A brief glimpse of it is shown on the evening TV news, but what it is and where it came from is a mystery. Angie Inkster Scrivener decides to solve the mystery so she can use it as her news story entry in a contest sponsored by a nearby metropolitan newspaper. If Angies story is select as the winning entry, she will be named as the newspapers junior reporter. Acting like an investigative reporter, she unravels the mystery. To do so she becomes involved in a fantastic adventure. Her story about it wins much more than the contest, for almost immediately after its submission it is used as a big story on the first page of the Morning Herald. All sorts of exciting things then happen involving her family, her best school friend and her new friend-the eccentric inventor of what the purple automobile really was. Suitable for ages nine to fourteen.Seymour Manns stories and poetry are always inventive and unique. His background is both diverse and wide as a teacher, scholar and a practitioner in governmental affairs and labor relations. In all his writing he draws on these experiences in a way that is enriched by his fertile imagination, and certainly that is exhibited in this story. I highly recommend it, and I salute Seymour for the achievement it represents-Herman Taube, Author of Golden Leaves- Kyszl Kishlak/Refugee Village
