The Young Visiters: Or Mr. Salteena's Plan

by Daisy Ashford

From the Book Jacket: What a treat is in store for every reader who has not yet encountered The Young Visiters, and what added pleasure awaits those who have a fond, if dim, memory of this ageless classic of unintentional humor- a romantic novel written by a nine-year-old girl. As a child, Daisy Ashford possessed a keen ear for the conversations of her elders, and was an avid reader of the Victorian novels of her day. From these sources, and with her own considerable talent, she fashioned the fabulous love story of naively sophisticated Ethel, handsome, wealthy Bernard, and poor Mr. Salteena, the disappointed suitor. Her genuinely delightful combination of childish and adult viewpoints, the unconscious caricature and satire of romance, make this tale still one of the funniest books ever written. In its present edition, the flavor and humor of the book are accented by a specially styled binding and forty-eight line cuts by the noted artist, William Pene du Bois. This book was first published thirty-two years ago, when its author, then a full-grown woman, discovered the manuscript with other childhood mementos among the effects of her lately deceased mother. Upon publication, the book met with instant and howling success. Sir James Barrie wrote the preface for the first edition, and to the great surprise of the author, publisher, and Sir James himself, the public and critics alike chose to believe that the book was a hoax, written by Barrie. Daisy Ashford, however, is very authentic and very real. Today she is Mrs. James Devlin, living quietly on a farm near Norwich, England, a mother of four and grandmother of two. The original manuscript of The Young Visiters, childishly scrawled in a twopenny notebook, may be viewed in the London Exhibition of the Festival of Britain.

by Kendare Blake

In this must-read prequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, the queens’ origin story is revealed. It’s a pre-crown lowdown of Fennbirn’s ruling class.Mirabella, Arsinoe, and Katharine weren't always scheming to murder each other. They weren't always surrounded by rival foster families, each swearing to have their best interests at heart. And they weren't always afraid of being unexpectedly attacked—by one of their own sisters, no less—in a way that could cost them their last breath. They used to be together. Just three sisters. Alone in a glen.This is the story of the three queens—after they were born, before they were separated, during the time when they all lived together, loved each other, and protected each other. It’s also the story of the day they were torn apart, and the several years that follow. From birth to eleven years old, this is a rare glimpse of the queens' lives…before they were at stake.

Young People, Learning and Storytelling (Palgrave Studies in Alternative Education)

by Emma Parfitt

This book explores the lives of young people through the lens of storytelling. Using extensive qualitative and empirical data from young people’s conversations following storytelling performances in secondary schools in the UK, the author considers the benefits of stories and storytelling for learning and the subsequent emotional, behavioural and social connections to story and other genres of narrative. Storytelling has both global and transnational relevance in education, as it allows individuals to compare their experiences to others: young people learn through discussion that their opinions matter, that they are both similar to and different from their peers. This in turn can facilitate the development of critical thinking skills as well as encouraging social learning, co-operation and cohesion. Drawing upon folklore and literary studies as well as sociology, philosophy, youth studies and theatre, this volume explores how storytelling can shape the lives of young people through storytelling projects. This reflective and creative volume will appeal to students and scholars of storytelling, youth studies and folklore.
