    One night two young couples run into an enchanted forest in an attempt to escape their problems. But these four humans do not realize that the forest is filled with fairies and hobgoblins who love making mischief. When Oberon, the Fairy King, and his loyal hobgoblin servant, Puck, intervene in human affairs, the fate of these young couples is magically and hilariously transformed. Like a classic fairy tale, this retelling of William Shakespeare's most beloved comedy is perfect for older readers who will find much to treasure and for younger readers who will love hearing the story read aloud.

    An Inspector Calls, book cover (fair copyright use) Priestly, J.B.
    1946 play; Penguin, 2001
    Book details at OpenLibrary
    Book/Author article in Wikipedia
    First performed in 1945 in the Soviet Union and 1946 in the UK ,and conveying a strong -if not manicheist- political message, the play is a three-act drama, which takes place on a single night in 1912, and focuses on the prosperous middle-class Birling family, who live in a comfortable home in Brumley, "an industrial city in the north Midlands". The family is visited by a man calling himself Inspector Goole, who questions the family about the suicide of a young working-class woman, Eva Smith (also known as Daisy Renton). The family are interrogated and revealed to have been responsible for the young woman's exploitation, abandonment and social ruin, effectively leading to her death. Long considered part of the repertory of classic "drawing room” theatre, the play has also been hailed as a scathing critique of the hypocrisies of Victorian/Edwardian English society and as an expression of Priestley’s Socialist political principles.

    An allegory on the realities of communism, from a capitalist point of view, Animal Farm tells a story of a farm in which the animals decide to rule themselves, and all animals are equal. The inevitable catch, as the reader will come to find out, is that all societies tend to have a ruling class. When all the decent members of society try to adhere to the social rules of equality for everyone, the role of leadership and authority is left to the pigs.

    Using these records and voices as a sort of poetic census, she creates a narrative of the river, tracking its life from source to sea. The voices are wonderfully varied and idiomatic - they include a poacher, a ferryman, a sewage worker and milk worker, a forester, swimmers and canoeists - and are interlinked with historic and mythic voices, drowned voices, dreaming voices and marginal notes which act as markers along the way.
