spirit ie love, patience, self-control. Sorry I can't elaborate anymore. My memory's fuzzy on the details and I don't have any of them handy.
Maybe check out www. Thank you so much for your suggestion, but unfortunately it's not The Music Machine. But I really appreciate your kind input! Never give up on Google! After trying numerous combinations of search words, I finally found the book. I was able to buy it on-line, and even though I had last read it roughly 50 years ago, good grief!!
Even though the solution did not come from Book Stumper, the site is wonderful!. And it seems that everyone around her has a stake in her success. So, when Kathy is presented with an opponent she can't beat, and a tragedy occurs, everyone's motives are questioned. They all want victory badly-but would anyone really kill for it? T Fish is Fish by Leo Lionni? Not sure if what you're looking for is fiction or nonfiction. Lionni's book is more about the fish that is friends with a tadpole. They both grow and learn to accept their differences - especially the fish's inability to travel outside the water.
I like the echoes to The Five Chinese Brothers here, but there are no travellers in that tale. Not a solution, but there are variations on this theme. This might be the one- three travelers save a princess from a wizard by using their special skills. Gerald J. Pyle , Wonder Tales Retold, The king sends his son to find a princess, and of course he must rescue her from a wicked magician. Long can get as tall as he needs to, Broad can expand and suck up rivers in their way, and Sharpsight can break up rocks with his vision and well as see where the princess is being held.
Allan Eckert, Song of the Wild , This is the book about the kid who can "throw" his mind into other animals. What a cool gift! James Otis, Toby Tyler. I haven't read this book, but I know it's about a boy who runs away to join the circus. In the 60's, my sister had an edition from Disney which I think was a smaller hardback version. I think the cover had a dark pink background Frances Frost, Windy Foot series , late s, approximate. I think you may be looking for one of the Windy Foot books. Boy named Toby, Shetland pony named Windy Foot.
Several stories about farm life in the late s early s. Schmidt, Stanley, Tweedlioop , Tweedlioop - who certainly has an unusual name - is a peaceful alien who happens to look just like the squirrels on earth. It was a novel for adults, however. Perhaps it's your missing book? It was reprinted in , with a different cover. If it isn't the first suggestion, it could be this book, about another unusually named alien starting with T.
Is there really a twirlup? Laura Bannon makes this ambitious little animal so believable that you'll feel sure he exists. Dippy, the kangaroo rat, who tells the twirlup's story, patiently puts up with being called Drippy, Chippy and Snippy. Almost without knowing how, he finds himself working on the twirlup's wonderful scheme to launch a manned moon shot, or perhaps it's accurate to say a twirlupped moon shot. Swiftly, a lizard, unluckily becomes part of the project.
He has never been one to keep a secret, and thus the climax of the twirlup's work and inventiveness has a more unusual audience than any ever gathered at Cape Kennedy. Here's an amusing spoof on our ambitions to get to the moon. What's more, it introduces a whole colony of little desert creatures, Laura Bannon's lively imagination is at its best in this new tale, and her original sketches have been carefully completed by Will Gordon, a talented artist in his own right Miriam E. Mason, Smiling Hill Farm , Hi, this book might be the answer to the T poster.
Story of a pioneering family from Virginia who settles down in Indiana, their children grow up, etc. Lots of illustrations in black, red, and white. My children read this book when I homeschooled them and they enjoyed it. This one is from the Alice and Jerry series of primers, although it doesn't feature the Alice and Jerry characters. Engine Whistles. Row, Peterson, Worn, G-.
It actually has 4 squirrels on the cover. Long shot, but who knows. Since nobody has suggested this one yet, I'll try. This is a book detailed picture book format, like the rest of Holling's books about a cottonwood tree in the Southwest, that plays a part in all kinds of events that go on around it. At the end it gets made into a yoke for oxen, and still has the marks, bullet holes etc. Holling Clancy Holling, Tree in the Trail. No, this isn't right but thank you for the suggestion. The book was not a "picture" book although it may have had some artwork.
Anyway, the tree was much, much bigger. I think so big that many people would have to stand around it to hold hands around its trunk. This might be the book you're looking for. I have a copy of it and it does mention people carved their initials and stuff in it, and the tree is very important to the people in the town. There are a few illustrations in the copy I have but it isn't a picture book. Thornton, Jane Foster, Close Harmony , When Harrison Hughes has a near-fatal accident, the band is left without a lead guitarist so super-talented Josh is chosen as his replacement, but will there be a place in the band for Harrison when he recovers and will Josh be Lexi's ticket to romance?
It's 2 in the Electric High series. One of the Cathy books by Catherine Woolley maybe? Titles are: 1. A Room for Cathy , 2. Miss Cathy Leonard , 3. Cathy Leonard Calling , 4. Cathy's Little Sister , 5. Chris in Trouble , 6. Cathy Uncovers a Secret. My guess is it's 3 or 4. Woolley is also the author of the Ginnie series.
Andrews , Flowers In The Attic, Cathy, along with her mother, brothers, and sister go to live with her grandparents when her father dies. They go by train. At the end of the book, Cathy, her sister, and one of her brothers get on a train and run away. There are five books in the series. I posted this inquiry-- it is not the V. Andrews book. I am not sure if it is one of the Cathy books as I have been unable to find summaries on any of them : I'm actually wondering if the girl's name was Cathy--??? Not sure about this one but thought it might be worth a look.
The girl is actually in Switzerland at a boarding school, not France. Oh, I think I remember this one too though not the name of the book, unfortunately. Pauline is one of four girls, growing up in France. She falls in love with an older man who is an artist. Her father is a doctor. Her youngest sister Cecile gets on a quiz show, and wins support for an aging horse loved by an older sister Bernadette.
Rosamond du Jardin, Wait For Marcy. This is Wait For Marcy , late forties or very early fifties. Hallowell, P. Was already under V Could this be it? The title isn't similar, but Scholastic reprints often changed the hardcover title to something "more appealing". The summary is "After thirteen-year-old Ben and his pet coati Frito join a group of archaeologists looking for Indian artifacts in the Arizona desert, they help expose a ring of thieves. I don't know if they featured the same character, but it might be worth looking into.
I don't know the name of this story, but it was a Twilight Zone episode, so it is probably in one of the published Twilight Zone anthologies. Rod Serling wrote a lot of those stories himself, so it might be worth doing a search under his name. This is a Twilight Zone episode and must have appeared in an anthology of stories based on the show. It has probably appeared in various sci-fi anthologies. Actually, while many of the stories broadcast on "The Twilight Zone" were also rewritten as short stories and published in collections credited to Serling, I can't find that "A Hundred Yards Over the Rim" was among them, at least under that title.
Aside from the collections credited to Serling most or all of which were first published as Bantam mass-market pb originals , at least two collections were written by Walter B. Since I don't recognize the titles of the stories in that collection, I suspect he retitled the stories he adapted and this may possibly be among them. Full contents of both are listed online. Descriptions online look like it's got spiral binding and 4 moveable pull tabs, but sorry - no plot description. Can you keep on searching for T??

