Question ID: 783432
I read the book years ago and loved it and now I cannot find the name or author. The subject is about a young girl who realizes the people around her are being controled by some person practicing mind control. She realizes that the belts and watches and things they wear help conduct the mind control. It also has a young boy who was poor and his home was at the bottom of a hill where trucks spead by and he eventualy caused them to crash as they came to the bottom of the hill. I was told when I was young that this book was also published in England under the name "The Royal Crown" or something like that. Great book, I just want to read it again. If anyone knows the name or author by some stroke of luck that would be awesome. Thanks.

Hello. I'm going to go ahead and put down "The Silver Crown" (1968) by Robert O'Brien as the official answer here. http://www.amazon.com/Silver-Crown-Aladdin-Fantasy/dp/0689841116 I happened to pick up a copy at my local library today, and I'm 100% sure that it's the book in question here. The part about belts, watches, etc., conducting the mind control is explained in Chapters 26 & 27. Here are some excerpts: "The machine exercises control through the use of a black colored mineral called malignite... In the presence of malignite, even in very small quantities, control of human subjects is completely effective in almost one hundred percent of cases." "When we give one of our wristwatches to a watch to watch manufacturer and he puts it on, from that minute he'll manufacture watches as we tell him to. Furthermore, he'll pay use for the malignite he puts into them... In a year or so, there will be millions of malignite watches and dolls and toys and other things as well." -------------- search strategy: juvenile fiction crown "mind control" Thanks.
