Sketches, Criticisms, etc

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Excerpt: MY companion enjoyed a cheap reputation for wit and insight. He was by habit and reputes a satirist. If he did occasionally condemn anything or anybody who richly deserved it and whose dements had hitherto escaped, it was simply because he condemned everything and everybody. While I was with him he disposed of St. Paul with an epigram, shook my reverence for Shakespeare in a neat antithesis, and fell foul of the Almighty himself, on the score of one or two out o...

Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

By: Kate Douglas Wiggin

Excerpt: WE ARE SEVEN. THE old stage coach was rumbling along the dusty road that runs from Maplewood to Riverboro. The day was as warm as midsummer, though it was only the middle of May, and Mr. Jeremiah Cobb was favoring the horses as much as possible, yet never losing sight of the fact that he carried the mail. The hills were many, and the reins lay loosely in his hands as he lolled back in his seat and extended one foot and leg luxuriously over the dashboard. His bri...

Queen Zixi of IX : Or the Story of the Magic Cloak

By: L. Frank Baum

Excerpt: THE WEAVING OF THE MAGIC CLOAK. The fairies assembled one moonlit night in a pretty clearing of the ancient forest of Burzee. The clearing was in the form of a circle, and all around stood giant oak and fir trees, while in the center the grass grew green and soft as velvet. If any mortal had ever penetrated so far into the great forest and could have looked upon the fairy circle by daylight, he might perhaps have seen a tiny path worn in the grass by the feet of...

Sir Nigel

By: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Excerpt: DAME HISTORY is so austere a lady that if one has been so ill-advised as to take a liberty with her; one should hasten to make amends by repentance and confession. Events have been transposed to the extent of some few months in this narrative in order to preserve the continuity and evenness of the story. I hope so small a divergence may seem a venial error after so many centuries. For the rest, it is as accurate as a good deal of research and hard work could mak...

Rinkitink in Oz

By: L. Frank Baum

Excerpt: Introducing this Story Here is a story with a boy hero, and a boy of whom you have never before heard. There are girls in the story, too, including our old friend Dorothy, and some of the characters wander a good way from the Land of Oz before they all assemble in the Emerald City to take part in Ozma's banquet. Indeed, I think you will find this story quite different from the other histories of Oz, but I hope you will not like it the less on that account.
