In the year 2025 a huge aircraft rose from its moorings, bearing Julian 5th into one of the greatest series of adventures that ever befell a man. The goal of the ship was Mars, but Fate rule... More > otherwise, and Julian was forced to land upon the moon, where he was captured by a queer race of creatures, half-human, half-animal—the Va-gas. The story tells how Julian met and won the Moon Maid and carried her back to earth. Subsequently a savage race of Moon Men invaded and conquered the earth. For years the Earth Men suffered under the rule of their conquerors. Gradually their efforts were rewarded, and they forced their enemies over the mountains to the narrow plain by the great western sea. Then a descendant of Julian 5th appeared and led the hosts in the last great battle that freed the earth of its conquerors. The story is full of colorful, weird and spectacular scenes and rapid and thrilling action.< Less
Alice In Blunderland By John Kendrick Bangs
eBook (ePub): $2.99
"Oh dear!" cried Alice impatiently, as she sat rocking in her chair, listening to the pattering of the rain upon the roof of the veranda. "I do wish there was something to do, or... More > somebody to do, or somewhere to go. The Gov'ment ought to provide covered playgrounds for children on wet days. It wouldn't cost much, to put a glass cover on the Park!" "A very good, idea! I'll make a note of that," said a squeaky little voice at her side. Alice sprang to her feet in surprise. She had supposed she was alone, and for a moment she was frightened, but a glance around reassured her, for strange to say, seated on the radiator warming his toes was her old friend the Hatter, the queer old chap she had met in her marvellous trip through Wonderland, and with him was the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat, and the White Knight from Looking Glass Land.< Less

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer By Mark Twain
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Most of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred; one or two were experiences of my own, the rest those of boys who were schoolmates of mine. Huck Finn is drawn from life; Tom Sawyer... More > also, but not from an individual — he is a combination of the characteristics of three boys whom I knew, and therefore belongs to the composite order of architecture. The odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children and slaves in the West at the period of this story — that is to say, thirty or forty years ago. Although my book is intended mainly for the entertainment of boys and girls, I hope it will not be shunned by men and women on that account, for part of my plan has been to try to pleasantly remind adults of what they once were themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked, and what queer enterprises they sometimes engaged in.< Less
Home Fires in France By Dorothy Canfield
eBook (PDF): $1.99
Perhaps the first thing which brought our boys to a halt, and a long, long look around them, was the age of the place. Apparently it has—the statement is hardly exaggerated—always been... More > there. As a matter of historical fact it has been there for more than a thousand years. On hearing that, the American boys always gasped. They were used to the conception of the great age of "historical" spots, by which they meant cities in which great events have occurred—Paris, Rome, Stratford-on-Avon, Granada. But that an inconsiderable settlement of a thousand inhabitants, where nothing in particular ever happened beyond the birth, life, and death of its people, should have kept its identity through a thousand years gave them, so they said, "a queer feeling."< Less

Now I can turn my eyes toward the mill again, and watch the unresting wheel sending out its diamond jets of water. That little girl is watching it too; she has been standing on just the same spot at... More > the edge of the water ever since I paused on the bridge. And that queer white cur with the brown ear seems to be leaping and barking in ineffectual remonstrance with the wheel; perhaps he is jealous because his playfellow in the beaver bonnet is so rapt in its movement. It is time the little playfellow went in, I think; and there is a very bright fire to tempt her: the red light shines out under the deepening gray of the sky. It is time, too, for me to leave off resting my arms on the cold stone of this bridge.... ISBN: 978-1-257-85703-6< Less
