Sidhe cannot make themselves visible to all. They are shape-changers; they can grow small or grow large, they can take what shape ...they choose; they appear as men or women wearing clothes of many colours, of today or of some old forgotten fashion, or they are seen as bird or beast, or as a barrel or a flock of wool. They go by us in a cloud of dust; they are as many as the blades of grass. They are everywhere; their home is in the forths, the lisses, the ancient round grass-grown mounds. There are thorn-bushes they gather near and protect; if they have a mind for a house like our own they will build it up in a moment. They will remake a stone castle, battered by Cromwell smen, if it takes their fancy, filling it with noise and lights. Their own; country is Tir-nan-O gthe Country of the Young. It is under the ground or under the sea, or it may not be far from any of us. As to their food, they will use common things left for them on the hearth or outside the threshold, cold potatoes it may be, or a cup of water or of milk.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.

The Resurrection of Little Wang Tai A TRAIN of circus-wagons, strung along a dusty road, in theS anta Clara Valley, crept slowly u...nder the beating heat of a July sun. The dust rolled in clouds over the gaudy wagons of the menagerie. The outer doors of the cages had been opened to give access of air to the panting animals, but with the air came the dust, and the dust annoyed Romulus greatly. Never before had he longed for freedom so intensely. Ever since he could remember he had been in a cage like this; it had been so all through his childhood and youth. There was no trace in his memory of days when he of a time had been free. Not the faintest recollection existed of the time when he might have swung in the branches of equatorial forests. To him life was a desolation and a despair, and the poignancy of it all was sharpened by the clouds of dust which rolled through the grated door.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English journalist, poet and novelist. He was born in India, where he spent the first six years... of his childhood. The stories of his popular "Jungle Books" were written when Kipling lived in the United States. In 1907 Rudyard Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature – as the youngest recipient to date. Also he was the first English-language writer to receive the prize. ------ Kipling published his famous "Jungle Book" in 1894. It tells the well-known stories of Mowgli, a boy growing up in the jungle with animals and the laws of nature as his teachers. Furthermore the book contains stories of animal protagonists (for example the mongoose and snake-hunter Rikki-Tikki-Tavi), told as fables which use animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. It is also possible to interpret Kipling´s main work as allegories of the politics and society of the time. The "Jungle Book" is still one of the most popular works in English literature. "The Second Jungle Book" was published in 1895, and contains more stories of Mowgli and also of other animal protagonists. read more
