  2. Cinderella and Other Stories from "The Blue Fairy Book"

    Cinderella and Other Stories from "The Blue Fairy Book"

    SKU: 12763

    $4.00

    Andrew Lang (1844–1912) was a brilliant Scottish scholar, man of letters, and serious student of folklore. His series of "fairy books" is generally regarded as among the richest collections in the English language. Gathered from around the world — from Norse and Icelandic sources, from the Far East, Mideast, Europe, Africa, Australia, and many other areas — these books not only introduced generations of youngsters to the enchanting world of fairyland but gave adults an opportunity to return to the wonderful realm of make-believe.

    This delightful selection of six popular tales from Lang's Blue Fairy Book includes charming versions of "Cinderella," "The Bronze Ring," "Felicia and the Pot of Pinks," "The White Cat," "The Story of Pretty Goldilocks," and "Snow-white and Rose-red." New illustrations by Marty Noble capture all the romance and magic of these time-honored tales.

    Reset in large, easy-to-read type, these perennial favorites will delight today's young audiences just as they enthralled readers when first published over a century ago.

    SKU: 4349

    $18.00

    City of God By AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO Translated by Henry Bettenson

    St Augustine, bishop of Hippo, was one of the central figures in the history of Christianity, and City of God is one of his greatest theological works. Written as an eloquent defence of the faith at a time when the Roman Empire was on the brink of collapse, it examines the ancient pagan religions of Rome, the arguments of the Greek philosophers and the revelations of the Bible. Pointing the way forward to a citizenship that transcends the best political experiences of the world and offers citizenship that will last for eternity, City of God is one of the most influential documents in the development of Christianity.

    Code Talker, by Joseph Bruchac

    SKU: 1017

    $9.99

    A NOVEL ABOUT THE NAVAJO MARINES OF WORLD WAR TWO

    Throughout World War II, in the conflict fought against Japan, Navajo code talkers were a crucial part of the U.S. effort, sending messages back and forth in an unbreakable code that used their native language. They braved some of the heaviest fighting of the war, and with their code, they saved countless American lives. Yet their story remained classified for more than twenty years.

    But now Joseph Bruchac brings their stories to life for young adults through the riveting fictional tale of Ned Begay, a sixteen-year-old Navajo boy who becomes a code talker. His grueling journey is eye-opening and inspiring. This deeply affecting novel honors all of those young men, like Ned, who dared to serve, and it honors the culture and language of the Navajo Indians.

    David Copperfield (Bantam Classics) by Charles Dickens

    SKU: 1352

    $6.99

    ABOUT DAVID COPPERFIELD

    Of all Dickens’s novels, David Copperfield most fervently embraces the comic delights, the tender warmth, the tragic horrors of childhood. It is our classic tale of growing up, an enchanting story of a gently orphan discovering life and love in an indifferent adult world. Persecuted by his wrathful stepfather, Mr. Murdstone; deceived by his boyhood idol, the callous, charming Steerforth; driven into mortal combat with the sniveling clerk Uriah Heep; and hurled, pell-mell, into a blizzard of infatuation with the adorably dim-witted Dora, he survives the worst—and the best—with inimitable style, his bafflement tuming to self-awareness and his unbridles young heart growing ever more disciplined and true.

    Of this richly autobiographical novel Dickens himself wrote, "like many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts a favorite child. And his name is David Copperfield."
