The Anouka Chronicles

In a desperate plea to save Anouka from complete demise, William and Rosabella Joy are hurled into a web of strange new friends. A Black Witch is set to turn the human world into a slavery of coldness if she finds her way in. Her accomplice, an elusive goblin, is trying to capture four children, and if these children surround the Old Oak Tree only darkness will prevail for eternity. But who is he? Angus Moon, a charming Scottish boy, is bewildering and no one seems to understand his role. Alyssa too seems a rather knowledgeable dark horse. And Myriad, the elf? Well, he's just ridiculously tiny. A new headmaster, Mr Vixonight, is acting suspicious. Miss Terrine? She just smells of old coffee. And Miss Lovett? Too bothersome she is. At the crux of Anouka, will the light or the dark side prevail? Will Mr Vixonight be able to hide his true colours? Will Angus Moon ever stop flirting. And Alyssa? Will her heroine nature help or hinder? William and Rosabella could get slain alongside their friends, or will Mrs Joy be able to rely on her son to get back home unscathed, with at least a semi-pleasing school report? For once.

Emma

The definitive text of Jane Austen's penetrating and sparkling satire, "Emma", this "Penguin Classics Edition" includes an introduction by Fiona Stafford. Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, rich - and fiercely independent - is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the advice of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her pretty, naive Harriet Smith, her well-laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine, and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, "Emma" is often seen as Jane Austen's most flawless work. Edited with an introduction by Fiona Stafford, this edition includes a chronology, additional suggestions for further reading, and the original "Penguin Classics" introduction by Tony Tanner. Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most famous women writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, Pride and Prejudice, at the age of 22. She was also the author of "Sense and Sensibility", "Persuasion", "Northanger Abbey" and "Mansfield Park". If you enjoyed "Emma", you may like Charlotte Bronte's "Villette", also available in "Penguin Classics". "These modern editions are to be strongly recommended for their scrupulous texts, informative notes and helpful introductions." (Brian Southam, the Jane Austen Society). "The author of "Emma"...has produced sketches of such spirit and originality that .. in this class she stands almost alone." (Sir Walter Scott).

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

A beautiful paperback edition of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, book two in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Four adventurous siblings - Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie - step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change ...and a great sacrifice. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over sixty years. This is a stand-alone read, but if you would like to explore more of the Narnian realm, pick up The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
