She was trying to solve a mystery of a lost doll belonging to another girl named Sally. It turned out that the doll belonged to her great aunt Sarah, called Sally as a child. Sally had been given a set of books that she took to her aunts. During a rainstorm/flooding, she read to a group of schoolchildren to keep them calm. (I’m pretty sure that was part of this same book.) She was able to find the doll when she noticed that her cat had been playing in a corner of the attic and had a piece of doll hair stuck in its claws.

Norma Kassirer, Magic Elizabeth

The reading-aloud-in-storm scence is not in this book, but the rest of the details match. The book is Magic Elizabeth, but the part about reading to children in a rainstorm isn’t part of it. Definitely the book. Magic Elizabeth, without a doubt! Bet you get lots of answers on this one . Nancy Kassirer, Magic Elizabeth, 1966. I’m pretty sure this is the book you are looking for. Sally looks for the doll in a picture in her Great Aunt’s spooky house she goes back in time and eventually figures out that the little girl in the picture is her aunt a cat does help her find the doll hidden in a crevice in the attic.

There is a book called Utopian and Dystopian Writing for Children and Young Adults by Carrie Hintz , and it’s possible she covers your book in there. Robert O’Brien, Z for Zachariah. One of many possibilities. Others include Lois Lowry’s The Giver, Rosemary Harris’ A Quest for Orion or perhaps even John Wyndham’s The Chrysalids. S718: Santa just after Christmas I am looking for an illustrated children’s book about Santa coming home after delivering presents. He was alone & opened presents, got socks from Mrs. Claus, which he seemed grumpy about, opened a package that had a bottle in it, smiled and thought “Jack.” Published pre-1980. Small, squarish, color. Briggs, Father Christmas, 1973. Sounds like Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas. S719: Brief headache reports Young adult’s book of short horror stories with a girl who tries to find her grandmother’s purse, a boy who plays a trick on a witch and gets transported to the dark ages, a boy who thinks his girlfriend’s family is vampires but are actually werewolves, a girl who works on a haunted hayride, etc. S720: Area demand cardiovascular system Omaha, NE (YA collection) There’s a series of YA books, early chapter-book level, with pictures. They’re SF, on Earth in the future, and mostly on space ships, I think. There’s a command center operating out of Omaha, NE. I read them from the library, and PuertorriqueГ±o hembra they were hardcovers of about 6″ x 8″ . this was in 1985-7ish. S721: Sculptures Become more active It is not “Stonewalkers” or “Court of the Stone Children”. The statues may have been real people who were turned to stone. Not sure.
