Maggie Balistreri | 2 comments Hi, I'm looking for a novel read in the 80s. YA. A brother and sister are shipped off to old relatives. They poke around a closet and find a pair of boots and a ring with magical properties: The boots fit either sibling despite different shoe sizes and each step takes you many miles. I think I learned the word "leagues" reading this, so maybe it was described as each step takes you x leagues? And the ring maybe was a navigational tool?

Paperback, blue cover, a boy and a girl hovering, a large gold ring encircles them.

I think the title might be:

The Secret Ring
The Mystery Ring
The Ring

Does this ring a bell? I'd love to find this book.

Thank you

Can What the Witch Left be ruled out? It has the 7 league boots.

Maggie Balistreri | 2 comments Lobstergirl, the title didn't sound familiar but I saw an older edition, and the cover looks like that is indeed the one. Thank you so much, and thank you Rosa too for suggesting the same author.

I ordered a copy and can't wait to read it.

Thank you.
