It was a book about a boy in a small town and at the end of the book he flys on his bike.  I want to read it again but nobody knows what book I am talking about.

Does anyone know the name of the kids/young adult book about dolls that come to life? I think it might be by a British author . . . . There were like four dolls and they lived in a doll house. One of them came out of a cracker. When I was a kid I though the cracker was like a saltine with a prize inside, like cereal boxes! LOL!

I checked it out of the library when I was a kid and I've never been able to find it since.

Is it Four Dolls by Rumer Godden (1983)? Ann M. Martin also has a book called The Doll People. I believe that The Meanest Doll in the World is the follow-up book. Other "doll" titles I found were The Mennyms and The Mennyms in the Wilderness by Sylvia Waugh.

Since ya'll have been great helping finding the titles of those maybe you can help me.  I read a book a long time ago I cant remember some of it but what I remember is a actor who is wrongfully accused of  murder(I think it was...anyway some crime) and he runs and hides out in some cabin in the woods where theirs this women there. He holds her hostage there, they end up falling in love.  I think she was a teacher, not sure though.  Does anyone recognize the book and remember the title.
