    The acclaimed children’s author shares vibrant retellings of the Bard’s timeless tales in this classic, illustrated collection for young readers.   As both a writer and a mother, E. Nesbit wanted an engaging way to share the great works of Shakespeare with children. In The Children’s Shakespeare, she adapted eleven of his plays—including Hamlet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and others—into accessible stories that creatively capture all the essential elements.  The Children’s Shakespeare offers an ideal introduction to these works, simply told yet preserving their wit, humor, emotion, and drama. In E. Nesbit's gifted hands, these stories emerge with all the charm and grace of the very best fairy tales. Written in modern English and each no more than ten pages in length, the eleven plays featured in this volume afford children the opportunity to discover the magic of Shakespeare for themselves

    Morgue Ship by RAY BRADBURY - This was Burnett's last trip. Three more shelves to fill with space-slain warriors—and he would be among the living again. 
    He heard the star-port grind open, and the movement of the metal claws groping into space, and then the star-port closed. 
    There was another dead man aboard the Constellation. 
    Sam Burnett shook his long head, trying to think clearly. Pallid and quiet, three bodies lay on the cold transparent tables around him; machines stirred, revolved, hummed. He didn't see them. He didn't see anything but a red haze over his mind. It blotted out the far wall of the laboratory where the shelves went up and down, numbered in scarlet, keeping the bodies of soldiers from all further harm. 
    Burnett didn't move. He stood there in his rumpled white surgical gown, staring at his fingers gloved in bone-white rubber; feeling all tight and wild inside himself. It went on for days. Moving the ship. Opening the star-port. Extending the retriever claw. Plucking some poor warrior's body out of the void. 
    He didn't like it any more. Ten years is too long to go back and forth from Earth to nowhere. You came out empty and you went back full-cargoed with a lot of warriors who didn't laugh or talk or smoke, who just lay on their shelves, all one hundred of them, waiting for a decent burial. 
    "Number ninety-eight." Coming matter of fact and slow, Rice's voice from the ceiling radio hit Burnett. 
    "Number ninety-eight," Burnett repeated. "Working on ninety-five, ninety-six and ninety-seven now. Blood-pumps, preservative, slight surgery." Off a million miles away his voice was talking. It sounded deep. It didn't belong to him anymore.

    “The beauty of sky, music, and the belief in ‘extraordinary things’ triumph in this whimsical and magical tale” (Publishers Weekly) about a girl in search of her past who discovers a secret rooftop world in Paris.Everyone thinks that Sophie is an orphan. True, there were no other recorded female survivors from the shipwreck that left baby Sophie floating in the English Channel in a cello case, but Sophie remembers seeing her mother wave for help. Her guardian tells her it is almost impossible that her mother is still alive—but “almost impossible” means “still possible.” And you should never ignore a possible.So when the Welfare Agency writes to her guardian, threatening to send Sophie to an orphanage, they takes matters into their own hands and flee to Paris to look for Sophie’s mother, starting with the only clue they have—the address of the cello maker.Evading the French authorities, she meets Matteo and his network of rooftoppers—urchins who live in the hidden spaces above the city. Together they scour the city in a search for Sophie’s mother—but can they find her before Sophie is caught and sent back to London? Or, more importantly, before she loses hope?Phillip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials series, calls Rooftoppers “the work of a writer with an utterly distinctive voice and a wild imagination.”
