I think it was called a Ki-lin or Ky-rin maybe Qylin, not sure. The creature starts off as a small statue and he can shrink to tiny size or grow to the size of a horse. And he never harms anything, not even a blade of grass. At the end of the book, the woman returns home to open an orphanage. When the egg hatches, there are twins inside. A perfect little dragon and a human baby.
My friend thinks there might be a fox in the story also. I'm searching for a book that I was assigned to read for a college class in or It probably fits under the category of Intermediate Reader or possibly YA. Definitely historical fiction. It's the best book I've ever read, so I can't believe I don't remember the author or even the title.
The story is set during the time when white people are leary of their Japanese neighbors. The story centers around a girl and her family who have a farm I think on one of the San Juan Islands. Relatives come to stay with the girl's family and she is not happy about it because the female cousin is spoiled and tries to get her in trouble. The girl likes to go out sailing in her sailboat. One night she is out in her sailboat with her friend and it is foggy and they hear another boat nearby and they hear voices and the sound of a body being thrown overboard.
When the boat leaves, the girl and her friend retrieve the body from the water and bring it back to shore. The body turns out to be a Japanese man and they hide him and nurse him back to health. The would-be murderers of the Japanese man discover that he is still alive and chase the girl and her friend and cousin and the Japanese man across Puget Sound in their sailboats to Friday Harbor. It is an intense chase. Wish I could remember more of the book.

It was essentially about a family with 5 or 6 children, mostly boys, and their antics. This book was stuck in my mind because one of the sons dies after riding his bike down a hill and then crashing into the side of a car at the bottom.
There was also another kid that really like to eat butter and was caught eating a whole stick of it and later got sent to the hospital with a really high fever, like The family's first Easter after the son's death was really hard. The end of the book had the family go to Thanksgiving with their famous pudding and as they are about to leave the car one of the younger boys accidentally stepped in it and the mom was devastated that the pudding was ruined but the dad was like no it's fine the shoe was clean we don't need to tell anyone.

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.

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.

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. 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! A book about a teenage boy who doesn't want to go away for Summer camp so hides out in his basement instead.

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 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.

Jean the book is One Second After. I am trying to find a book published in the late 70's I believe. It's a science fiction book about a teenage boy and girl. They are like online pen pals, but this was written before people actually did online chat ironically. The boy notices one day that everyone is wearing masks to look human under which they don't look human, including the parents who raised him.
He discovers he's being observed everywhere he goes sort of like The Truman Show. Turns out the same goes for the girl. They try to escape together. Only to discover they are more or less an intended mating pair of the last two normal human beings, in what amounts to a conservation effort of the human race. Basically humans over millenia and through DNA enhancement bred themselves into one race and species that isn't exactly human.

You don't have to retire broke, stressed, and working long after you want to. You can retire inspired! Chris and the Ramsey research team surveyed over 10, US millionaires, discovering how these high-net-worth people reached their financial status.
And the formula might surprise you. The path to becoming a millionaire is paved with more-ordinary tools—tools that you either already have or that you can learn. If you thought you could never become a millionaire, think again. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle?
Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments? In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: "Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life! You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it!
The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker's rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and "revise" it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it. In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen "Wealth Files," which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people.
Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth. If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that's exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book.
According to T. Harv Eker, it's simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you'll get rich too!
