Children will delight in the further adventures of Dorothy, Glendda the munchkins and her friends as they revisit Oz. Frank Baum was a famous author of children's books.

In The Emerald City of Oz, Oz was isolated form the rest of the world by magic. Baum did this to end the Oz series, but he restarted the series with this book due to financial needs. A young munchkin boy lives with his uncle in the wilderness. They have almost starved. He travels to see a magician and while there sees a powder that will restore things to life.

Lois Lowry - The Giver
In the "ideal" world into which Jonas was born, everybody has sensibly agreed that well-matched married couples will raise exactly two offspring, one boy and one girl. These children's adolescent sexual impulses will be stifled with specially prescribed drugs; at age 12 they will receive an appropriate career assignment, sensibly chosen by the community's Elders. This is a world in which the old live in group homes and are "released"--to great celebration--at the proper time; the few infants who do not develop according to schedule are also "released," but with no fanfare. Lowry's development of this civilization is so deft that her readers, like the community's citizens, will be easily seduced by the chimera of this ordered, pain-free society. Until the time that Jonas begins training for his job assignment--the rigorous and prestigious position of Receiver of Memory--he, too, is a complacent model citizen. But as his near-mystical training progresses, and he is weighed down and enriched with society's collective memories of a world as stimulating as it was flawed, Jonas grows increasingly aware of the hypocrisy that rules his world. With a storyline that hints at Christian allegory and an eerie futuristic setting, this intriguing novel calls to mind John Christopher's Tripods trilogy and Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match Girl. Lowry is once again in top form--raising many questions while answering few, and unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers. Ages 12-14.
Astrid Lindgren - Pippi Longstocking
Pippi Longstocking is nine years old. She has just moved into Villa Villekulla where she lives all by herself with a horse, a monkey, and a big suitcase full of gold coins. The grown-ups in the village try to make Pippi behave in ways that they think a little girl should, but Pippi has other ideas. She would much rather spend her days arranging wild, exciting adventures to enjoy with her neighbours, Tommy and Annika, or entertaining everyone she meets with her outrageous stories. Pippi thinks nothing of wrestling a circus strongman, dancing a polka with burglars, or tugging a bull's tail. Generations of children have fallen in love with Pippi Longstocking. Just like Tommy and Annika, readers are instantly charmed by her warmth and sense of fun. Astrid Lindgren's children's classic first appeared in 1945. Astrid once commented, 'I write to amuse the child within me, and can only hope that other children may have some fun that way, too.' When she was growing up, Lauren Child loved Astrid Lindgren's books. She remembers: 'I discovered Pippi when I was about eight years old and found her completely inspiring.' Known and loved as the creator of some equally feisty little girls - notably Clarice Bean and Lola - Lauren has brought her own inimitable style to this beautifully-illustrated edition of Pippi Longstocking.

This volume includes an introduction on the history of folk tales in Scotland and the superstitions surrounding them, and notes on the authors.

Realising quickly that this painter has more money than sense, Ivy's in-laws order her to sit for him, and to do anything else he demands. But not everyone is happy.

Mary Norton - The Borrowers Afield
The end of the story of The Borrowers was, as it turned out, by no means the end of Pod, Homily and their daughter Arrietty. They escaped to the fields where their cousins lived, but it was a long and dangerous journey. It was up the azalea bank, through the privet hedge and across the orchard, and they were hiding from humans and being attached by insects. But at last they found a new home and adapted themselves superbly to mid-field conditions. It was harder work in every way than under-floor borrowing, but to Arrietty the life was enchanting
Eiko Kadono - Kiki's Delivery Service
"A lovely story that became a classic in Japan and a popular animated home video throughout North America." Kiki is a resourceful, spunky girl who follows her maternal tradition to be a witch. She possesses only one gift of witchcraft -- the power to fly. Like all young witches, she sets out at age 12 to find a town of her own. With her ever-present companion Jiji -- a cynical and faithful black cat -- Kiki departs on her broomstick and arrives at a big town near the ocean. Though nervous at first, she soon sets up a business delivering packages. Kiki meets all kinds of people and has many adventures. She befriends the thief who stole her broomstick and saves the town's traditional New Year's marathon with some courageous and timely flying. Throughout, Kiki's confidence and self-awareness grows as she learns to value her unique talents. And with Kiki's help, the townspeople realize that everyone has some "magic" that gives them their own special character and vitality. This is a charming and delightful tale that is reminiscent of children's favorites "The Worst Witch" by Jill Murphy and Astrid Lindgren's "Adventures of Pippi Longstocking." Black and white line drawings sprinkled throughout reveal the humor and warmth in everything Kiki does.
