HUCKLEBERRY FINN: Who wants to live in a house, wear clean clothes, be good, and go to school every day? Not young Huckleberry Finn, that’s for sure. So Huck runs away, and is soon floating down the great Mississippi River on a raft. With him is Jim, a black slave who is also running away. But life is not always easy for the two friends. And there’s 300 dollars waiting for anyone who catches poor Jim.
ONE WAY TICKET – SHORT STORIES: Tom Walsh had a lot to learn about life. He liked travelling, and he was in no hurry. He liked meeting people, anyone and everyone. He liked the two American girls on the train. They were nice and very friendly. They knew a lot of places. Tom thought they were fun. Tom certainly had a lot to learn about life. This is a collection of short stories about adventures on trains. Strange, wonderful, and frightening things can happen on trains – and all of them happen here.
THE ELEPHANT MAN: He is not beautiful. His mother does not want him, children run away from him. People laugh at him, and call him ‘The Elephant Man’. Then someone speaks to him – and listens to him! At the age of 27, Joseph Merrick finds a friend for the first time in his life. This is a true and tragic story. It is also a famous film.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA: It is 1880, in the Opera House in Paris. Everybody is talking about the Phantom of the Opera, the ghost that lives somewhere under the Opera House. The Phantom is a man in black clothes. He is a body without a head, he is a head without a body. He has a yellow face, he has no nose, he has black holes for eyes. Everybody is afraid of the Phantom – the singers, the dancers, the directors, the stage workers… But who has actually seen him?
THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY: “When we are happy, we are always good,” says Lord Henry, “but when we are good, we are not always happy.”
Lord Henry’s lazy, clever words lead the young Dorian Gray into a world where it is better to be beautiful than to be good; a world where everything can be forgiven – even murder – if it can make people laugh at a dinner party.
WHO, SIR? ME, SIR?: Sam Sylverster is a teacher who wants his class to have ambition, and to do great things in life. So he enters them for a sporting competition against the rich students of Greycoats School.
The team that he has chosen for the competition think Sam has gone crazy. “Who, Sir? Me, Sir?” says little Hoomey, his eyes round with horror. “We’ll never beat Greycoats,” the others cry. But you never know what you can do – until you try.
CHEMICAL SECRET: The job was too good. There had to be a problem – and there was. John Duncan was an honest man, but he needed money. He has children to look after. He was ready to do anything, and his bosses knew it.
They gave him the job because he couldn’t say no; he couldn’t afford to be honest. And the job was like a poison inside him. It chanced him and changed him, so that he couldn’t see the real poison – until it was too late.
