Excerpt:

“And how is the neighborhood?” asked Mrs. Turtle.

“Oh,” said Stork proudly, “It’s one of the best around. Great schools, beautiful trees, and the neighbors are just fabulous.”

“Well, I love it.” Mrs. Turtle said to Mr. Turtle. And right as Mr. Turtle was going to say, “We’ll take it.”

“SPLAT!” Right on the contract.

The very next day, the forest neighbors had a meeting.

“Something needs to be done,” barked Stork, “I can’t get anyone to buy a home in our neighborhood anymore. And so many have started to move out.”

“And it’s getting worse.” huffed Beaver, who was the forest’s trail cleaner.

“Grackle was such a nice bird when we first met him,” wondered Froggie.

“SPLAT!” Right in the middle of the table.

“Well,” chimed in Alligator, “does anyone have any suggestions as to how to deal with this problem?”

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
