    After her parents' bitter and brutal divorce, young Maisie Farange finds herself pushed back and forth by her selfish mother, Ida, and her vain father, Beale, who value her only as a tool for provoking one another... And when both parents move on and remarry, Maisie-solitary, observant and wise beyond her years- is drawn into a messy and very adult world of lies and betrayal; until she is finally forced to choose her own way of independent living... A deeply serious and unsettling work from a child's perspective, about a child's and all children's intrinsic value as such—innocent and vulnerable. Another great work by a literary master!

    Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale of an orphaned boy, a lama on a powerful quest, and two imperialist nations butting heads over one magical country Set in the former Lahore, India, against the backdrop of an imperialist war between Russia and Great Britain, Kim is the coming-of-age story of Kimball O’Hara, a low-caste orphan boy roaming the streets with a “magic” talisman around his neck. The pendant contains three magic parchments sewn into a leather amulet case—papers that could whisk him away from the world he knows and trusts.   One afternoon, Kim takes pity on an elderly lama who declares he is searching for wisdom and enlightenment at the River of the Arrow, and becomes the old man’s guide, savior, and friend. Together, the odd pair travels the Grand Trunk Road, dodging cutpurses and road agents until the “Little Friend of all the World” becomes a little disciple to the wise old lama. But when Kim’s father’s old regimental chaplain runs into the lama and his young chela on their travels, a big change threatens to disrupt the friends’ plans to find enlightenment and happiness on their shared quest.   Widely considered to be Rudyard Kipling’s masterpiece, Kim combines sweeping adventure with a brilliant coming-of-age story. Part children’s tale, part spy thriller, part examination of the twilight of the Victorian empire, Kim is a classic page-turner.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    At the Back of the North Wind

    The Scottish author’s literary masterpiece—the fantastical story of a young boy’s adventures with a woman of supernatural powers. Historically, At the Back of the North Wind ranks as George MacDonald’s most well-known and enduring book, the haunting tale of little Diamond, a simple London cabman’s son and his dreamy encounters with the mysterious, wise, powerful, comforting, and occasionally frightening lady known as North Wind. Their eerie nighttime adventures have captivated readers old and young ever since the book’s publication in 1871. It has been published in more editions than any of MacDonald’s works, and ranks as one of the few (perhaps only) title of MacDonald’s that has likely never been out of print. Its skillfully woven intermingling of realism and fantasy set MacDonald apart as a writer of uniqueness and distinction in the early 1870s as his reputation widened. This edition for The Cullen Collection is unedited in any way.

    The classic collection of the tales of Robin Hood, the bow-wielding hero who steals from the rich and gives to the poor.   Howard Pyle has provided possibly the best and most complete rendering of this classic tale of the famous yeoman-thief of Sherwood Forest. Each chapter of this collection offers new and exciting stories, including the famous scenes of Little John and his staff besting Robin on the bridge, Robin winning the golden arrow at the Sheriff of Nottingham’s archery contest, his complicity with courageous Will Scarlet and musical Alan-a-Dale, the continual outsmarting of the Sheriff, and many others. Robin Hood continues to stand as an exemplary model of fair play, generosity, and compassion.
