I would suggest leaving a want on www. Looking for a rainy day activity book that had newspaper scope and milk carton birdhouse equipped with peanut butter and birdseeds. I read a book a while back about a boy who was obsessed with the idea of going to Georgia to see rockets fly. He had model rockets of all sorts, and always watched rocket tv shows and such. It all took place during the Vietnam War and his father was digging a bomb shelter outside, and his father became obsessed with the project, but something terrible happened.
A boy that I think ended up having a mental disability wanted the boy's toy rocket, and he went to get it and the boy fell in the ditch that was going to be used for the shelter and was speared on a cast-iron foundation bar. The boy's brother was devastated. He later found a stray dog and somehow figured out his brother's soul was in this dog, and the boy tried hitchhiking his way to Georgia to see the rockets. At one point he was taken into custody, and went on the news and eventually made it to Georgia.
I also believe at one point the boys before the brother died had a secret hide out in the woods, and also at the end the dog leads the boy to the dead brother's toy in the mentally disabled boy's backyard. Thanks, -Kyle. In the early 's I had a soft cover book about 5"x7". The cover was white.
