    Our collection of around 200 classic titles for adults still only cost £2.99, and we think the quality of our current editions is the best they have ever been. So whether you are a student or a school on a limited budget or a just a lover of great literature, then you're in the right place. So go ahead and treat yourself to a masterpiece for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

    And our Classics are only part of the story. Our World Literature series encompasses major works of philosophy, and more, from around the world, our Poetry series covers all of the major British, Irish and American writers and our Mystery & Supernatural series offers chilling ghost stories and intriguing mysteries. Add to that our new Exclusive Collection, our bumper Special Editions and our beautiful hardback Library Collection and Collector's Editions (which make great presents) and we can truly say that with our collection of well over 400 titles we offer something for everyone.

THE CHILDREN OF THE NEW FOREST by Captain Frederick Marryat

In this week's blog, David Stuart Davies looks at a classic children's adventure story. Read it here

About the book: Cavalier and Roundhead battle it out in the turbulent setting of the English Civil war and provide the background for this classic tale of four orphans as they face adversity, survival in the forest, reconciliation and eventual forgiveness.

This is the first enduring historical novel for children, which conjures up as much magic today as it did on first publication. The freedom from adult constraint allied with the necessary disciplines to survive in a hostile world make for a gripping read.

ISBN 9781853261107 R.R.P. £2.99
