I would like to know the name of his short story that is about a little girl that used to live on planet earth and moves to mars (i think) she and her classmates are awaiting the sun since it only shows up once in a very long time. The children in her class lock her up in a closet and she does not get a chance to see the sun. These are the only details I can remember, if anyone can help me with the title or the book it's in, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you both so much! I first read this in the 8th grade and I could not remember for the life of me, that was 13 years ago! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Have a wonderful Monday, wherever you are!
I need help too... I remember reading a Ray Bradbury short story published in the Reader's Digest sometime in the 80's to 90's. It is essentially a love story about an elementary school student who fell in love with his teacher. It was one of the first Bradbury stories I'd read as a child and I was immediately captivated by it.
Please help me figure out the title, and if possible, where I can get a copy of it. Thank you.
"These Things Happen" first appeared in McCall's in May 1951. It has appeared in two of Bradbury's books under the alternative title of "A Story of Love" - the books are Long After Midnight and The Stories of Ray Bradbury.
Please help me find the title of a Ray Bradbury story. Here is a short description:
The forest burned and the spirits of the forest wandered and did not know where to live. On their way, they saw a house. If you say there were 1,000 rooms in it, that would be too much. If you say 500, that's not enough. They decided to stay there. They took in a homeless boy who had no family. He wasn't good looking, but they encouraged him and promised to take care of him. The spirits asked the boy to write a book about them. So that people would remember who they were. In gratitude for this, the spirits promised the boy a good place after his death.
Dmitry_47, welcome to the Board. The only Ray Bradbury story I can think of that comes close to what you have described is "The Homecoming". I hope that is the one you are looking for.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Richard,
Not Bradbury. Remember, there are tens of thousands of stories that were not written by Ray Bradbury, but only a handful whose names are just as well known. I'm sure the same thing happens with Isaac Asimov, with fans asking "What Isaac Asimov story was this?", when it was written by someone who just wasn't as well known.
