Big Cats

By: Angela Beesley

Text Books

Introduction: Foreword to Parents. Wikijunior books welcomes you to Big Cats, a free children's book from the Wikibooks community. Big cats are some of Earth's grandest treasures, and their stories excite the imagination of kids of all ages. Many of these lords of the wild are endangered, and the children who will one day shoulder our responsibilities need to learn to admire and love our world...their world. After all we appreciate what we understand, and save what we ap...

A Dream of Armageddon

By: Herbert George Wells

The man with the white face entered the carriage at Rugby. He moved slowly in spite of the urgency of his porter, and even while he was still on the platform I noted how ill he seemed. He dropped into the corner over against me with a sigh, made an incomplete attempt to arrange his travelling shawl, and became motionless, with his eyes staring vacantly. Presently he was moved by a sense of my observation, looked up at me, and put out a spiritless hand for his newspaper. ...

The Book of Dreams and Ghosts

By: Andrew Lang

PREFACE: THE chief purpose of this book is, if fortune helps, to entertain people interested in the kind of narratives here collected. For the sake of orderly arrangement, the stories are classed in different grades, as they advance from the normal and familiar to the undeniably startling. At the same time an account of the current theories of Apparitions is offered, in language as free from technicalities as possible. According to modern opinion every ghost is a halluci...

The Strange Disappearance of Joe Cardona

By: Maxwell Grant

CHAPTER I. THE PURPLE DEATH: LOOK at this, Cardona. Fiercely, Police Commissioner Ralph Weston brandished a newspaper before the eyes of his ace inspector, Joe Cardona. The headline, in a big-typed streamer, read: PURPLE DEATH STRIKES AGAIN His swarthy face grim, Cardona received the newspaper with tight-fisted hands. He grimaced when he noted that the newspaper had foregone the usual red ink that it used for sensational headlines. The big letters were printed in purple;...

Damaged Goods

By: Upton Sinclair

My endeavor has been to tell a simple story, preserving as closely as possible the spirit and feeling of the original. I have tried, as it were, to take the play to pieces, and build a novel out of the same material. I have not felt at liberty to embellish M. Brieux's ideas, and I have used his dialogue word for word wherever possible. Unless I have mis-read the author, his sole purpose in writing LES AVARIES was to place a number of most important facts before the minds...

Driven from Home

By: Horatio Alger, Jr.

CHAPTER I: A boy of sixteen, with a small gripsack in his hand, trudged along the country road. He was of good height for his age, strongly built, and had a frank, attractive face. He was naturally of a cheerful temperament, but at present his face was grave, and not without a shade of anxiety. This can hardly be a matter of surprise when we consider that he was thrown upon his own resources, and that his available capital consisted of thirty-seven cents in money, in add...

Dream Days

By: Kenneth Grahame

Fortunately there existed a wide range of subjects, of healthier tone than those already enumerated, in which we were free to choose for ourselves, and which we would have scorned to consider education; and in these we freely followed each his own particular line, often attaining an amount of special knowledge which struck our ignorant elders as simply uncanny. For Edward, the uniforms, accoutrements, colours, and mottoes of the regiments composing the British Army had a special glamour.

A Benefit Match

By: Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

If I have one fault—which I am not prepared to admit—it is that I am too good-natured. I remember on one occasion, when staying in the country with a lady who had known me from boyhood, protesting in a restrained, gentlemanly manner when her youthful son began to claw me at breakfast. At breakfast, I'll trouble you, and an early one at that! Well, James, she said, I always thought that you were good- natured, whatever else you were! A remark which, besides containing a n...

A Bill for the Better Promotion of Oppression on the Sabbath Day

By: Thomas Love Peacock

FORASMUCH as the Canter's and Fanatic's Lord Sayeth peace and joy are by me abhorred; And would fill each Sunday with gloom and pain For all too poor his regard to obtain; And forasmuch as the laws heretofore Have not sufficiently squeezed the poor Be it therefore enacted by Commons, King And Lords, a crime for any thing To be done on the Sabbath by any rank Excepting the rich. No beer may be drank, Food eaten, rest taken, away from home, And each House shall a Sunday pr...
