I just posted over 30 mint condition (well, all but 3 of them, they are in very good condition having been read once) classics from Townsend Press. They would be perfect for introducting any student/child to the classics. Townsend Press is an amazing business, they are the source of the Bluford series books, which is the BEST!!!!!!!!!! series ever for getting middle school students to read if they are reluctant readers, especially boys! I'm doing a 3 for 1 deal on all other kids books besides these classics and I've copied their blurb about their classics below so you can read about it without searching:
Townsend Library classics have been edited to make them more accessible to today’s readers. But the books have not been “abridged” in the sense of shortening them by sacrificing story development, character richness, and the author’s voice. In our experience, abridged books result from a simplistic removal of large chunks of material or a formulaic “translation” that robs a book of its distinctive flavor. By contrast, as we produce a Townsend Library title, we seek to edit the material carefully and respectfully in order to preserve the qualities that have made the book a classic.
• “What will get in the way of a reader’s enjoyment of this wonderful story?”
Please post bookshelf promotions and deals in the sticky thread (the red thread "stuck" to the top of the forum).
