Die Silwer Stoel (Afrikaans, Paperback): C. S. Lewis Die Silwer Stoel (Afrikaans, Paperback)
C. S. Lewis; Translated by Kobus Geldenhuys
R163 Discovery Miles 1 630 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Net toe Jill Pole na die langste en goorste skoolkwartaal in haar lewe begin opsien, gebeur iets magies: Sy en Eustace Scrubb beland in Narnia! Aslan gee aan hulle vier tekens en 'n opdrag: om Prins Rilian, wat jare gelede spoorloos verdwyn het, op te spoor en terug te bring na Kair Paravel. Ongelukkig is die kinders so meegevoer deur hulle nuwe omgewing dat die eerste drie tekens heeltemal by hulle verbygaan. Sal hulle die vierde teken ook mis – of sal hulle daarin slaag om Prins Rilian met sy sterwende vader te herenig? Die silwer stoel, briljant vertaal deur Kobus Geldenhuys, verskyn hiermee vir die heel eerste keer in Afrikaans.

R163 Discovery Miles 1 630 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Alhoewel die eerste vier boeke in die wereldbekende Kronieke van Narnia met verloop van tyd drupsgewys en deur verskillende uitgewers in Afrikaans vertaal is, is Protea Boekhuis se publikasie van Die vaart van die dagbreker 'n eerste: Dis nie net die vyfde titel in die reeks se debuut in Afrikaans nie, maar ook die eerste van Kobus Geldenhuys se uitmuntende vertalings wat uiteindelik al sewe boeke in die reeks onder die Protea-vaandel sal verenig. In Die vaart van die dagbreker beland Edmund en Lucy Pevensie saam met hulle mislike nefie Eustace Scrubb aan boord van die dagbreker – die skip waarmee Prins Kaspian onderweg is na die eensame eilande op soek na die sewe lords van Narnia wat jare gelede spoorloos verdwyn het. Op die gevaarlike reis trotseer hulle allerlei uitdagings– maar die droom om tot by Aslan se land aan die einde van die wereld te seil bly groter as enige vrees vir die onbekende.

Jane Austen

The Penguin English Library Edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 'No sooner had he made it clear to himself and his friends that she had hardly a good feature in her face, than he began to find it was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes ...' When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Lord of the Flies (Paperback, School Edition): William Golding Lord of the Flies (Paperback, School Edition)
William Golding 2
R116 Discovery Miles 1 160 Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

A plane crashes on an uninhabited island and the only survivors, a group of schoolboys, assemble on the beach and wait to be rescued. By day they inhabit a land of bright fantastic birds and dark blue seas, but at night their dreams are haunted by the image of a terrifying beast.

In this, his first novel, William Golding gave the traditional adventure story an ironic, devastating twist. The boys' delicate sense of order fades, and their childish fears are transformed into something deeper and more primitive. Their games take on a horrible significance, and before long the well-behaved party of schoolboys has turned into a tribe of faceless, murderous savages.

First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies is now recognized as a classic, one of the most celebrated of all modern novels.
