Date: Tue, 7 May 1996 14:48:35 -0400 From: Bob Haas Subject: Children's Lit Help ADS Folken, While this isn't the proper forum for this question, I hope that some of you might know where to forward it. I'm trying to find a book that I read when I was eight years old; I cannot recall the name. It's about a boy who receives a gift from an extraterrestrial. I don't remember his name, but I have the notion that he was a cross between Klaatu and Ward Cleaver. Anyway, he gives this kid a ball that will do anything the boy wills it to. Pretty cool, eh? If you can help me with the title, I'll be most grateful. I'm guessing that it was published in the mid to late 50s. Bob
