The Story of Prince Fairyfoot
Prince Fairyfoot is born into a society, even though he is royal...where large feet are a sign of specialness...all his family...king, Queen and other children have large feet...so he is an embarassment and is sent away to live with the family of a sheepherder. After such a sad start, Prince Fairyfoot finds adventure and falls in love with a beautiful girl, Princess Goldenhair, will they find happiness?  

The Proud Little Grain of Wheat
There once was a little grain of wheat which was very proud indeed. The proud little grain of wheat grows through all stages of development from seed to wheat finally being ground into flour...always think that it was better than being what it was. Finally the ultimate triumph is to be used for a cake and this is truly a special place for the grain of wheat...the height of being somebody.... and the wife bakes the cake...and...

My Robin
Frances befriends a lonely little robin and shares the joyous experience with the readers. It is quite evident that Frances understood the value of life and the importance of caring for every creature we share our earth with.

Sara Crewe
Sara Crewe is the 1888 serialized story Frances Hodgson Burnett eventually turned into the popular novel "A Little Princess", which was published in 1915.
Much of the plot is the same, a little girl with a wealthy father is left at a boarding school in London, while he goes abroad. Sara is a charming and popular girl who's fortunes reverse when her father dies, apparently without money. Sarah is treated cruelly by the headmistress of the school, but her fortunes take another turn when a watchful neighbor takes an interest in her.

Format
Original electronic
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.
