Does anybody know the title of Ray Bradbury's short story about at girl named Margo who had to move to another planet because Earth was overcrowded? It rained on this planet every day of the year except for one hour and the kids at school locked Margo in a closet b/c they did not believe her stories about Earth. Please help me!!

Sorry...I don't have your answer. But must include a personal note. Gosh, that was I think the 3rd Bradbury story I read. That ("____"), and a story called "The Man Without A Country" by somebody else were the first two pieces of writing that made me cry. Ah, mushy.
Wasn't it every 7 years rather than every year?
(Sorry I couldn't help.)

"All Summer In a Day," first published in book form in A Medicine for Melancholy.

This one? "Man Without a Country" by Edward Everett Hale.

If so, the narration tells of the sentencing of Philip Nolan (Lt.,US Army)in the early 1800's to never again set foot on American soil nor hear the words "United States" spoken for the remainder of his days! I believe, this "man without a country" served this sentence for nearly 50 yrs. until his death. A (timeless) classic!

It reminds me a bit of Hitchcock in "No Particular Night or Morning".

Yes, by Hale, that was it. Was that a true story?

A little off-track, but that reminds me of a particularly Bradbury-esque 'Twilight Zone'. I forget the title, but it was about a criminal (played by Jack Warden, I think), who serves his sentence living on a barren planet, alone.

I'm pretty sure "The Man Without a Country" is true, and that "Twilight Zone" episode is called "The Lonely."

RE: " 'The Man Without a Country' seemed so realistic that many people who read it in The Atlantic Monthly in 1863 believed it was true." (Prentice Hall Literature, 1991)

I had always thought it was a non-fictional story.
