Author: J M Barrie Narrator: Dawn French Release Date: 01/12/2020

DK Audio presents the beautifully adapted and sound designed audiobook of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. Originally introduced in 1902 in another Barrie novel, The Little White Bird, Peter's story was expanded as a standalone novel in 1911 and since then has been memorably adapted for the movies, for television, and for the stage. The story's emotional truths about youth, freedom, and responsibility continue to touch the heart and thrill the imagination. Barrie works an indisputable magic on listeners of all ages in this classic tale. Peter grows up in Neverland, along with the Lost Boys and the fairy Tinker Bell, after falling out of his pram. Years later, Peter visits England where he meets Wendy, John and Michael Darling, all of whom accompany Peter to Neverland. There they have many adventures, meeting mermaids and fighting pirates, most notably, Captain Hook. Brought to life by British actress, writer, comedian and presenter, Dawn French, who is best known for starring in and writing for the BBC comedy sketch show French and Saunders with comedy partner Jennifer Saunders and for playing the lead role as Geraldine Granger in the BBC sitcom The Vicar of Dibley. © 1911; 2000 J M Barrie; Michael Johnstone © 2000 DK Audio

Black Beauty: The Greatest Horse Story Ever Told

Black Beauty: The Greatest Horse Story Ever Told

Author: Anna Sewell Narrator: Juliet Stevenson Release Date: 01/12/2020

The story of noble Black Beauty is one of the most popular children's books of all time. In this sensitive children's adaptation, Beauty movingly describes the friends, people and places - good and bad - that he encounters in the course of his dramatic life as he is passed from master to master. Anna Sewell wrote her book in the late 19th century as an attempt to improve the conditions of the working horse. It remains a unique document of a time when horses were the main means of transport and a heartfelt message against cruelty to animals. While primarily teaching about animal rights, it also looks at how to treat people with kindness, sympathy, and respect. In this audiobook, a beautiful soundscape transports readers to the heart of each scene. Beauty's narrative is complemented by hundreds of facts about cab horses and carriage horses in town and country and the practicalities of their treatment and ill-treatment. This powerful audiobook and its fascinating context can be enjoyed and understood by a new generation of animal lovers. Narrated by the formidable Juliet Stevenson, who has over read 140 audiobooks, she brings the characters of Black Beauty to life. © 1887; 1997 Anna Sewell; Caryn Jenner © 2000 DK Audio

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus

Author: L. Frank Baum Narrator: Rebecca K. Reynolds Release Date: 01/12/2020

An imaginative work first published in 1902, L. Frank Baum's "The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus" tells the story of Claus, an orphaned boy raised by various immortal creatures in an enchanted forest. When he reaches adulthood, Claus is told to live among mortals; he is disheartened initially by poverty, war, and other negative aspects of humanity. He becomes well-known for his kindness to children, and this enthusiasm leads to the invention of the first toys. Claus eventually makes it his life's mission to bring joy to children, and this unfolds into an entertaining explanation of many Christmas traditions, including the hanging of stockings, Christmas trees, and gift-giving. After a lifetime of generosity the immortal creatures who raised him must consider whether Claus is worthy of immortality so that he may continue to bring joy into the lives of children. "The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus" illustrates the depth of Baum's skill as an author of children's literature.
