On the second day of advent, this bookseller brought to you not one…but two books.
Adventure Classics for Boys by Daniel Defoe and Robert Louis Stevenson features three classic tales ‘Robinson Crusoe’, ‘Treasure Island’ and ‘Kidnapped’ in a lovely navy blue, gold embossed hard back with fantastic illustrations throughout. This book and the version for girls marks the return to a classic books theme this Christmas with so many old editions celebrating anniversaries and being reissued. It’s lovely that a new generation can enjoy the also enjoyed. You just can’t beat an adventure thriller. Suitable for 8-12’s.
ADVENTURE CLASSICS FOR BOYS, £9.99, Egmont, 9781405254656
Adventure Classics for Girls by Johanna Spyri, Susan Coolidge and Anna Sewell is suitably pink and features the three lovely stories ‘Heid’, ‘What Katy Did’ and ‘Black Beauty’. I love these stories and they remind me of long hot summer’s building a den in the fields by my house. A time of innocence and this book captures it all. Suitable for 8-12’s.
