The Adventures of Peter Cottontail

The Adventures of Peter Cottontail by Thornton W. Burgess

The Adventures of Peter Cottontail by Thornton W. Burgess

This is the story of Peter Rabbit, a mischievous, but cautious, lagomorph who lives in the Green Meadows. Peter Rabbit begins his adventures with a quest for a new name, since his name is far too common for his taste. Having a new name is not quite what he thought it would be, however, and soon he is on to new exploits like outsmarting Reddy Fox and discovering where all his friends spend the winter. This tale co-stars Reddy Fox, Jerry Muskrat, Unc’ Billy Possum, Jimmy Skunk, Ol’ Mistah Buzzard, Bowser the Hound, and many more of Thornton W. Burgess’ delightful characters.

Entering the service of the revolutionary leader William the Silent, Prince of Orange, Ned is called upon to carry out dangerous secret missions deep within occupied territory.

The Adventures of Ulysses

The Adventures of Ulysses by Charles Lamb

The Adventures of Ulysses by Charles Lamb

Lamb used Homer’s Odyssey as the basis for the re-telling of the story of Ulysses’s journey back from Troy to his own kingdom of Ithaca. Not a direct translation and deemed modern in its time, Lamb states in the preface that, “I have gained a rapidity to the narration which I hope will make it more attractive and give it more the air of a romance to young readers”.

Black Ivory

Black Ivory by R. M. Ballantyne

Black Ivory by R. M. Ballantyne

Although the book’s title Black Ivory denotes dealing in the slave trade it is not our heroes who are doing it. At the very first chapter there is a shipwreck, which leaves the son of the charterer of the sinking ship, and a seaman friend of his, alone on the east coast of Africa, where Arab and Portuguese slave traders were still carrying out their evil trade, despite the great efforts of patrolling British warships to limit it and free the unfortunates whom they found being carried away in the Arab dhows.This book will open your eyes to what really went on. At the time of writing slave-dealing on the west coast of Africa was, due to the efforts of the British, almost extinct, but this was not the case on the east coast.

Tarzan the Untamed by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Tarzan the Untamed by Edgar Rice Burroughs

This book follows Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar chronologically. The action is set during World War I. While away from his plantation home in East Africa, invading German troops destroy it and kill his wife Jane and the Waziri warrior Wasimbu who is left crucified. Tarzan’s search for vengeance is filled with much danger, many fierce fights and tons of action as he becomes active in the war on the British side.

Potential readers should be aware that there is a strong anti-German slant to the book which usually portrays them in unflattering lights. This is a reflection of the time and place in which it was written.

Man Overboard! by F. Marion Crawford

Man Overboard! by F. Marion Crawford

Peculiar happenings aboard the schooner Helen B. Jackson when one night during a storm, the small crew found themselves diminished by one. Somebody had gone overboard, and it was surmised that it was one of the twin Benton brothers. But oddly enough, it seemed that the ‘presence’ of the missing twin continued to exist on board during the following weeks. For example, one extra set of silverware was found to be used after each meal, but nobody claimed to be using them. What then did happen that stormy night, and which brother, if indeed it was one of the brothers, was the man who went overboard?
