It was something like spiral or ugh on the tip of my brain but can't remember. This was a book I read as a child, and was a seed in me developing my faith. Talking late 70's, early 80's. It concerned a boy who goes to a Christian youth group. His parents are splitting up. I remember him staying off school, been able to have a bed on the sofa, watch tv and having ice cream because he had a sore throat. The youth leader spoke about our body been like glove, and when you take your hand out of the glove then it's empty, illustrating the soul.
He gave another talk about prayer, holding up a telephone which wasn't connected, this made the kids laugh. The boy went to a safari park with his dad, on one of the days when he was allowed to see him. He tried to run away from home, but then his Dad brought him back and later on he stops his sister from running into the road and getting hit by a car, and this was used as an example of why this was where he was meant to be.

This boy finds out his parents signed the papers for him to be deranged and he ran away. I remember he had a little sister also. He ran away and found a new born on a front door steps so he took the baby with him and went to a school and hid in the restroom.
It was a book that depicted someone's life for real where he, her younger sister and mother had to hide lights n matches then one day police are at the house and discover what they call blue murder. I read the first few books in a series about 10 years ago. It was a bout a young teenager who lived with her grandmother and had visions and could see ghosts.

He had a companion that I think was a hawk and was a romantic interest of hers. One of the books also involved a medieval festival and fencing and another involved a crystal ball. I have 2.

The title or name of the monster may have the word "bones" in it. A picture book i loved as a child where a dog i think a chocolate lab digs his way to the other side of the world. And the world had magic! I am trying to find a book with protagonist named 'Nat', I guess. Nathaniel or something like that.
Maybe he was jew. He hooked up with the hippie wife of his professor. And then years later he comes back maybe he was in hiding, I do not remember to find that the professor and his wife were there no more. But, their daughter was there and she seems to have taken a liking to him. He remembers having played with her when she was a toddler. I read this a long time ago, and then too, it was an old book. Hope somebody remembers it. I recall the title of the book as 'Sammy the Salmon', as yet I have not come up with an example from that period after searching the Internet.

