This is a kids book about a dog who lives alone and goes about his day, wakes up alone, eats breakfast alone, goes to the market alone and then somehow meets a little boy that lives alone and does all the same things the dogs does. This can make for some meaningful discussions about literature. To help pay for the cost, it makes sense to him that the Americans should help pay for the war debt by a series of taxes.

THE COVER MAY HAVE BEEN ROYAL BLUE. I am looking for a book that I took out of my grade school library around 1960. This tongue-in-cheek book describes what happens when future people (in the 4200's) uncover a long-buried motel, the Toot'n'C'Mon Motel. A lost race novel of sorts, as Dawn is from a forgotten valley with a group of Eohippus, Dawn horses." SOLVED: It's "Madeline Is Sleeping" by Sarah Shun-lien Bynum, who teaches at UC San Diego (close!). Genre and Mystery writer Shannon Muir, who also administrates the blog THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF, gives personal insights on the field, how she became a part of it, and then the first year of launching a blog focused on it.

Not a solution but some assistance--the French and Latin words for beaver are the same, and the word is "castor". Scholastic, 1950, 4th paperback printing, 1971. Pierce Brosnan’s character shows up in the pilot episode to impersonate him. Deconstructed as she has absolutely no bearing on what to do - as nobody wants to discuss the murder as it practically destroyed the family - and is acting like her favourite fictional heroes, getting herself and others into unrelated trouble.

A delightful book that was read to me so many times that it literally fell apart. Other details I remember: it eats a cow out of a barn at night; it eats a camper after his fire goes out; and one policeman survives an encounter by giving into a sudden instinct to drop his gun and shine a flashlight on the thing that's chasing him in the dark, scaring it away with light.

I could not find a description, only the above information. The experience of Poe as required reading in school comes up again and again. The illustrations are based on original Tlingit motifs which may be why it seems surreal. Here's the description: "Story of Mr. Sobol is very good at capturing South Florida atmosphere. Garth Williams, The Adventures of Benjamin Pink, 1970. F/F- the book may have been a series of books. between 3 and 8 different books in the series? they were paperback novels. i am guessing they were printed between 1980 and 1988. i believe the author was male. the main memory is that all the books had very simple, black and white line-drawings of creepy but cute little creatures/monsters who were the characters of these fantasy stories. no humans in the stories (that i remember), the characters were these little creepy creatures. there were not illustrations on every page, but since they were a little more "grown-up" than regular children's picture books the illustrations were scattered on the first pages of each chapter and in random places throughout. if i remember right, the illustrations never took up a full page, but they appeared along with the text. overall, the pictures were cute but weird...like perhaps in a trippy sort of way. i think the plots were strange too. they were in the same section as early roald dahl novels: charlie, peach, marvelous medicine, etc. - therefore, they were thin paperback chapter-books. the author MAY have been european...like british or some other european country. it didn't seem classically american.
