Jack Flower at The Corner wants you to buy these books from NR for $30 each:
Our newest book, The National Review Treasury of Classic Children's Literature, Volume Two, is a big, beautiful, and lavishly illustrated hardcover containing 37 fantastic stories by Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, Rudyard Kipling, Frances Hodgson Burnett, L. Frank Baum, Thornton Burgess, and other giants from the Golden Age of children's literature. These are wholesome, wonderfully written stories that will enchant the lucky child who wakes up Christmas morning to find this delightful book under the tree. And for younger "beginning" readers (1st, 2nd and 3rd graders) we have another excellent gift idea: The National Review Treasury of Classic Bedtime Stories, a beautiful hardcover featuring 10 wholesome Thornton Burgess stories (and some 60 charming Harrison Cady drawings). It's also ideal for mom, dad, and the grandfolks reading to the little ones when they're being tucked in for the night (they're not called "bedtime" stories for nothin'!). Order your copies (securely!) here. We ship them for FREE, and by UPS Ground if you want (for a small extra charge). We'll even send them as gifts (with a handsome announcement card) at no extra cost.
Well, sure the shipping and the card are free. You can afford to do that when you republish public domain works, which every one of them listed here is.
