    This classic political satire by George Orwell attaches the idea of totalitarian government using farm animals as characters. The animals try to run the farm on their own and create a paradise of progress and equality, but certain animals (namely the pigs) begin to take control and take away freedoms. With great parallels to many governments, this book is a must-read. A few complete and unabridged editions are available. The Signet Classic Edition has a preface by Russell Baker and is 144 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This is a classic tale of equal appeal to children and adults. On one level, it is the story of an airman's discovery of the Little Prince, a small boy from another planet who has stories of intergalactic travel. 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 new translation contains Saint-Exupery's delightful illustrations.

    Kino is a poor pearl diver like his father and his grandfather before him, but he lives in a quiet contentment with his wife Juana and their baby son. When his son is stung by a scorpion, the doctor refuses to see him because Kino has no money to pay him. That afternoon when Kino dives, his wife prays that he will find a great pearl so they can pay for a doctor. Kino does indeed find a large pearl as "perfect as the moon," and it seems that the baby is healed almost simultaneously. Kino begins to think of all that he can do with the money he will get from the pearl, but when he goes to sell it the buyers will not offer him the money he knows it is worth. When people try and steal the pearl, Kino reacts with a vengeance, and his wife begs him to get rid of the pearl and its evil. But the longer it is in Kino's possession, the harder it is for him to give the pearl up. - Melissa

    Stephen Kumalo is the reverend of Ndotsheni, which is a small town in South Africa. At the start of the story, he receives a very important letter from Theophilus Msimangu, who is a reverend in Johannesburg and has met Gertrude, who is Kumalo's sister and also very sick. He requests that Kumalo come to the Mission House in Sophiatown. Kumalo also decides it is time to seek out his own son, Absalom, who moved there years ago and has not so much as written since he has been away. Upon his arrival in Johannesburg, Stephen sees many things which trouble him. Though his town is distraught in poverty and famine, the troubles are different in the big city. Between apartheid and discrimination, crime, shanty-town living, and children born out of wedlock, Kumalo is most disturbed when he finds that these things have started to get the best of his very own relatives. When he finds Gertrude, she has nothing but the dirty clothes on her back and her young son. He decides to take her and her son in and finds them a more appropriate place to stay until they will return to Ndotsheni. Then he embarks on a seemingly endless search for his son. Finally, they find the house of his girlfriend, who is pregnant with Absalom's son. The truth about Absalom's life and the things he has done shows Kumalo more pain and disappointment than he has ever known. However, there are lessons learned here, and there is apparent good that outweighs the bad. Though Stephen Kumalo sees tragedy and hopelessness, he learns his beliefs in his religion and the faith he has in people can be enough to rebuild his leaky church, spread milk to dying children in his village, bring plenty to the parched lands, and to heal lives. Alan Paton's raw epic novel has even become a selection from Oprah's Book Club.
