Ismeretlen szerző - Kötelezők ​röviden I.
Gyakran ​előfordul, hogy már elolvasott, de időközben elfeledett művekre vagyunk kíváncsiak, egy-egy részletre már nem emlékszünk. Mi volt Kreón kegyetlen parancsa? Kinek udvarolt Romeo Capuleték bálja előtt? Mi okozza Lear tragédiáját? Időnként persze újra elővesszük a régről ismert műveket, de bizonyára hasznos segítség lesz az emlékezet felfrissítésére ez a gyűjtemény is. Kötetünkben a középiskolai törzsanyaghoz tartozó olvasmányok tartalmi kivonatait találhatja meg az olvasó. (Ebbe a kötetbe a középiskola I. osztályban tárgyalt művek kerültek.) Nem csupán a kötelező regények, hanem színdarabok, nagyobb terjedelmű novellák is helyet kaptak benne. A világ- és a magyar irodalom alapművei szerepelnek itt, dióhéjban. Kötetünk persze nem pótolja az eredeti műveket. Nem le-, hanem rászoktatni szeretnénk az olvasásra. A rövidítés többnyire csak a cselekményvázlatot mondhatja fel, törekedtünk azonban arra, hogy az epikus alkotások hangulata megmaradjon, csak kurtítottunk a szövegen. Reményeink szerint haszonnal forgathatja ezt a könyvet minden diák, öregdiák és talán még a tanárok is.

Ismeretlen szerző - Kötelezők ​röviden III.
Sokszor, ​ha meghallunk egy ismerős címet, s hirtelen megpróbáljuk felidézni a szereplők nevét, a cselekményt (Miért nem tudott kibújni egy reggel az ágyából Gregor Samsa utazó ügynök? Milyen furcsa idegennel találkozott egy tikkasztó, meleg nyári délután Berlioz, a TÖMEGIR-nek a vezetője és fiatal költő? Hogyan vetett véget Tóth Lajos a dobozolásnak?), bizony korántsem biztos, hogy e kérdésekre rögtön tudjuk a választ. A kötelezők röviden segít memóriánk felfrissítésében, hiszen mindannyiunk közös, kedvenc élményei e művek. Jólesik néha szemelgetni köztük, s talán kedvet kapunk az újraolvasásra is. E kötetben a középiskola negyedik osztályának törzsanyagát képező műveit tárgyaljuk, a világ – és magyar irodalom klasszikus darabjainak tartalmi összefoglalását veheti kezébe az olvasó. A könnyebb eligazodás kedvéért nemcsak a drámai művek szereplőinek nevét gyűjtöttük ki az ismertetések elé, hanem minden epikus mű főbb szereplőit is. E kötetet nem lusta diákok kézikönyvének szántuk, hiszen a tartalom ismertetése nem adja vissza a mű varázsát, nem pótolhatja az olvasás által nyújtott élményeket, viszont segítséget nyújthat egy alaposabb, precízebb elemzéshez, áttekintéshez. Ezért ajánljuk vén diákoknak, szülőknek, s talán tanároknak is!

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Chris Sasaki - Sherlock ​Holmes kalandjai

Watsonhoz, akik megfejtik ezeket a rejtélyeket, és még sok más bűnügyet is felgöngyölítenek. A Klasszikusok könnyedén sorozat lehetővé teszi az ifjú olvasók számára, hogy már gyerekkorukban megtapasztalják az időtlen történetek varázsát. A könnyebb érthetőség kedvéért lerövidített és nagy gonddal átírt klasszikus regényekben ugyanazokat a fordulatokat és izgalmakat élhetik át, amelyek az eredeti történeteket közkedveltté tették.

William Shakespeare - Rebeca Vélez - Rómeó ​és Júlia
Az ​Olvass velünk! sorozat azt a célt tűzte ki maga elé, hogy közelebb hozza a klasszikus irodalmi műveket a mai kor gyermekeihez. A harmadik szint a 8-9 éves korosztályhoz szól, azokhoz, akik már rendelkeznek némi olvasási rutinnal, ám az eredeti történetek még nagyon megterhelőek lennének számukra, hiszen azok szókincse és világa egyaránt távol áll a 21. századi gyerekektől. A fiúk A kincses sziget és Robin Hood olvasmányos kalandjaiba merülhetnek el, míg a lányok betekintést nyerhetnek Rómeó és Júlia, valamint Heidi romantikus világába. A kötetek végén az író életrajza és a regények történelmi hátterének rövid összefoglalója szintén a megértést segítik

Jerome K. Jerome - Three ​Men in a Boat (Oxford Bookworms)
'I ​like work. I find it interesting... I can sit and look at it for hours.' With ideas like this, perhaps it is not a good idea to spend a holiday taking a boat trip up the River Thames. But this is what the three friends - and Montmorency the dog - decide to do. It is the sort of a holiday that is fun to remember afterwards, but not so much fun to wake up to early on a cold, wet morning. This famous book has made people laugh all over the world for a hundred years... and they are still laughing.
