I'm looking for a children's book 4th, 5th grade where the main character is a boy who lives in a room in a hotel that his father manages. The curse went along the lines of "when this lump of peat burns away, the child will die and go to clay". There were other stories as well like the one about an australian aboriginal medicine man warning a construction crew against building a road through a cursed thicket of trees, of course tragedy strikes and the road is built around the trees in the end, also one about a tree in africa that was known to the locals to strangle anyone who wandered to close at night.

Another with a mummified cat being taken from a tomb only for its spirit to escape its binds through a hole in its throat shocking the collector that brought it along. Another with a boy somewhere in england disappearing seemingly into thin air atop a hill when he was going to milk the cows or something, but his parents and the locals could hear his disembodied voice crying out for help over the following weeks until finally it fades away entirely. There were also 2 stories about ufo's that i can remember involving one plane being slammed into the ground by what seemed like an invisible hand, and another where some airmen keeping watch over a plane graveyard when the ufo appears and one of them decides to hop into a still functional ww2 plane to chase it only to nearly "ram himself up its tailpipe" when it suddenly stops.
It even had a variation of the girl with the ribbon around her neck that involved an artist who couldn't get enough of painting her portrait. The cover of the book was a mix of red and purple color with illustrations of at least 3 of these stories, ribbon girl, medicine, and mummy cat in a sort of collage. I forgot if it involved the term "ghost stories" or "spine chilling" or anything of the sort, there were at least 10 stories that i can remember but i'm pretty sure there were 13 altogether. It was a really fun read and my copy was so old it ended up deteriorating almost completely and my mother apparently threw it out.

I'm looking for a book that has a girl floating upside down on the cover. Looking for a Halloween children's book with a witch in a green mask and maybe a skeleton on the front cover. This is so far fetched, but hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about. There is a group of kids in the middle of nowhere and they have to fend for themselves. The main character is a boy and he has two friends: a girl and a boy. I'm pretty sure him and the girl had something going on Anyways, I remember there was a part where they went underground and there was this giant worm or snake or something that was living underground.
That's all I remember. That's it. Searching for a chapter book I used to read as a young girl in elementary school.
I would say anywhere between the years of I vaguely remember the cover of the book picturing a young blonde girl in the foreground, holding a book or notebook of some sort. If I recall correctly she had about shoulder length hair with bangs and a headband on. On the cover it looks as though she is in the woods and she is begrudgingly looking back at what looks like a wooden clubhouse.
Get A Copy
In this clubhouse I believe can't remember if this is what was actually on the cover or just my imagination there are two girls looking out the window at her. One I think is African-American and the other is a red head. I think the story revolves around the blonde girl and her connection to the clubhouse. I believe her grandfather built it and she used to have tea parties in there and basically go there as her escape from the rest of the world. I also vaguely remember something about a key? Thanks in advanced if you have any info pertaining to this long, lost book!

Young children's book about a girl who goes to visit someone and there's a tapestry on the wall with a girl. She goes into the tapestry and has an adventure. I'm really sorry but this is literally all I can remember about it! It's not the boy and the lion on the wall but kind of similar.
More juvenile though. I think probably from the early s. Part of a series I think, no author that I can remember and unsure of the publishing house. So very helpful of me! There was some dangerous older characters they would come across that were up to no good, one was a thief and a murderer. So when the kids discover his crime, he chases them through the tunnels, as they try to get away and find help.
One girl was weaker, had some sort of health issues, and there was a boy who was her protector.
I took this hardcover book out of my school library in , but it seemed like an older book that had been around for awhile. There were a few small black illustrations mixed in with the text. A 2nd book was about a little witch who was best friends with a mermaid, she lived in a world that was separate from "the real world" of a little human girl. I believe the witch lived in a cave that had a water pool, so the mermaid could pop up to visit.
THE WOLVES OF GOD
The little girl considered the witch her friend, but there was some sort of separation between them, such as the girl could read about what was happening daily in the witch's life, but could not travel to that world. There were a few small black illustrations mixed in with the text, the drawings of the witch and mermaid was very simple round faces, dot eyes. This was a hardcover book that I read in , but I'm guessing it was published in the 60's or early 70's. When I was a kid, I had a book of funny poems that I absolutely loved.
I have no info on the book but remember that my favorite poem started: "When mom and dad had company, and left me all alone, I spoke to people everywhere, on the telephone. I spoke to guys in Tennessee and some in Newfoundland, and some who spoke in languages, I didn't understand Does aaaaanyone happen to recognize it and know the details of book name and author??
Google has not helped at all. I think my kiddo would get a kick out of the poems. At the end of the first book he took her back to her home to live a normal life. Letter to 5 wives. I'm looking for a fiction football book about a young gypsy lad who the coach of a local team wants in his side. I remember the boy had no boots and I think his name was Georgie. Her Dad went out on a hunt and ended up being killed by a beast. She went to avenge her father and successfully did so by slaying the beast. But to her surprise there was beast cub and she decided to care for it for it was now too an orphan.
Any idea what this book is called? The premise of the book is related to time travel and the only I can remember is a young boy looking for a cow that wondered off into the woods and came back close to death due to expedient aging only a few mins went by in the boys time. Looking for a Western romance book where a young couple was robbed, husband killed, pregnant wife raped baby loss, she was rescued from the men by a lone stranger she started to fall for the man when she was kidnapped again and eventually rescued again and the rescure killed the men.
I am looking for a natural birthing book; black and white images, not a lot of text which likened birth to a small ship out on the water. It was paperback and though thin was oversized. He also had a single condom that he kept hidden in his car and his girl friend was nerdy. The cover was red with a yellow silhouette of guy playing the bass. I'm looking for a book from the early 60's. The main character was a young boy that was always inventing things. He had a bike with a paper launcher for his paper route and an alarm on his bedroom door. I thought the title of this fiction book was Pro Quarterback.
I read it in the late 70's and early 80s. His father is a successful football coach and in a championship game he must play against his father's coached team. He struggles badly until he finally believes in himself.
