Heart of a Dog

by Mirra Ginsburg Mikhail Afanasevich Bulgakov

This hilarious, brilliantly inventive novel by the author of The Master and Margarita tells the story of a scroungy Moscow mongrel named Sharik. Thanks to the skills of a renowned Soviet scientist and the transplanted pituitary gland and testes of a petty criminal, Sharik is transformed into a lecherous, vulgar man who spouts Engels and inevitably finds his niche in the bureaucracy as the government official in charge of purging the city of cats.

Three Kittens

by V. Suteyev Mirra Ginsburg

The mischievous kittens fall into a can of flour, and guess what happens? Fun for grown-ups to read to the very young, and fun for young readers to read to older folks. A delightful and fast-paced story. This file should make an excellent embossed braille copy.
