    Our old stumper archives no longer work with our new website, so the archives on the new site are only 2 years old. We are working on getting the old to work with the new.

    Is this just for kid’s books? I’ve been searching for a book for over 30 years with no success. It’s a post apocalyptic, science fiction, I guess? I won’t take too much of your time. But do you know of other sources to search for a book like this, if it is out of your search perimeter?

    Other than leaving a reply when someone identifies the book, is there anything I need to do to indicate my stumper has been solved?

      No. Sorry for the late response, I have been out of the store dealing with medical issues. I have marked your post as solved. Glad we could help!

    Post 237 . I am looking for that same book. I have more details but there is no way to reply to the poster.
    I believe the littles girl was Nan and also think the book had castle or manor in the title.
