Judith uses the powers of the doll Dido to cripple Melissa and take her fiance Carew away. Part two is narrated by Dilys, the child of Judith and Carew, who learns about some of Judith's plotting. Part three is Melissa again, as she recovers her ability to walk so that she can go to Europe and find Dilys' child. Part four is narrated by Nina, Dilys' daughter found in a refugee camp, who finds the doll Dido again and finally deals with her. This is most definitely A Candle in Her Room.

Bryna was an overwieght child and the doll makes her lose weight and she becomes very attractive, and the doll takes control of Bryna's body and takes her out into the world where she is involved in Tantric sex. I want to say the doll was possessed by some kind of Hindu goddess It had something to do with Tantra and Hinduism.
By the end of the book the doll has taken her over almost completely and has even committed murder. I think the doll was trying to kill Bryna so her spirit could live in Bryna's body. I know it sounds kind of wierd, but I read this book around when I was in high school and would like to read it again. The book I read was a paperback and at the time it had a dark cover I think black with the outline of a child's facial profile. If you can come up with any suggestions for the title of this book I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for your help. John Saul? I don't remember any tantric sex in Saul books, but I do recall a Saul story in which a child's doll gets her to commit murders or something along those lines. The cover for the book The Unwanted sounds like the cover you describe. It is not the John Saul book - I have all of his books and have read them all.
It's a smaller book, probably written in the 80's. Thanks for trying though! Same as B Illustrated by Margery Gill. Atheneum, Third printing, Ex-library copy with usual markings, library bound in green buckram. Hard to find! Was the doll's name Dido? If so, it might be A Candle in her Room It sounds something like "A Candle in her Room," but that is a fairly long girl's fantasy novel and it is about three generations of women in a family who are tragically affected by the influence of an evil doll named Dido.
Do you remember if it was a wooden doll named Dido? I don't remember any other details about the book, except that it was so chilling and evil that I almost didn't want to finish it and I loved scary books!

I'm so happy to have found the book after all these years. A Cap for Mary Ellis. I only know the one book in the series--it's about Mary Ellis Stebbins beginning her nursing training.
Hope Newell, Mary Ellis series. This could be it, although the name is different than the person remembers. Hope this is it! Mary Ellis has a brother whose stage name is Steppin' Stebbins, so this may be a possibility. There's also a sequel, Mary Ellis, Student Nurse This stumper is definitely the Mary Ellis books by Hope Newell. Her nickname in nursing school is Tater. It probably appears in various other fairy tale books too. In some versions the girl makes a coat of rushes or donkeyskin to wear and this acts as a disguise from her father.
There is a version of the story called Deerskin , by Robin McKinley. This might not be the same exact one that the requester posted since that was in the 70's and in an anthology, but the story is the same. Perhaps you may find it in an anthology of German Fairytales. There are several fairy tales from different countries that have this theme as a story line. It would most likely be in an anthology of folk and fairy tales from around the world An updated version of this was releaced years ago, called Mossgown set in a Louisiana Biou. Both versions were the same story.
A man has 3 daughters. He askes them how much they love him. The two oldest name precious things gold etc the youngest daughter told her father she loved him 'more than meat loves salt'! He didn't understand, he drove her away. Much later, when his poor servant serves him a meal without seasoning esp without salt he realizes what she meant, how much she loved him, and how much she meant to him.
She is the servant. She throws off her disguise and reviels herself to him. They are happily reunited.

Also, you can see an analysis of some Cinderella variants here Rushen Coatie not included. I liked Jacobs' version for its smoothness of language, not to mention Cap O'Rushes' cleverness and independence and the fact that the women's general kindness to her doesn't hurt the story at all. Of course, maybe it came before the Perrault and Grimm versions anyway, so to speak! I was very annoyed when I. Edmonds took the riddle away from the female character and gave it to a man in Trickster Tales.
Or so it seemed. I remember this story, too. Could it be one of the stories from the Arabian Nights? This is a classic story told in many cultures, and is one that has always stuck with me. Many of the different versions of this story and the books from which they are taken are available here. There are many versions, some of which can be found here. Perhaps if you find the origin version of the folktale Russian, German, etc.

There are several copies of the story on line. Frank O'Leary, Cappy Cardinal. Cute story about a little gray cardinal named Cappy. After he rescues a dove's babies, Mother Nature rewards him by enveloping him in the red stripe of a rainbow.
When the rainbow vanishes, he is left with a brilliant red coat, as a mark of his courage. It took several weeks for me to recieve a copy of Cappy Cardinal through an inter-library loan from another county. But, now that I have it, I know that the Frank O'Leary tale is absolutely the book I was looking for, the one my grandmother bought secondhand. I had no idea it was published two decades before I read it. Thank you so much for your help! I wish I would have known to post it long before I did and saved myself all the fruitless searching! SThe book is called Captain Ghost.

He used to be a sea captain and has all manner of ship things. Then at the end, something happens and the neighborhood try to make the chilidren tear down their 'ship'. There were several children involved. I'm thinking that the book may be from the forties or fifties; it may or may not have had a red cover.
This is Captain Ghost again, isn't it? But they are constantly aware of being watched from the strange Victorian house where an old recluse lives. Soon they meet "Captain Ghost" who teaches them how to build and man a ship. How they share and finally solve a mystery that surrounded their new friend makes exciting reading.

