The Butterfly s Ball and the Grasshopper s Feast

First Page:

The Butterfly's Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast, by R.M. Ballantyne.

This one of the half dozen or so little books that Ballantyne wrote for young children. Many of these, and certainly the earlier ones, were written under the pseudonym of Comus, but this one went out under his own name, perhaps because by the time it was published in 1874 his own name had become much more celebrated than that of his pseudonym.

It was written for very young children, and very amusing they must have found...

Finn The Wolfhound –by: Alec John Dawson

Dawson published over thirty books, the one best remembered today probably being the animal adventure story Finn the Wolfhound (1908)…. His own dog Tynagh and her son Gareth, who was described as the largest and finest specimen of his breed to date, served as the models for Tara and Finn in Finn the Wolfhound (1908). This is probably Dawson’s best-remembered and certainly his most frequently reprinted work: Finn, a champion Irish Wolfhound, is taken from England to Australia where he undergoes a series of adventures, being exhibited as a wild animal in a circus and escaping to live in t...

The Raven –by: Edgar Allan Poe

When a modern film script draws inspiration from a poem written more than a century ago, readers can judge its impact on our collective imagination. Such is the resonance of the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe.

First published in 1845, "The Raven" is a masterpiece of atmosphere, rhythmic quality and use of language. Constructed in narrative form, it tells the story of a young man who is mourning the loss of his beloved. One December night as he wearily sits up browsing through a classical volume, a mysterious tapping against his window disturbs him. When he opens it to investi...

First Page:

The Hawthorns; a Story about Children

by Amy Walton

This is a nice little book, which would certainly appeal to its intended audience of eleven or twelve year old little girls. Its background is distinctly late Victorian, but nevertheless a modern child would find nothing it could not relate to other than the more pleasant general atmosphere of those days.

Amy Walton has written a sequel to this book, "Penelope and the Others," also published on the Athelstane website. NH ...
