    Full disclosure (to avoid accusations of plagiarizing myself): I have told this story, in a similar way, on my blog. Thirty years ago, I was walking around New York City, and I saw a guy selling original art on the street. One of the drawings was the 1930s cover of this book. The cover art, of a boy, a girl and dog in a boat that was docking on the shore of a mysterious island, was beautiful, although I didn't buy it them. For a couple of years. I thought about it. Then, one day, there he was again, on another sidewalk, still trying to sell the drawing. I think it cost me twenty dollars, and today it hangs on the wall in the bedroom of my two daughters, where it has hung for a few years. The book, which I bought them when they were little, begins with a boy and a girl in Oregon who rescue a puppy from a towering cliff and fix up an old boat, and somehow morphs into a saga about families torn apart by the Russian revolution and ends with a terrifying flood! It is a real time capsule, now utterly forgotten, but absolutely appealing to a 7 or 8-year-old of today.