Looking for a book about a young american girl who learned french from her french cousin, became a nurse, and during the war ended up parachuting into enemy territory.
She had to go through rigid language training, because although she spoke French, they would know she was American. Notably, Spenser quotes the story as Britomart makes her way through the House, with warning mottos above each doorway "Be bold, be bold, but not too bold".
While writing his poem, Spenser strove to avoid "gealous opinions and misconstructions" because he thought it would place his story in a "better light" for his readers. However, there are dedicatory sonnets in the first edition to many powerful Elizabethan figures. Spenser addresses "lodwick" in Amoretti 33, when talking about The Faerie Queene still being incomplete. This could be either his friend Lodowick Bryskett or his long deceased Italian model Ludovico Ariosto, whom he praises in "Letter to Raleigh".
The poem is dedicated to Elizabeth I who is represented in the poem as the Faerie Queene Gloriana, as well as the character Belphoebe. It is possible that he read to her from his manuscript at this time. On 25 February , the Queen gave him a pension of fifty pounds per year. Throughout The Faerie Queene , virtue is seen as "a feature for the nobly born" and within Book VI, readers encounter worthy deeds that indicate aristocratic lineage.
Initially, the man is considered a "goodly knight of a gentle race" who "withdrew from public service to religious life when he grew too old to fight". Likewise, audiences acknowledge that young Tristram "speaks so well and acts so heroically" that Calidore "frequently contributes him with noble birth" even before learning his background; in fact, it is no surprise that Tristram turns out to be the son of a king, explaining his profound intellect. Using the Salvage Man as an example, Spenser demonstrated that "ungainly appearances do not disqualify one from noble birth".
On the opposite side of the spectrum, The Faerie Queene indicates qualities such as cowardice and discourtesy that signify low birth. During his initial encounter with Arthur, Turpine "hides behind his retainers, chooses ambush from behind instead of direct combat, and cowers to his wife, who covers him with her voluminous skirt". Spenser's stanza is the longest of the three, with nine iambic lines — the first eight of them five footed, that is, pentameters, and the ninth six footed, that is, a hexameter, or Alexandrine — which form "interlocking quatrains and a final couplet".
Over two thousand stanzas were written for the Faerie Queene. In Elizabethan England, no subject was more familiar to writers than theology. Elizabethans learned to embrace religious studies in petty school, where they "read from selections from the Book of Common Prayer and memorized Catechisms from the Scriptures". Here, allegory is organized in the traditional arrangement of Renaissance theological treatises and confessionals. While reading Book I, audiences first encounter original sin, justification and the nature of sin before analysing the church and the sacraments.
During The Faerie Queene's inception, Spenser worked as a civil servant, in "relative seclusion from the political and literary events of his day". Within his poem, Spenser explores human consciousness and conflict, relating to a variety of genres including sixteenth century Arthurian literature. The Faerie Queene draws heavily on Ariosto and Tasso. The first three books of The Faerie Queene operate as a unit, representing the entire cycle from the fall of Troy to the reign of Elizabeth. Despite the historical elements of his text, Spenser is careful to label himself a historical poet as opposed to a historiographer.
Spenser notes this differentiation in his letter to Raleigh, noting "a Historiographer discourseth of affairs orderly as they were done…but a Poet thrusteth into the midst…and maketh a pleasing Analysis of all". Spenser's characters embody Elizabethan values, highlighting political and aesthetic associations of Tudor Arthurian tradition in order to bring his work to life.
While Spenser respected British history and "contemporary culture confirmed his attitude",  his literary freedom demonstrates that he was "working in the realm of mythopoeic imagination rather than that of historical fact". The Faerie Queene owes, in part, its central figure, Arthur, to a medieval writer, Geoffrey of Monmouth. In his Prophetiae Merlini "Prophecies of Merlin" , Geoffrey's Merlin proclaims that the Saxons will rule over the Britons until the "Boar of Cornwall" Arthur again restores them to their rightful place as rulers.
Through their ancestor, Owen Tudor , the Tudors had Welsh blood, through which they claimed to be descendants of Arthur and rightful rulers of Britain. Since its inception four centuries ago, Spenser's diction has been scrutinized by scholars. Despite the enthusiasm the poet and his work received, Spenser's experimental diction was "largely condemned" before it received the acclaim it has today. Sugden argues in The grammar of Spenser's Faerie Queene that the archaisms reside "chiefly in vocabulary, to a high degree in spelling, to some extent in the inflexions, and only slightly in the syntax".
Samuel Johnson also commented critically on Spenser's diction, with which he became intimately acquainted during his work on A Dictionary of the English Language , and "found it a useful source for obsolete and archaic words"; Johnson, however, mainly considered Spenser's early pastoral poems, a genre of which he was not particularly fond. The diction and atmosphere of The Faerie Queene relied on much more than just Middle English ; for instance, classical allusions and classical proper names abound—especially in the later books—and he coined some names based on Greek , such as "Poris" and "Phao lilly white.
Spenser's language in The Faerie Queene , as in The Shepheardes Calender , is deliberately archaic, though the extent of this has been exaggerated by critics who follow Ben Jonson 's dictum, that "in affecting the ancients Spenser writ no language. Examples of medieval archaisms in morphology and diction include:. Numerous adaptations in the form of children's literature have been made — the work was a popular choice in the 19th and early 20th century with over 20 different versions written, with the earliest being E. Bradburn's Legends from Spencer's Fairy Queen, for Children , written in the form of a dialogue between mother and children — the 19th-century versions oft concentrated on the moral aspect of the tale.
The Edwardian era was particularly rich in adaptation for children, and the works richly illustrated, with contributing artists including A. Walker , Gertrude Demain Hammond , T. Robinson , Frank C. According to Richard Simon Keller, George Lucas 's Star Wars film also contains elements of a loose adaptation, as well as being influenced by other works, with parallels including the story of the Red Cross Knight championing Una against the evil Archimago in the original compared with Lucas's Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader.
Keller sees extensive parallels between the film and book one of Spenser's work, stating "[A]lmost everything of importance that we see in the Star Wars movie has its origin in The Faerie Queene , from small details of weaponry and dress to large issues of chivalry and spirituality".
