Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Author: Lewis Carroll Narrator: Erin Bateman Release Date: 01/04/2021

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" When Alice's boring school lessons are interrupted by a white rabbit with a pocket watch, she embarks on an exciting adventure that takes her to the magical world of Wonderland. In Wonderland, everything is nonsensical and fantastic. People can grow and shrink from magical potions and cookies, animals and plants can talk, and mad queens cause chaos in the midst of wild croquet games. Everything makes little sense, but that nonsense is what makes Wonderland feel more exciting than the reality Alice left. Alice's journey through Wonderland is full of vibrant characters who speak in riddles and rhymes, including favorites like the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Queen and King of Hearts, and many more. As Alice ventures through this world on her way home, she discovers her own capacity for nonsense, but also finds that she eventually misses the real world. She must journey deep into the whimsical world to find her way back to the "boring" one. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been used as inspiration for film, television, music and theater for generations, and inspires readers of all ages to tap into their own imaginations and live in the world of nonsense and make-believe, if only for a few hours.

The Portrait of a Lady

The Portrait of a Lady

Author: Henry James Narrator: Erin Bateman Release Date: 01/03/2021

“Things are always different than what they might be...If you wait for them to change, you will never do anything.” Isabel Archer is a young woman who has inherited a large sum of money after the death of her father. She is invited to visit her Aunt and Uncle’s estate in London, where she is greeted by a cast of eclectic neighbors, many of whom offer her marriage very quickly due to her status. Isabel is set on maintaining independence though, and refuses several offers of marriage as she lives in pursuit of her destiny. Eventually, she does fall prey to the people trying to gain her fortune, and settles into an unhappy marriage with an egotistical man named Gilbert Osmond. The rest of her tale plays out sadly, with her step-daughter being pursued by one of her own prior suitors, a selfish husband scheming to take control of her wealth, and a constant pull between all of the people who feel they have a claim to a bit of Isabel’s life and fortune. The Portrait of a Lady is one of Henry James’s most popular works, and was a milestone work for its successful portrayal of in-depth motivation and humanity. Henry James’s masterful characterization of Isabel has served as inspiration for a century’s worth introspective and complex characters.

Five Children and It

Five Children and It

Author: Edith Nesbit Narrator: Erin Bateman Release Date: 01/10/2020

I daresay you have often thought what you would do if you had three wishes given you…and felt certain that if you had the chance you could think of three really useful wishes without a moment's hesitation. These children had often talked this matter over, but, now the chance had suddenly come to them, they could not make up their minds. When 5 children discover the Psammead—a malevolent sand-fairy—who says he can grant wishes, the children cannot believe their luck! All their wildest secret dreams will come true: beauty beyond compare, riches greater than kings, the ability to fly. But wishes are not always what they seem, and every wish the fairy grants goes wrong for the children. With each wish, the children attract more danger and consequence. They eventually must learn that their struggles cannot be wished away, and that every wish they are granted spreads ripples of misfortune for themselves and those around them. But the power to have one's heart's desires fulfilled is incredible valuable, and the temptation to continue wishing may be too much for the children to resist, even once they know those wishes will come at a price. From Edith Nesbit, one of the earliest authors of children’s literature, comes Five Children and It, a fantastical and timeless tale of the risks and consequences of careless wishes.

Bambi is the beloved story of a young deer’s childhood and coming of age in a forest with many dangers.

As he grows up, Bambi discovers the true nature of power and compassion, and will come to understand his place in the balance of living creatures. The story is a challenging exploration of the impact of humans on the natural world and creatures, but has all of the charm of a coming of age novel.
