Pearl Harbor kept a 9-year-old from returning a book to the library 75 years ago, his son says.

WILKES-BARRE, PA - A children's book borrowed from a Pennsylvania library 75 years ago is now back where it belongs.

Robert Lockman says he found a book his late father checked out in 1941.

He was only 9 years old at the time, and five days later, Pearl Harbor happened.

The library says they're thrilled to see the book, and are going to waive the $550 late fee.
