Timberdoodle's review
 
Black Beauty
Black Beauty, a handsome colt living in Victorian England, has a happy childhood growing up in the peaceful countryside. In his later years, he encounters cruelty, human suffering, and a tragic fire. Things go from bad to worse when Black Beauty's new owners begin renting him out for profit. Black Beauty endures a life of mistreatment and disrespect in a world that shows little regard for the happiness of animals.

The Hound of the Baskervilles
Late one night, Sir Charles Baskerville is attacked outside his home in Dartmoor, England. Residents say they've seen a monster in the area and heard its eerie howl in the moonlight. Could it be the Hound of the Baskervilles, a legendary creature that haunts the nearby moor? Sherlock Holmes, the world's greatest detective, is on the case.

King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
In a world of wizards, giants, and dragons, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table are the kingdom of Camelot's only defense against the threatening forces of evil. Fighting battles and saving those in need, the Knights of the Round Table can defeat every enemy but one - themselves!

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
A headless horseman haunts Sleepy Hollow! At least that's the legend in the tiny village of Tarrytown. But scary stories won't stop the town's new schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane, from crossing through the Hollow, especially when the beautiful Katrina lives on the other side. Will Ichabod win over his beloved or discover that the legend of Sleepy Hollow is actually true?

Robin Hood
Robin Hood and his Merrie Men are the heroes of Sherwood Forest. Taking from the rich and giving to the poor, Robin Hood and his loyal followers fight for the downtrodden and oppressed. As they outwit the cruel Sheriff of Nottingham, Robin Hood and his Merrie Men partake in a series of exciting adventures.

The Swiss Family Robinson
While on a voyage across the sea, a family from Switzerland is shipwrecked on a deserted island. To survive, the Robinsons must find food and water, as well as build a shelter. Soon, they discover that the island is filled with plants and animals they've never seen before. Unfortunately, not all of the creatures are friendly.

Treasure Island
Jim Hawkins had no idea what he was getting into when the pirate Billy Bones showed up at the doorstep of his mother's inn. When Billy dies suddenly, Jim is left to unlock his old sea chest, which reveals money, a journal, and a treasure map. Jim sets sail on a dangerous voyage to locate the loot on a faraway island. He is not alone. Bloodthirsty pirates are determined to make the treasure their own!

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
This is the early elementary version of this well-known tale. Beginning with the story of a deformed infant abandoned to the church, and a beautiful baby stolen from its loving mother, there is a lot here worthy of discussion. True beauty, love, disappointment, tragedy, justice, deception, anger, ignorance and a bit of the common culture of the times are all illuminated. A tragic tale, not for the faint of heart, but much easier to grasp in this well-done graphic version than in the original text.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Tom Sawyer is the cleverest of characters, constantly outwitting those around him. Then there is Huckleberry Finn, the envy of the town's schoolchildren because he has the rare gift of complete freedom, never attending school or answering to anyone but himself. After Tom and Huck witness a murder, they find themselves on a series of adventures that lead them to some seriously frightening situations.
Includes additional facts, glossary, background of Tom Sawyer, discussion questions, writing prompts and appropriate internet sites.

Awesome Books August 24, 2015
Reviewer: MeredithB  
All of my kids (ages 12, 11, 10 and 8) LOVE these books! I have two kids with dyslexia and the youngest does not enjoy reading. He loved these books! He was drawn to the fun pictures and all the colors. We plan to buy more!

A great set of books August 6, 2013
Reviewer: Molly D.  
Like another reviewer, I use these as read-alouds to my older kids, who are ages 9, 8, and 5. They all seem to have kept the spirit of the original books very well, despite obviously being rather abridged. The stories are all exciting enough to draw in reluctant readers, and the graphic novel format is great for my oldest son, who is Autistic and highly visual. There are typically four chapters in each book, and they are short enough to hold the attention span of a very active child. These are especially good for reluctant readers or very visual learners, who have trouble keeping characters straight in a story read out loud. My daughter enjoyed Black Beauty very much, and often asks me if I am going to order more of these, "but for girls". If Timberdoodle could find and sell a similar set of early elementary level books to appeal to girls, (Little Women? Anne of Green Gables ) we would buy them in a heartbeat.

Very eye catching January 14, 2013
Reviewer: Loving the Schooling  
These are very well illustrated slim volumes that are a wonderful way to introduce children to great literature. I was at first surprised at how quickly they moved through the stories but once I put aside my memories of reading the full length novels I enjoyed them. I used these as read alouds for my 9 and 6 year olds who are language delayed. They did find The Hounds of Baskersville and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow a little scary. On the other hand they absolutely loved King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. My 11 year old who is a strong reader couldn't resist them herself. While I probably should have waited a year or two to read a couple of these books to the boys I am glad to have them. They are a great addition to our library and will be read and reread in the years to come.
