So here's an easy one for the Stumper Magicians...? I stumbled on this while browsing the internet.

There was a party in the woods and the story followed all the animals to the gathering. Did Alves get any other infections when she was pregnant that may have caused the microcephaly? I write at HeatherSanders.com about faith and simplifying your desires so you can be content right here and right now I would describe the illustrations as stylized, with clothing and settings in a mishmash of styles from Elizabethan to Victorian. A powerful novel about the end of the world, the end times.

They returned to their Villisca, Iowa, home that evening. He and his sidekicks, his athletic sister and his Watsonesque best friend, solved cases from a treehouse headquarters. Molly's life is tied up in knots with career decisions, gossip, and a stalker. Superhero ABC: Bob McLeod is the brilliant mind behind this excellent work that includes all twenty six letters and a superhero for each one. Clearly the reference is to a book about the (real) Collyer brothers, Homer and Langley, who died in NYC in their packrat house in 1947.

Trixie Belden (and the rest of the Bobwhites) are teen detectives in the Hudson Valley. White with the tenderness of its cross-species friendship, as well as The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. I'm looking for a book I read as a young teen in the early-mid 1970's. The heroine is Mary Conroy, who marries Armen Neff despite the disapproval of her family. I sent in stumper B159 at the end of August, and checked religiously every week for two months to see if anyone had any ideas, but got discouraged when no one did.

O’Dell based this novel on an actual historical figure, known as The Lost Woman of San Nicolas, who lived on the island from 1835-1853. A crime has been committed at Freemont Street. Reading through the solved Bookstumpers I was also able to find the other two books I desperately wanted: Magic in the Park and No Flying in the House. After being shuffled through several foster homes, they end up with a woman named Relda Grimm. If it is a success, the others will follow.

I am not sure of the correct answer, but I'll throw out a few more guesses to help out whoever first posted the stumper: Alexander, Elsie M., Happy Family of Beechnut Grove; Story of Peter Gray Squirrel and Family (not sure if they travel however). Not really a mystery or puzzle to be solved, as there wouldn't be any one "correct" answer, but with a mysterious tone, and fairly sophisticated (not aimed at very young children, and I enjoyed it as an adult, my kids as middle schoolers - but it was in the children's picture book section at the library).

The peaches are canned peaches found in the mountains. I remember it having a purple checked bookcover (very loud design). Well-realized family relationships and Ted’s curious mental circuitry are just as compellingly drawn as the page-turning, contemporary mystery. Focusing on Stockholm, Trenter’s novels feature Harry Friberg, a photographer and detective who works closely with superintendent Vesper Johnson. The children have to learn to govern themselves, get food and supplies, and cope with groups of bullies.

Quite frankly, she doesn’t look like a detective at all. It sounds like Afternoon of the Elves to me, too. I still have my copy of this book!!! At first she is frightened of her aunt, but is won over as she becomes fascinated by the "mystery" of a lost doll, named Elizabeth, and is transported back in time. Zinn, who's "always looking" for mysteries, sees numerous unrealistic characters. "It seems difficult to get a story at a child's level, not a kid with an adult brain or thoughts," says Zinn.

There were also stories that I can't remember the names too: A cobbler and little elves that come out at night and make shoes for him. From reading the summaries and reviews online, yes, I am certain that is is Afternoon of the Elves. Hi - I remember reading a great book in elementary school (late '60's, early '70's) about a single father with hardly any money raising a couple of kids in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Rear endpaper torn, and p. 23 torn and mended with a xerox copy of the text glued into place (quite neatly, I must say, but obviously not original).
