Tar Baby - Tales of Brer Rabbit (Paperback): Joel Chandler Harris Tar Baby - Tales of Brer Rabbit (Paperback)
Joel Chandler Harris
R164 R127 Discovery Miles 1 270 Save R37 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In the Georgia swamplands and plantations, a cast of anthropomorphic animals enacts daily rituals of pursuit, trickery and escape. In this pre-Loony Toons world of sassy, talking beasts, Brer Rabbit is the hero -- duelling both verbally and physically with those who would eat him, and perpetually in the monstrous shadow of the Tar Baby.

The casual publication in 1877 of "The Tar Baby" by Joel Chandler Harris, found Harris his literary vocation. In the following years he developed his own plantation mythology in a series of volumes, narrated by "Uncle Remus", telling colloquial tales of the wily hero Brer Rabbit (an obvious precursor of Bugs Bunny) and his clashes with the villain, Brer Fox. Tar Baby is a collection of some of the finest of these often surreal and grotesque stories, in the original African American dialect, and is presented as a classic of American literature for both adult readers and children of all ages.

Sense and Sensibility (Paperback, Reissue): Jane Austen Sense and Sensibility (Paperback, Reissue)
Jane Austen; Introduction by Stephen Arkin; Notes by Stephen Arkin; Series edited by Keith Carabine
R68 R51 Discovery Miles 510 Save R17 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Introduction and Notes by Professor Stephen Arkin, San Francisco University. 'Young women who have no economic or political power must attend to the serious business of contriving material security'. Jane Austen's sardonic humour lays bare the stratagems, the hypocrisy and the poignancy inherent in the struggle of two very different sisters to achieve respectability. Sense and Sensibility is a delightful comedy of manners in which the sisters Elinor and Marianne represent these two qualities. Elinor's character is one of Augustan detachment, while Marianne, a fervent disciple of the Romantic Age, learns to curb her passionate nature in the interests of survival. This book, the first of Austen's novels to be published, remains as fresh a cautionary tale today as it ever was.

In a period of English History that never happened, when Good King James III is on the throne, and the whole country is ravaged by wolves which have migrated through the newly-opened Channel Tunnel. When orphans Bonnie and Sylvia fall into the hands of evil Miss Slighcarp, they need all their wits - and the help of Simon the goose-boy - to escape unscathed, for the governess is more cruel and merciless than the wolves that surround the great house of Willoughby Chase. Filled with brilliantly-drawn Dickensian characters, it would make an excellent choice for strong preteen readers who like an old-fashioned story with a strong plot and good characterisation. This book often appears on lists of best-loved children's books.