The Captain wasn't a ghost, but at first he wouldn't come out to see the kids, so they thought he was. Eventually, they join him to help build his boat. I think there was a mystery, and the captain's hankerchief figured into it somehow. Actually, it's on the Solved Mysteries page. I remembered reading this book myself, sometime in the early 60's, but I couldn't remember many of the details,but I'm sure it's the same book.
Sharing plans and secrets, the three friends were inseparable. How they came to meet the owner of a Victorian house they called him Captain Ghost among themselves , learned how to build and man a ship, met a sinister stranger, and finally solved an old mystery makes for exciting reading. When the Rand McNally Junior Elf books were reissued in paperback as Tiny Elf books, some were the same stories with the same pictures, while others used the original pictures with a different title and author!
The "Captain Kitty" pictures were done over in this way, so if you find a Tiny Elf book where the pictures seem very familiar and the story doesn't really, that's why. The Junior Elf version was also reprinted and is easy to find. Could you possibly be looking for Captain Kitty? It's a tiny book with a black cat standing at the helm wearing nautical garb.
L15 - I am pretty sure that this person is remembering Barbara Sleigh's Carbonel books.
They are pretty hard to find. I loved them as a kid and had forgotten all about the apothecary jars until I read this description. This sounds like the first Carbonel book by Barbara Sleigh. I can't remember the exact title but there are two or three books with the same characters. Carbonel is the cat. I am a bit of a Barbara Sleigh fan too from my childhood. Good answer on the apothecary jar, but that is actually the second book in the series - The Kingdom of Carbonel.
The first book in the series is Carbonel, King of Cats. In this story, Rosemary and John communicate with Carbonel by holding onto the witch's broom - but which is destroyed accidently toward the end of the first book - hence the need for the special liquid in the second book.
The third book, Carbonel and Calidor , is by far the hardest to find. I have yet to read it but have finally tracked down a paperback copy in England at an outlandish price, but which should now be enroute to me. The first book can be obtained as a new paperback from several UK children's bookstores online.

To bad the other two books are not avaliable as paperback reprints. Theodore Sturgeon, Yesterday Was Monday. Okay, this is a long shot, but Theodore Sturgeon wrote a short story that sounds similar to the description. This sounds similar to a book my mother bought in the early s, called something like The Secret Club. The members of the "secret club" do the kinds of things you describe for me, the most memorable one was making sure that people don't step in dog poop!
Cooper Edens, Caretakers of Wonder , I think it's Caretakers of Wonder , which exhorts you to open your eyes. This is illustrated with imagination, the sky and the horizon safety-pinned together, the "ones who light and keep the stars burning" floating off in a hot air balloon full of giant matches, the starry sky folded up like a quilt. The imaginative illustrations show "the sky and the horizon" safety-pinned together, the stars being lit by a man in a hot-heart balloon full of giant matches, the sun hoisted up by a pulley, the starry sky folded up like a bolt of cloth on a worker's back, "the ones weaving the meadows and telling the trees where to stand" and more.
Marjories Vetter, Journey for Jennifer, This sounds like it could be the same as C This is a guess - here's the only description I could find: Jennifer could feel her face stiffen as she watched Steve say good-by to the others. Didn't their dates on board the ship to Havana mean anything to him?
Wasn't he going to miss her at all when she was in the hill country? My Bookstumper A was solved by readers input directing me to Marjorie Vetter's hardcover book Cargo for Jennifer.

But whether emaciated or after Picasso, Carter is beautifully feline and very funny, and so are his more stable friends. At last Carter has his revenge. He paints Mr. Blob himself, in a variety of improbable poses, finally painting him in the bath and leaving him there. He then painted himself in his holiday gear and was off. This is an original story, not over-written, and the pictures are hilarious, packed full of ridiculous jokes.
T Could this be the John Peterson series? The secret hide-out. I have researched the two suggestions, and would like to thank you very much for your help. In fact, I am now sure there was also a dog. It seems to me that Enid Blyton's plots are very similar to the books which I am referring, except the characters' clubhouse was definitely a treehouse. It also seems to me that the style of writing is similar to John Peterson.
Could there be a series written a bit later based on these same ideas and style? Please, please, keep the suggestions coming I know we are getting closer! Thank you! I came across your site while trying to find a reasonably-priced copy of Mary Ann's Mud Day. I read with interest your "Stump the Bookseller" section, and think that the solution to T may be a short series of books about a group of kids called The Three Investigators.
They didn't have a treehouse, but a really cool hideout in a junkyard that required all manner of maneuvering to access. William Arden is the author of that series from the late '60's, and I think an annoying tagalong sibling is among the characters. There are over 20 in the series.

It fascinated me, as blueberries weren't available here in NZ, and thought of any food that could turn your teeth blue was utterly fantastic.
The Wizard Private eye club investigate and Snitch - Wizard's snaggle toothed little brother tries to tag along, and I think ultimately solves the mystery. They have a clubhouse no girls allowed! After asking everyone from the mailman to Mrs Meech herself to smile to see if they have blue teeth and thus would have stolen the pie they discover that the old english sheepdog is the culprit I think.
