She and her husband Sam Babbitt collaborated on a children's book The Forty-Ninth Magician, which was published in At the urging of her husband and her editor, she decided to write her own prose. Her first book as both author and illustrator was The Search for Delicious, which was published in Kneeknock Rise was named a Newbery Honor book. In , she won the inaugural E. White Award for achievement in children's literature.
Tuck Everlasting was adapted as a Disney feature film in and made its debut as a Broadway musical in Other possibilities include L. Meade's The Girls of Mrs. I vividly remember the "Elevator Operator" story from a mid's Scholastic paperback called Strange but True: some number Amazing Stories. The black-and-white illustration of the operator terrified me. I remember a Scholastic paperback of this in my 2nd grade classroom. Intended for older than 2nd grade obviously.
The Devil's Storybook
Colby was also the author of books about military hardware for budding warriors -- many titles of which "Arms and armor of Our Fighting Men" is the only one I can remember. I am also looking for a book that seems close to this description The only thing I can recall is the cover; a painting version of the Bigfoot film taken by Roger Patterson, and other monsters. If this seems to be the same book, I am crazy to find it as it was one of my favorites between 7th and 9th grades, when I lost it in a move. David Eddings, Belgariad series of 5 , s. Some similarities in this series to what is remembered by the poster - they are not technically children's books, but when I worked in public libraries until the series was bought for 'young adult' as well as 'adult fiction' sections of the library.
Can't remember the individual titles, and there was a second series called the Malloreon which too the story further. There is certainly a sword that in the last book of the first series the Belgariad 'blushes' when put at or outside the door of the nuptial chamber when Garath and C'nedra finally consumate their marriage. Don't remember about the sword in the bed, but definitely a warrior-like and warring hero and heroine in the medieval The Mark of the Horse Lord. Marketed to teens, but really bordering on adult rather than young adult. The two were betrothed, but as a ritual the man had to hunt the woman on horseback in the beginning.
Odds are placed in his favor by mounting her on a tired horse and??? Anyway, he catches her and she tries to knife him, but he disarms her. They are betrothed as an alliance of clans, etc. The focus of the book is on the warring over the kingdoms, etc. Sound like your book? I know those books backwards and forwards. The relationship sounds a little similar to the main characters, but those two are never allowed to sleep in the same tent, let alone the same bed.
I'm not sure if these are the books the poster is looking for. They're definitely NOT for children I would put them in the mature category, but the two main human characters are a man and a woman who are betrothed to each other, even though their families are enemies. They spend the three books going on a Great Quest, and they not only start off sleeping with a naked sword between the two of them, but Zohra the girl tries to kill Khardan The pantheon of the Gods is involved, as well as Angels, Wizards, Djin one of whom is named Pukah and demons.
This person might also be remembering a portion of one in Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series. Of course, they end up falling madly in love.

I can't remember what happens next, I do know that he becomes the god of War This person is definitely NOT talking the Belgariad or the Mallorean although those series certainly merit a reading Tamora Pierce, Alanna. I don't remember the exact episode described, but could this be one of the books in the Alanna series by Tamora Pierce?
She wants to be a knight so originally poses as a boy. After that romance does come into her relationship with her male companion. Tamora Pierce, Song of the Lioness Alanna series. This is NOT the answer to this stumper - I just read the Alanna series and she isn't betrothed to anyone, nor does she sleep with a sword between her and soneome else. Jennifer Roberson , Sword Dancer. Might this be the first book of Jennifer Roberson's Sword Dancer series?
She doesn''t trust him in the beginning of the story but eventually they fall in love. The sword in the middle of the bed rings a bell with me, and this is the first book I thought of upon reading that detail in the summary submitted by the original poster Rosemary Sutcliff , Song for a Dark Queen, Song for a Dark Queen by Rosemary Sutcliff doesn't fit this description terribly well, except for the fact that Boudicca Boadicea , married unwillingly, puts her father's sword on the bed between herself and her new husband.
Eventually, when she finds that she loves him, the sword is put outside the door. Perhaps the searcher is mixing this episode with the story from another book or not - it may well be in the other book, but I thought it couldn't hurt to submit this. Right on the tip of my tongue. Wonderful poem. Well, the date's right, anyway, maybe - Chipper, by Hortense Flexner , illustrated by Wyncie King, published Stokes Chipper was the member of a family who believed in giants and did not trouble to store up supplies for winter.
That is, until he had tamed his giant animal who gave him sunflower seeds to carry away in his pouches. While Chipper was sure he had tamed his giant friend, the human giants felt the same way about him. An entertaining story for pet lovers, well illustrated. Scatter, the baby in the chipmunk family, is always in trouble. However, a little girl looks after him. Chuffy, Chirpy and Cheeky get into trouble for frightening Mr.
Wren's chicks. Cheeky is wrongly accused and is sent to bed without supper.

When the truth is learned, Cheeky's mother brings him a big bowl of ice cream, and he is later asked to "babysit" the Wren chicks. Hope this helps! Toby Chipmunk is an early reader which I read in a Wisconsin one-room schoolhouse in the late forties - it's extremely difficult to find I finally did get a copy and not cheap! It's about talking, clothes-wearing chipmunk children who live with Grandma Chipmunk in her house in a hollow tree trunk.
A delightful little book. Daniel Cohen , mid-late 70's. I had that book also.
