Story Book Culture
by Joe and Cheryl Homme

Remember hiding under the covers and being swept away by a fantastical tale while clutching a flashlight? Sure, it began with Dick and Jane, but soon moved on to the more sophisticated Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys, and before you knew it, the journey was out of this world with Tom Swift Jr. and his science-adventure sagas. These illustrations and stories are not lost. They are here just as you remember them in Storybook Culture. Abundantly illustrated, this study in American culture tells the history of the stories, the authors, the illustrators, and the art that sold five generations on the power of the imagination. This sentimental voyage is sure to evoke fond memories of childhood and, if only for a moment, recapture the innocence of youth. Over 400 of America's favorite children and juvenile book covers and illustrations spanning from 1900 to 1970. Featuring artists such as Wyeth, Parrish, Vaughn, Doane, and Campbell. Learn the surprising history behind the best known and phenomenally successful of all the children's series books in the meticulously researched text.

Stuart Little
by E.B. White

Stuart Little is no ordinary mouse. Born to a family of humans, he lives in New York City with his parents, his older brother George, and Snowbell the cat. Though he's shy and thoughtful, he's also a true lover of adventure.

The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh
by A. A. Milne

Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. In 1926, Winnie-the-Pooh, a collection of stories about a rather stout, somewhat confused bear, was published in England and America. The enchanting tales of Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Christopher Robin, and the others were an immediate success, and firmly established A. A. Milne, already an acclaimed dramatist, as a major author of children's books. Winnie-the-Pooh was followed in 1928 by a second collection, The House At Pooh Corner, which continued the adventures from the Hundred Acre Wood and introduced bouncy, lovable Tigger.

These are the words in Charlotte's web, high in the barn. Her spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, as well as the feelings of a little girl named Fern ... who loves Wilbur, too. Their love has been shared by millions of readers.
