Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

By: James M. Barrie

Peter Pan. If you ask your mother whether she knew about Peter Pan when she was a little girl she will say, ?Why, of course, I did, child,? and if you ask her whether he rode on a goat in those days she will say, ?What a foolish question to ask, certainly he did.? Then if you ask your grandmother whether she knew about Peter Pan when she was a girl, she also says, ?Why, of course, I did, child,? but if you ask her whether he rode on a goat in those days, she says she nev...

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

By: Washington Irving

In the bosom of one of those spacious coves which indent the eastern shore of the Hudson, at that broad expansion of the river denominated by the ancient Dutch navigators the Tappan Zee, and where they always prudently shortened sail and implored the protection of St. Nicholas when they crossed, there lies a small market town or rural port, which by some is called Greensburgh, but which is more generally and properly known by the name of Tarry Town.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

By: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

To Sherlock Holmes she is always THE woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself ...

The Prince and the Page

By: Charlotte M. Yonge

PREFACE: In these days of exactness even a child's historical romance must point to what the French term its pieces justficatives. We own that ours do not lie very deep. The picture of Simon de Montfort drawn by his wife's own household books, as quoted by Mrs. Everett Green in her Lives of the Princesses, and that of Edward I. in Carte's History, and more recently in the Greatest of the Plantagenets, furnished the two chief influences of the story. The household account...
