Just So Stories Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A relentlessly inventive collection of myths that betray a deep love and respect for the natural world, the "Penguin Classics" edition of Rudyard Kipling's "Just So Stories" is edited with an introduction by Judith Plotz and a general preface by series editor Jan Montefiore. In these bewitching stories we learn "How the Camel got his Hump", "How the Leopard got his Spots" and "How the Whale got his Throat", as Rudyard Kipling conjures up distant lands, beautiful gardens of splendid palaces, the sea, the deserts, the jungle and all its creatures. Inspired by Kipling's delight in human eccentricities and the animal world, and based on bedtime stories he told to his daughter, these strikingly imaginative fables explore the myths of creation, the nature of beasts and the origins of language and writing. They are linked by poems and scattered with Kipling's illustrations, which contain hidden jokes, symbols and puzzles. Among Kipling's most loved works, the "Just So Stories" have been continually in print since 1902. Part of a series of new editions of Kipling's works in "Penguin Classics", this volume contains a General Preface by Jan Montefiore and an introduction by Judith Plotz exploring the origins of the stories in Kipling's own life and in folklore, their place in classic children's literature and their extraordinary language. Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in Bombay. In 1882 he started work as a journalist in India, and while there produced a body of work, stories, sketches and poems - notably "Plain Tales from the Hills" (1888) - which made him an instant literary celebrity when he returned to England in 1889. His most famous works include "The Jungle Book" (1894), "Kim" (1901) and the "Just So Stories" (1902). Kipling refused to accept the role of Poet Laureate and other civil honours, but he was the first English writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907. If you enjoyed "Just So Stories", you might like "Selected Tales by the Brothers Grimm", also available in "Penguin Classics".

Excerpt: William Does His Bit is the 23rd book of children's short stories in the Just William series by Richmal Crompton. This book contains 10 stories. It was first published in 1941, and the first published versions are now collectors items and pretty rare. Like its immediate predecessors and the next two installments this book contains the central theme of World War II and the war effort, which was being fought at the date of this book's original publication. William hears the family talk about a man called Grissel, who apparently appears to exist in many places at once, helping the Germans. When he learns the man is in fact many men doing the same thing, he sets out to find Grissel and capture him. His search takes him to the village, where at an intersection, two elderly ladies are talking about passwords in whispers. William at once decides to follow the second one, who goes to a school building through the cover of laurel bushes and at a blackened window, William sees an elderly gentleman with many women talking and putting flags on maps. He, believing it to be Grissel's gang plotting propaganda, follows the man to his house, and when he starts mowing his lawn, he rings the police asking them to come. William is caught "stealing" plates and cutlery so he can see where Grissel's papers are. The police start to arrest him, as William talks about the man and his doing. The man dismisses the police, rewarding William for his "efforts to the country" with a bun and lemonade. William walks home contentedly and tells his mother what happened. His mother does not believe him, and c...

CREATIVE FICTION THAT FITS ON A POST-IT BUT CAN MOVE READERS WITH POWERFUL TALES OF LOVE, LIFE, DEATH, AND EVERYDAY LIFE In this one-of-a-kind collection, author Sean Hill has crafted hundreds of engaging stories that conjure an entire novel in just a sentence or two. Sometimes sad, often humorous and always creative, these tales touch on a wide range of life experiences from romance and family to death and sex. Nana rocked in her old wooden rocking chair. "Timmy, you have always been my favorite," she said. He looked at her. "Nana, I'm Bobby." Read your diary, discovered your secret. I thought I loved you, but now I'm not sure. Don't know what to do, you look so human. Clowning was Daryl's profession, cooking was his passion. Stella thought he was perfect. She liked to laugh and never learned to cook. Alex bought Sharon a ring for Valentine's Day, which she sold to buy the gun that stopped him from loving her. In 2009, Sean Hill combined his love of writing and technology by creating @VeryShortStory, a Twitter feed where he interacts with his readers and shares his 140-character stories.

Miss Marple Complete Short Stories Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A beautiful gift pack featuring one of Agatha Christie's most famous creations: Miss Marple. Aimed at the Christmas market it contains The Thirteen Problems and Miss Marple's Final Cases, gathering together all the Miss Marple short stories. Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as 'the typical old maid of fiction', Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature - and used it to devasting effect. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard has been heard to say: 'She's just the finest detective God ever made.' - and many Agatha Christie fans would agree. Appearing for the first time in The Murder at The Vicarage (1930) her crime-fighting career spanned over forty years when she solved her final case in 1977 in Sleeping Murder. With every tale flawlessly plotted by the Queen of Crime herself, these short stories provide a feast for hardened Agatha Christie addicts as well as those who have grown to love the detective through her many film and television appearances.

Ricky is an ordinary boy, about 10 years old, who dreams of being famous. And he has a secret that might just help him realise this dream. Because Ricky can fly. Truly. He can really fly. But there's a hitch. He can only fly when absolutely no one is looking. If a person, or an animal, or a bird sees him while he's flying, he will fall out of the sky and almost certainly die. Will he risk flying in public, just for a shot at being something more than ordinary? The third book in this brilliant new series contains two complete stand-alone stories, broken into short chapters, liberally illustrated with hilarious cartoons.
