    This novel is one of Jane Austen's most characterized works. Emma Woodhouse is the lovely, lively, willful, and fallible heroine. Emma's governess finds happiness as a bride to a kind and well-off local gentleman, and Emma flatters herself to think that she alone secured the marriage and that she possesses a special talent for "match-making." From there we find an entertaining sequence of comic missteps and misunderstandings as Emma tries to find a suitable husband for her friend, Harriet Smith. As Emma blunders her way through the mysteries of her social world, Austen evokes for her readers a cast of unforgettable characters and a detailed portrait of a small English village undergoing a historical transition. A wonderful comedy and romance for all to enjoy. Three unabridged versions are available. The economical Bantam Classic edition (048571) features the unabridged text (no extras). The Wordsworth Classics edition (000926) includes an introduction, notes, and vintage black and white illustrations. The Dover Thrift edition (033440) includes a short introduction. ~ Elise

    A stimulating novel about a young boy in middle school who has trouble fitting in with the crowd, chiefly because he thinks and learns differently than most students. While this young person struggles to overcome labels and the misconceptions of students who prefer bullying to compassion, readers eventually learn that not everyone with value is destined to be popular. Readers also learn that even young people, who are ridiculed for thinking or acting differently, still need someone to reach out to them with the gift of friendship. This novel helps to communicate the fact that children with learning difficulties are still human beings in need of love and acceptance. This novel presents such a vital message that it should be required reading in all schools. 196 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Many people forget that this popular movie is actually based on this classic novel by Carlo Collodi. The details and lessons in the book are greater than those in the movie, and Pinocchio is much more rebellious, naughty, and lazy. He does eventually begin to think about others before himself and is finally transformed from a small wooden puppet into a real boy. Perfect for reading aloud to younger kids, this novel is composed of short chapters and includes black and white sketches on every few pages. This is a complete and unabridged edition and is the one recommended for use with the Veritas Comprehension Guide. Puffin Classic, 272 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    "It was in Warwick Castle that I came across the curious stranger whom I am going to talk about" – and so Mark Twain introduces us to the "true" story of a nineteenth-century American man who finds himself transported back to medieval times after a hard hit to the head. We meet the curious stranger, Hank Morgan, as a fellow tourist and soon find that he knows much more about the castle's history than even the tour guide. The rest of this fast-paced novel is a reading from Mr. Morgan's journal, provided as proof of his unbelievable Round Table adventures. Cleverly using his nineteenth-century knowledge, Morgan fools the court into thinking that he is a wizard – perhaps even more powerful than Merlin! Assuming the superiority of the nineteenth century and blind to its flaws, Morgan attempts to modernize the middle ages with hilarious, and sometimes disastrous, results. Hidden beneath the comical scenes is a thought-provoking social satire, making this a true intellectual classic. 316 pages, paperback. – Rachel

    I love when a Jan Brett book comes across my desk, and this one is my favorite so far! Accompanied with the beautiful, detailed illustrations you’ve come to expect from Brett, this story tells the tale of a turtle who lives by the water and moves so slowly that moss begins to grow on her back, hence the name Mossy. With the moss there are ferns and flowers that make her a beautifully unique turtle. One day, she spots a boy turtle in the pond, but before they can speak, she is captured by a museum curator and her niece. While she is carefully cared for in the museum, the niece notices that Mossy is terribly unhappy there. It will take some clever thinking to get Mossy released, but will the plan work? A charming tale full of wonderful nature illustrations that is sure to be a well-loved addition in your library. 30 hardcover pages. – Laura

    No one owns the sun, because the sun is too large and too great for one person to own. No one owns the stars because they are too far away for anyone to own. No one owns the wind, because it is a wanderer that visits everyone and every place. These are simple truths that Big Jim shares with his son. However, Big Jim's son's life is turned upside down when he learns that one of earth's most beautiful things can be "owned." This touching story was written and illustrated by Stacy Chbosky when she was only 14 years old when she won the "National Written and Illustrated By…Awards Contest for Students" in 1987. 27 pgs, pb. ~ Elise

    Henry Huggins doesn't think his life is very exciting, but everything changes when he finds a dog. Well, actually the dog finds him, and Henry names the dog Ribsy. This book holds six such stories of Henry's adventures with Ribsy. My favorite is when Henry buys two guppies for just 79 cents, which seems like a great deal at the time. The two guppies quickly turn into hundreds, but now Henry is running out of room and interest!
