Don't remember anything about the word game This has to be much older than the 90s.
I remember reading this story in either elementary school or junior high and I graduated from high school over Gasp! For some reason, I associate the story with the author of Follow My Leader. Did he write for textbooks or school readers? Any chance this was a short story and not a novel? This Scholastic anthology is from the right time and includes a story called High Diver , by John Ashworth.https://walllobeti.ml
Up next, recap & links
Franklin M. Reck, Thomas Y. Just to confirm that yes, this has got to be the short story? The Diving Fool?! The new diving team member who? The first-person narrator, a generous-spirited old team member who recruited him i. The new guy had bombed somewhat in his first meet a few weeks earlier. The nice old team member whom the coach keeps saying is good, but not performing up to his full potential does indeed psych his new fellow team member up again, terminology not used back then!
It was decades later that I realized they were modifying the word? Anyway, what worked for the scared new kid worked for the other! By gosh if the old kid wasn? I even remember exactly the closing dialogue: The old kid says bewilderedly, stunned at his own success:? I did what you wanted, Coach. I talked him into it? The coach interrupted him:? You talked yourself into it, you diving fool!? Wish all of us ever experiencing stage fright always had such a compatriot to talk us into the right frame of mind!
In fact My sight-reading abilities, for instance, are really, really good. Sometimes I let nerves get in the way of the production of beautiful vocal tone, however! I want a companion on hand at all times like the old team member in this story! I couldn't find Snip the Tailor as part of an anthology, but I did find it as an individual book. It's by Miriam Blanton Huber Nisbet, French, Ltd.
More titles to consider
Sorry, don't think this is what you're looking for. I found a reference to Snip the Tailor in Index To Fairy Tales, Myths, and Legends - 2nd Supplement, but I don't think it's the book you're looking for since it appears to be a school reader. Note: Wonder-story books reading foundation series. A good number of other tales were included in the reader.
Byrd Baylor, The Chinese Bug , Could this be it?
Cole Bay Band: Adventure-Romance Caribbean Style by T. Stelma | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble®
Illustrated by Beatrice Darwin. Wilbur, Richard, Digging for China , This picture book poem has illustrations by William Pene du Bois. Doubleday, I also vaguely remember a very small picture book about digging to China with illustrations and possibly the writing as well by Joan Walsh Anglund.
Hope this helps. A little earlier than the 's, but The Little Carpenter by?? Samuel Raynor, Series: New and true books for the young, no. Here is a link for Chinese Folk Tales. None of the books listed were the book I am looking for. I may have purchased it through a school book fair?? I'm just not sure. Please keep looking, thank you. Not a solution, but could it be an anthology of Japanese fairy tales, rather than Chinese? The first story described sounds like the Japanese story The Crane Maiden , about an old woman who takes in a crane during a winter storm, the bird turns into a beautiful girl, and the woman raises her as her daughter.
This is definitely an anthology of Japanese folk tales that you are looking for, not Chinese. The thief falls onto the wolf and each believes the other to be the "terrible eek. The date for Compton's retelling is too late for the anthology that you are looking for, but it sounds like basically the same story.
A lot of the details are different than the book described, but it's the only thing that came up in my database search of kangaroos and wars! They were known throughout the world as the "Stoppers of the Great War". Lady Adelaide, a boxing kangaroo, helps to defeat the German army, thus becoming a heroine of the Great War. Alfred P. Morgan, Boys' Book of Science and Construction. Another possibility is N. Stout: Boys' Book of Mechanical Models, Windsor, editor, The Boy Mechanic Book 3 , They consist of articles with diagrams for building all kinds of things.
Book 3 is subtitled " Things For Boys To Do" and has instructions for an aerial cableway, miniature tank, motor car, parcel delivery bicycle, etc. Hope this helps - just discovered your wonderful site tonight! Tomie de Paola, Bill and Pete. A possibility.
Picture books about a crocodile and his bird friend who claims to be his 'toothbrush'. C I thought it might be this, but when I look at it, it doesn't seem to have the geometrical artwork that I think I have seen on a smaller book around here. This is picture-book size, with bold illustrations throughout.
