It's a Scholastic paperback in G condition (well-loved but the title is not that common), copyright 1966. I was JUST thinking about trying to locate my own copy to read to my 4 year old daughter and looked it up on Google only to find that they are reprinting it as a 40th Anniversary edition! She begins to look into the cups of her training bra for answers ... Children are encouraged to interact with the exciting story. I'm guessing it's at least 40 years old. When lightning splits an old oak tree, a brother and sister discover Merlin who has been sleeping inside the tree for many centuries.

Then there's Nancy Drew, who I always believed was the girly version of the Hardy Boys. There they quite unexpectedly stumble upon an unknown statue by none other than Michelangelo…or is it? Could this be one of Sid Fleischman's McBroom books? (Probably Here Comes McBroom -- the Booklist review refers to words freezing in midair.) The family had numerous children: WillJillHesterChesterPeterPollyTimTomMaryLarryandLittleClarinda. Played straight with secondary characters as virtually all of them - Marcus, Aristo, Diana and Pulchra - are married by the epilogue.

O. by David Adler Cam Jansen Mystery Series: Cam Jansen is a young girl with bright red hair who has the amazing and unique ability to remember entire crime scenes with her photographic memory.

The book related the adventures (magical?) of the children in the family. Sam Limner hides his grandfather's magic notebook on his bookshelf between Treasure Island and Danny Dunn and the Homework Machine! Most frightening of all is the face in a pool: it stares up at Susan through the water, then disappears! 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 1975 or 1976. The story was so well written that I am now trying to find it again - I would be grateful for any clues about the book's name.

Sorry about hurried e-mail but this one is right. Mystery elements are skimped, and the book is mainly a preachment against the evils of slavery in Ancient Rome. I'm sure the answer can be found at the Prehistoric Fiction Bibliography. All I really remember is that a girl finds a mirror (maybe in her new home ?) and when she looks in it, she notices the room in the reflection is different. And although her adoptive family members weren't pioneers, they were rural, farming people...

However, upon his return, he and Bat are faced with a larger problem: a series of mysterious bank robberies which they are able to trace back to the wicked Weasel and his gang. For example, one recent story dealt with a mysterious apparition that turned out to be glowing swamp gas. Both of the stories mentioned are in this book, the one with the child lying on the floor looking under the bed where the couple, a pair of alien observers, have returned home is "Something bright" and the one where only human flesh will nourish the alien is "Food to all flesh".

I read it no later than 1968, probably '67 or '66. If so, Hegel’s your man and this book, a classic of German idealism and unquestionably one of the most important works of modern philosophy, is a fine place to start. 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. Book was the same size as a Nancy Drew Book-about the same # of pages.

Could this be Mordecai Gerstein's The Room (1985)? I also remember vaguely something about purple: in one of the titles? or perhaps just the color of the cover. You’ll discover titles such as Take our free A to Z Mysteries Series Checklist to your local library! Classic editions in the series have just been relaunched by Scholastic. Twelve-year-old Londoner Agatha Mistery surrounds herself with a cast of sleuths who solve well-plotted mysteries like this one, which involves a missing Egyptian artifact.
