              Kidnapped is a historical fiction adventure novel by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson. Written as a boys' novel and first published in the magazine Young Folks from May to July 1886, the novel has attracted the praise and admiration of writers as diverse as Henry James,... Jorge Luis Borges, and Seamus Heaney. A sequel, Catriona, was published in 1893. Robert Louis Stevenson (13 November 1850 - 3 December 1894) was a Scottish novelist and travel writer, most noted for Treasure Island, Kidnapped, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and A Child's Garden of Verses. Born and educated in Edinburgh, Stevenson suffered from serious bronchial trouble for much of his life, but continued to write prolifically and travel widely in defiance of his poor health. As a young man, he mixed in London literary circles, receiving encouragement from Andrew Lang, Edmund Gosse, Leslie Stephen and W. E. Henley, the last of whom may have provided the model for Long John Silver in Treasure Island. Stevenson spent several years in search of a location suited to his health, before finally settling in Samoa, where he died. Stevenson's literary reputation has fluctuated. The reaction against him set in soon after his death: he was considered a mannered and imitative essayist or only a writer of children's books. But eventually the pendulum began to swing the other way, and by the 1950s his reputation was established among the more discerning as a writer of originality and power whose essays at their best are cogent and perceptive renderings of aspects of the human condition; whose novels are either brilliant adventure stories with subtle moral overtones or original and impressive presentations of human action in terms of history and topography as well as psychology; whose short stories produce some new and effective permutations in the relation between romance and irony or manage to combine horror and suspense with moral diagnosis; whose poems, though not showing the highest poetic gen

              An educational ABC alphabet picture book for kids - to help children learn the English alphabet at the same time as letting them see the people, places, and culture of island countries. Part of a series of ABC books that focuses on countries. Having children of our own that are g...rowing up in a different country to where their parents and grandparents are from, we see the need for having some early cultural awareness and word recognition of other places that may be significant to their family. We hope this book promotes discussion at family reading time into what it means to live a in different country. The book has a page for the following islands / countries / continents: Antarctica, Bahrain, Cuba, Dominican Republic, East Timor, Fiji, Greenland, Haiti, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kiribati, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Papua New Guinea, North Sentinel Island, Ireland, Samoa, Tonga, United Kingdom (UK), Vanuatu, New Zealand. The following seas and oceans are mentioned: Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Irish Sea, Bay of Bengal.Each page has some engaging images and a small fact about the subject. It is packed with pictures of all sorts of animals and scenery.
