9780962784170: The National Review Treasury of Classic Children's Literature: Volume Two

Last season we published The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature—a lavishly illustrated book that featured forty-two delightful and wholesome children's stories from some of America’s best writers from a century past. We are now pleased to introduce The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature, Volume Two, with stories again personally selected by William F. Buckley Jr. Like the first volume, this collection contains dozens of stories from literary giants, many first published in St. Nicholas Magazine, the famous journal that established a golden age of children’s literature.In The National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature, Volume Two, you will find: Mark Twain’s entertaining (but too-forgotten) Tom Sawyer, Detective; Jack London’s exciting sea tale, "The Cruise of the Dazzler"; Louisa May Alcott’s "The Blind Lark" and the delightful "Daisy’s Jewel-Box and How She Filled It"; Frances Hodgsen Burnett’s exquisite "The Troubles of Queen Silver-Bell" and "The Cozy Lion"; Frank Baum’s "Aunt 'Phroney’s Boy"; two of Rudyard Kipling's famous Jungle Book stories, "The King's Ankus" and "Toomai of the Elephants"; and much more.

From the Publisher:

Containing stories from National Review's private collection of St. Nicholas Magazine volumes (spanning the period from 1874 through the 1930s), this beautifully crafted and lavishly illustrated book includes some of the most entertaining, touching, and wholesome children's stories that have ever graced paper.

The National Review Treasury of Classic Children's Literature brings back over forty literary gems--many long forgotten. Now, in the light of a new generation, they are as radiant, if not more radiant, than they were when first published. It will take the family who owns it on an exciting voyage, back to the Golden Era of children's literature--a more innocent time when the famous St. Nicholas Magazine offered the youth of America a monthly cornucopia of wonderful stories, tales, fables, and adventures, written by the literary giants of the time.

An unsurpassed compilation of wonderful children's stories by great writers--or in the opinion of many, the greatest writers--this is a volume that can be counted on to provide youngsters and teens with superlative prose and poetry that entertain and, more importantly, promote and instill those values and lessons increasingly needed in our current culture.

About the Author:

The legendary founder of the modern conservative movement, William F. Buckley Jr. was the author of many celebrated nonfiction books, including God and Man at Yale, as well as the bestselling Blackford Oakes spy novels and Elvis in the Morning.
