The Children who Became the Sun and the Moon & the Fountain of Youth (Translated & Illustrated)
The main character I think has the magical ability of darkness or night, I can't really remember. Please please please help! I have been looking for this book for close to 20 years. I read it as a teenager in the 90's. It's not a Sweet Valley High book. The book is about two young teenage girls and each year their family's vacation at beach and their vacation homes are next to each other.
The girls are best friends and always look forward to see eaching other. The book is about the summer where one of the girls is growing up quicker than the other and she falls in love with a boy and the other girl feels left out. That's all I can remember. I just know I read that book so many times as a kid and for some reason I can't remember the title.
If anyone can help please email at katieabshire hotmail. Thank you in advance! Looking for a children's book from the 80's or 90's about a little girl who thinks the moon fell from the sky.
Once outside she discovers it's a dirty piece of metal. I think the book came from Discovery Toys. I am looking for a book, children's. Two troll looking characters. One can only look down, he is hunched over and one can only look up. They live outside and the story takes place on a hill. I want to say the names are Igor and Ingor. This is a long shot, but I'm looking for a book that I read as a child over ten years ago.
It was an illustrated book about two siblings who lived in a neighborhood. They are warned about this ice cream man? So kind of like hensel and grettle. Their grandma tells them to stop eating sweets from this guy who's head is in the shape of a round flat cookie like way and his skin tone isn't that of any regular person but they don't listen.
They eventually get fatter because they keep eating his sweets. In the end they stop and he leaves their neighborhood and the book ends with the author telling the reader to be careful because he could come to a neighborhood near you or even your neighborhood.

I've been going crazy trying to find this book. My email is coralrojas gmail. The book I am looking for is one where 4 kids go on a school trip, get struck by lightning then get weird powers. I'm trying to find this book I read as a teen. It was about a girl who was a queen or a hidden princess don't really remember that everyone feared because her power were so strong and dangerous until they got to know her. But they were afraid because of her powers she controls winter or ice and where they live its always cold however not sure whether if it was because of her powers or just regular weather.
Also war was coming and she would become there greatest weapon against the enemy. I also remember of her having a set back with her powers when she would use to much she will pass out and just sleep for a very long time. But that was like a thing that happened with everyone when they use there powers they don't know what there limited is or if they had any restrictions. Don't really remember anything else but just cant get the story out of my head and want to read it again. The book I am looking for is a science fiction short story. A man comes across an alien which then lives inside him and keeps him alive no matter what the injury.
At one point the man is supposedly killed by being shot? I am trying to remember the name of an illustrated book I had as a child in the early s. I vaguely remember that it featured traditional Russian architecture.
I don't remember the plot other than I think a guy in a Russian hat gets swallowed whole by an alligator or crocodile? I know it's not much to go on, but it popped into my mind and now it is making me crazy. I must have read the book a hundred times as a kid. I am looking for a book that I read about 10 years ago. It's about a woman who loves this book she is reading and loves the male protagonist of the story.
The book she is reading is a tragic story that follows the protagonist, I believe his name was Alexander, who is on a hunt to kill the vampire that murdered his family. The book she is reading ended on a cliffhanger and she is upset about this. She then suddenly sees the character Alexander real life and in the flesh, and also some other characters come into the real world including the vampire that killed his family. I am trying to find the book that I read years ago where the character's name was Rachel. Rachel had run away from home because her father was abusing her, later upon which she found out she was a twin and her mother gave her sister away.
In the meantime, she was picked up by this character named Annie who was using her by placing her in a brothel and taking her money while he went to school. In the end Rachel became pregnant, and Danny made her get rid of it, watching the abortion making Rachel sterile Rachel became angry move to Hollywood became a waitress at this restaurant changed her name to Beverly.
Because Rachel was homely she saved up her money and went and had plastic surgery done. Rachel van became wealthy because the owners of the restaurant left all of their belongings to her all the wild Rachel had been looking for both her mother and her adoptive sister whose name was later revealed to to be Christine Singleton.
Beverly then set up Danny for all of the wrongdoing he had done oh, by the way being a religious fanatic that he was and misleading people, to what she was arrested and he later attempted to hang himself which he botched. This was revealed in the second book which I believe was entitled Stars and it further in the second book explained Christine Singleton backstory.
Filipino Popular Tales
Can anyone tell me the title of these books? I'm trying to find a book. I believe the title was "Mother". I didn't get a chance to read it, but what I do remember reading from the back was that it was a story about a woman who had lost her mother, sometime after, like a year maybe or more, she walks into a cafe or coffee shop. I could be wrong on the place but it was some type of shop. The surroundings brought her to tears thinking about her mom.
Later, the young girl loses her mom in a car accident and the other lady becomes the shoulder to cry on. They handle it differently.
Woodblocks in Wonderland: The Japanese Fairy Tale Series
One wants to reach her mother from the other side and one never even dreamt of doing something like that. If anyone could help that would be great. Thank you so much! I read a book over 50 years ago about 2 stranded children - a boy and a girl - can't remember if they survived a plane crash? It's driving me crazy because I remember it being a great read and would like to read it again. I am trying to find a true crime book all i know is that it starts with the letter "p" and it has a picture of a guy with tattoos on the cover of the book. I'm trying to find a fantasy book series that involves three gods.
One is a god of the land calles the master of beasts, one is a gos of the sea, and I can't remember what the third god is a god of. There's also a fourth god who isn't seen until the final book, but we get small details about him throughout the series. I realize that isn't much information to go on, but it's the best I can do. Okay so I read this book quite a while ago but if remember correctly the book was a love story. The main male character had an illness of some sort that was slowly killing him.
He died in or near a tree maybe suicide??? The story was set near a beach. I read this one book about a girl who was in the car with her dad then they had to pull of the road and her dad got out to check something then when her dad was out of the car for a while she went out and she couldnt see anything then she saw a figure of a man and he was holding her dads head. Then her dad and her arrived at the beach house and a bunch of crazy stuff went on and she started to get suspious when a girl vanished and no one remembered. So she started to investigate and then she saw her killer again and the people with the bracelts explained everything.
I believe it was a newly-published book at that time.
