Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend.

It is Swift’s best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. Like many other authors, Swift uses the journey as the backdrop for his satire. He invents a second author, Captain Lemuel Gulliver, first a surgeon and then a captain of several ships, who narrates and speaks directly to the reader from his own experience.
Under the series ’Young Readers Classic’, this book is an adaptation of the original novel. Retold in a simple language, the book contains colorful illustrations that make the reading more interesting.
It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."
A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.
A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.
A Wrinkle in Time is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.

Путешествия Гулливера — сатирико-фантастический роман Джонатана Свифта, в котором ярко и остроумно высмеиваются человеческие и общественные пороки. В первой части знаменитого романа Свифта чудом спасшийся после бури корабельный врач Гулливер попадает в удивительную страну крошечных человечков, но самых настоящих человечков - Лилипутию. Необыкновенные приключения ожидают Гулливера в этой стране, где деревья не выше нашего куста смородины, а самые большие дома ниже стола. Приключения Гулливера продолжаются во второй части романа, но уже в стране великанов. Гулливер сам чувствовал себя великаном среди лилипутов, а теперь среди великанов - хрупким кузнечиком, которого легко раздавить. Злополучный путешественник, испытавший во время своих странствий невзгоды и опасности, Гулливер был наконец счастлив, что вернулся к таким же людям, как он.
