I have forgotten the title/author of a book I frequently recommended to
students in my previous elementary school. The gist of the story was a
man had invented a machine that could be used to change the wording of a
passage in all copies of a literary work.  The wife and son don't like
what is happening so they drug Dad's coffee and leave.  What they don't
know is that Dad has hidden the invention in her car so when they leave
they take it with them leading to a cross country chase with many
unexpected twists and turns. One of the locations visited on the journey
is the I.U. campus in Bloomington, IN.  In the most recent issue of the
I.U. Alumni magazine they have an article about books with an I.U. campus
setting.  They asked for any others people were aware of and I would like
to share this title, but having been out of the school where I used it for
two yrs. I am drawing a blank.  It is a great adventure story.  Hope it
rings a bell with one of you.