Cover is yellow, with picture of Tim, Debby, a baby, a couple of geese, a dog, and a pig. Francesca Simon, The Topsy Turvies. Probably not your book as it is a picture book from but it is about a Topsy Turvy Family.
I don't suppose you could be thinking about the books about the Peterkins family by Lucretia Hale? If you have any more detailed information about the content of the book- what the family was like that made them "topsy-turvy"- it would help in the search. Brock, Emma L. New York: Knopf, 86 p. Could this possibly be the Fairy book series by Andrew Lang? These had pictures on the front, and were different colors.
I don't think these were grouped by the age of the reader, though. You may be talking about Alan Mendelsohn the Boy from Mars , which was pretty far out for a kid's book if I remember correctly. It involved a couple of outcasts, telekinesis and a few pranks. Shusterman, Neil, The Shadow Club , , copyright. This is a long shot, but I think this may be the book you're looking for.
Richard M Koff, Christopher , , approximate.

These do have kids traveling through time with a professor. The drawings I remember were more cartoon-ish than epic, but I saw the American reprinted, reformatted editions.
Maybe the original British editions were different? Thank you for your answers!
The time travelers went all the way back to early earth and then stopped in several different eras. Mostly age of the dinosaurs. Each section had a great many animals illustrated.

Someone out there has this book or remembers it! Do you remember if there was a character in the story who acted as a narrator? This person came out on the stage between different periods in time. If this is the book you are thinking of, I think the book had a red or black cover, or a red and black cover.

Cockrell also wrote Shadow Castle. Sarah Perkins is hired to be the schoolteacher in an 's western frontier town where women are scarce. Every single schoolteacher has ended up getting married. Sarah is hired because she is "plain" and therefore considered unlikely to get married. But she is smart and has ideas that revolutionize the town and her students. Catherine Marshall, Christy, , approximate. Could you mean Christy rather than Sara? The tv show series Sara was about a legal team as in lawyers. Christy is about a teacher in TN in and is very similar to what you described with the exception that the name doesn't change.
Christy was made into a TV-movie and television series in Description from the net: "A small 19th century frontier town has so few single women that every time someone is hired to teach at the local school she marries quickly and leaves the children without a teacher. Determined to avoid this situation, the school board decides to hire someone so plain she will remain single. Thus, Sarah Perkins, a single lady from the East Coast ventures out West, without knowing why she was chosen for the job.
In a small western town in the 's, where women are a scarce commodity, the school board is desperate to find a teacher who won't get married, so they set out to hire an unattractive woman. What they get is Sarah Perkins, who is plain, but far from shy. She is, in fact, a warm, interesting woman with a gift for loving, and an inspired teacher as well.
