This stunning collection includes four of the best and favourite Bottersnikes and Gumbles stories chosen from the original beloved classics... Deep in the Australian bush live some very strange creatures. Bottersnikes make their homes in rubbish heaps. They have green wrinkly skin, cheese-grater noses and pointed ears that go red when they're angry - which is most of the time. Gumbles are happy little creatures who can be squashed into any shape without being hurt. They're clever and resourceful except when they go giggly. Then they're far too silly to do anything at all. This is handy for the Bottersnikes who, with cries of `Got You', grab the Gumbles, squash them into tins and only take them out when there's work to be done. Can the Gumbles outwit the grouchy Bottersnikes and avoid being captured again?
Translated by Irene Testot-Ferry. The Little Prince is a classic tale of equal appeal to children and adults. On one level it is the story of an airman's discovery, in the desert, of a small boy from another planet - the Little Prince of the title - and his stories of intergalactic travel, while on the other hand it is a thought-provoking allegory of the human condition. First published in 1943, the year before the author's death in action, this translation contains Saint-Exupery's delightful illustrations.
The sixth in the series of the classic fantasy tales - The Chronicles of Narnia. This edition is complete and unabridged. "Quick!" said Eustace. "Hold hands! We mustn't get separated!" And before Jill quite knew what was happening, he had pulled her out of the door, out of the school grounds, out of England, out of our whole world into That Place. Eustace and Jill are whisked to the land of Narnia where Aslan, the great Lion, needs their help to find the missing Prince Rilian, Caspian's beloved son. The search takes them through some of the most dangerous underland of Narnia, and into the path of an evil enchantress who has dire plans for the prince... This is the sixth adventure in the exciting Chronicles of Narnia.
As expectation mounts on Christmas Eve, a boy hears sleigh bells ringing and looks out of the window in time to see Santa arrive. Santa comes down the chimney (this is a fun picture as the book is tall and thin) and delivers the presents while pretending he does not notice the boy watching. Off he rides with all his favourite reindeer, and it's time for Christmas to begin! Told in verse that's perfect to recite aloud with all the family gathered around, this poem has stood the test of time since it was first written almost 200 years ago.

He could scale curtains using a hatpin, and bring back a doll's teacup without breaking it. Girls weren't supposed to go borrowing but as Arrietty was an only child her father broke the rule, and then something happened which changed their lives. She made friends with the human boy living in the house...

'In the town they tell the story of the great pearl - how it was found and how it was lost again. They tell of Kino, the fisherman, and of his wife, Juana, and of the baby, Coyotito. And because the story has been told so often, it has taken root in every man's mind.' The Pearl is Steinbeck's heartbreaking short parable about wealth and the darkness and evil it can instill in even the most generous of men's hearts. This edition features a stunning new cover by renowned artist Bijou Karman.
