The Red Fairy Book

The Red Fairy Book

It is almost impossible to envision what childhood would be like without the enchanting world of fairyland. Three-headed trolls, horses that carry their masters up mountains of glass, giants and dwarfs, monsters and magicians, fairies and ogres-these are the companions who will thrill young boys and girls of all lands and all times, as Andrew Lang's phenomenally successful collections of stories have proved. From the day that they were first printed, the Lang fairy-tale books of many colors have entertained thousands of boys and girls, as they have also brought pleasure to the many parents who have read these unforgettable classics to their children. In addition to such familiar favorites as "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," "The Ratcatcher" ("The Pied Piper"), and "Snowdrop" ("Snow White"), The Red Fairy Book contains a wonderful collection of lesser-known tales from French, German, Danish, Russian, and Romanian sources. A tale from Norse mythology recounts the old story of Sigurd and Brynhild; tales by the great Madame d'Aulnoy include "Graciosa and Percinet" and "Princess Rosette"; lesser-known tales from Grimm's collection include "The Three Dwarfs," "Mother Holle," and "The Golden Goose." All in all, this collection contains thirty-seven stories, all narrated in the clear, lively prose for which Lang was famous. Not only are Lang's generally conceded to be the best English versions of standard stories, his collections are the richest and widest in range. His position as one of England's foremost folklorists as well as his first-rate literary abilities makes his collections unmatchable in the English language.

House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery

House of Dreams: The Life of L.M. Montgomery

Author: Liz Rosenberg Narrator: Susan Hanfield Release Date: 01/06/2018

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Maud who adored stories. When she was fourteen years old, Maud wrote in her journal, "I love books. I hope when I grow up to be able to have lots of them." Not only did Maud grow up to own lots of books, she wrote twenty-four of them herself as L. M. Montgomery, the world-renowned author of Anne of Green Gables. For many years, little was known about Maud's personal life. Her childhood was spent with strict, unaffectionate grand-parents, and her reflections on writing, her lifelong struggles with anxiety and depression, her "year of mad passion," and her troubled married life remained locked away, buried deep within her unpublished journals. House of Dreams is the first biography of L. M. Montgomery for young readers to include the recent revelations about the author's last days and to encompass the complexity of a brilliant and checkered life. Kindred spirits of all ages who, like Maud, never gave up "the substance of things hoped for" will be captivated by the life story of this remarkable woman. A JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION

Grounded: The Adventures of Rapunzel (Tyme #1)

Grounded: The Adventures of Rapunzel (Tyme #1)

Author: Megan Morrison Narrator: Susan Hanfield Release Date: 01/05/2016

The fairy-tale charm and emotional depth of ELLA ENCHANTED meets the fully developed fantasy world of Harry Potter in this wonderful older middle-grade retelling of Rapunzel. In all of Tyme, from the Redlands to the Grey, no one is as lucky as Rapunzel. She lives in a magic tower that obeys her every wish; she reads wonderful books starring herself as the heroine; her hair is the longest, most glorious thing in the world. And she knows this because Witch tells her so--her beloved Witch, who protects her from evil princes, the dangerous ground under the tower, even unhappy thoughts. Rapunzel can't imagine any other life. Then a thief named Jack climbs into her room to steal one of her enchanted roses. He's the first person Rapunzel's ever met who isn't completely charmed by her (well, the first person she's met at all, really), and he is infuriating--especially when he hints that Witch isn't telling her the whole truth. Driven by anger at Jack and her own nameless fears, Rapunzel descends to the ground for the first time, and finds a world filled with more peril than Witch promised...and more beauty, wonder, and adventure than she could have dreamed.

The Game of Love and Death

The Game of Love and Death

Author: Martha Brockenbrough Narrator: Susan Hanfield Release Date: 01/05/2016

Not since THE BOOK THIEF has the character of Death played such an original and affecting part in a book for young people. Flora and Henry were born a few blocks from each other, innocent of the forces that might keep a white boy and an African American girl apart; years later they meet again and their mutual love of music sparks an even more powerful connection. But what Flora and Henry don't know is that they are pawns in a game played by the eternal adversaries Love and Death, here brilliantly reimagined as two extremely sympathetic and fascinating characters. Can their hearts and their wills overcome not only their earthly circumstances, but forces that have battled throughout history? In the rainy Seattle of the 1920s, romance blooms among the jazz clubs, the mansions of the wealthy, and the shantytowns of the poor. But what is more powerful: love? Or death?

Who Was Harriet Beecher Stowe?

Who Was Harriet Beecher Stowe?

Author: Dana M. Rau, Dana Meachen Rau Narrator: Susan Hanfield Release Date: 01/04/2016

Born in Connecticut in 1811, Harriet Beecher Stowe was an abolitionist, author, and playwright. Slavery was a major industry in the American South, and Stowe worked with the Underground Railroad to help escaped slaves head north towards freedom. The publication of her book, Uncle Tom's Cabin, a scathing anti-slavery novel, fanned the flames that started the Civil War. The book's emotional portrayal of the impact of slavery captured the nation's attention. A best-seller in its time, Uncle Tom's Cabin sealed Harriet Beecher Stowe's reputations as one of the most influential anti-slavery voices in US history.
