3. The Tale of Benjamin Bunny (1000 Copy Limited Edition) - Beatrix Potter

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £15.95  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Tale of Benjamin Bunny is a sequel to The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The story tells of Peter's return to Mr. McGregor's garden with his cousin Benjamin to retrieve the clothes he lost there during his previous adventure. Finding Peter’s clothes is easy, but their escape proves most difficult.

In The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, Beatrix Potter deepened the rabbit universe she created in The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and, in doing so, suggested the rabbit world was parallel to the human world but complete and sufficient unto itself. The Tale of Benjamin Bunny was written for a young audience, who are not quite ready to go out on their own.

This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.

4. The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies (1000 Copy Limited Edition) - Beatrix Potter

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £15.95  - Click book title for availability and further details

In The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, Benjamin Bunny and Flopsy are the parents of six young rabbits called simply the Flopsy Bunnies. The story concerns how the Flopsy Bunnies, while raiding a rubbish heap of rotting vegetables, fall asleep and are captured by Mr. McGregor who places them in a sack. While McGregor is distracted, the six are freed by Thomasina Tittlemouse, a woodmouse, and the sack filled with rotten vegetables by Benjamin and Flopsy.

After two full-length tales about rabbits, Potter had grown weary of the subject and was reluctant to write another. She realized however that children most enjoyed her rabbit stories and pictures, and so reached back to characters and plot elements from The Tale of Peter Rabbit and The Tale of Benjamin Bunny to create The Flopsy Bunnies.

5. The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin (1000 Copy Limited Edition) - Beatrix Potter

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £15.95  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin follows a group of squirrels who travel to Owl Island to collect nuts. An owl named Old Brown allows them to forage, but Nutkin taunts the owl with daily riddles. Eventually, Nutkin annoys Old Brown once too often, and makes a narrow escape.

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin reflects Beatrix Potter's interest in fairy tales, rhymes, and riddles, and sheds light on her embedded social and political themes. Some have likened Squirrel Nutkin's impertinent behaviour to that of the rebellious working-class of Potter's own day. Potter also breaks the traditional fairy tale mould by tacitly inviting her readers to solve the riddles — a task typically reserved for the fairy tale hero.

This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.

6. The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck (1000 Copy Limited Edition) - Beatrix Potter

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £15.95  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jemima is a domestic duck, whose eggs are routinely confiscated by the farmer's wife because she believes Jemima a poor sitter. Jemima searches for a place away from the farm where she can hatch her eggs without human interference, and naively confides her woes to a suave fox who invites her to nest in a shed at his home. Jemima accepts his invitation, little realising her danger.

Beatrix Potter indicated the tale was a revision of "Little Red Riding Hood" with Jemima, the fox, and the dog parallels to the fairy tale's heroine, wolf, and woodcutter. Both tales touch upon physical appetite, temptation, and foolish behaviour. The book was hugely popular, and is considered one of her best among critics.

This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.

7. Nurses Katie Goes to College (Large Print) - Bette Paul

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £9.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This is what the King James Version was meant to be, an exact word-for-word translation of the Hebrew and Greek texts. This title indicates that this new Bible is an exact literal, word-for-word translation of the Masoretic Hebrew Text and the Greek Received Text (Textus Receptus), the main texts used by the Authorised/King James Version translators. Certainly you will want to know all the truths that God has written in the original Hebrew and Greek languages, for it is truth that has the power to set you free: "And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (John 8:32) The difference between the KJ3 Bible and all other English versions ever created in the past is this: This version contains all of God's words, as He wrote them. Note that God has commanded this several times. See Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32, Proverbs 30:6, Revelation 22:18, 19. KJ3/LITV "You shall not add onto the Word I command you, neither shall you take away from it, to keep the commandments which I have commanded you." When a version adds words to the words that God breathed out or fails to translate what God has written, and hides from the reader what they have added or subtracted from God's word, they are deceiving the reader by in effect saying, "These are the words that God wrote," when the truth is that God did not write many of the words that they have put into their Bibles. This is especially grievous in the Bibles that use "Dynamic Equivalence" as their translation methodology. Basically, "Dynamic Equivalence" is storytelling or a short commentary of what God has breathed out to us. The alleged translator reads a passage of the Bible in its native language (Greek or Hebrew), perceives or interprets the meaning, and writes in his own words what the alleged translator believes the Bible is saying. There is no effort to translate each word of the Hebrew or Greek. This new KJ3 version is the version that lovers of God and His Word can safely use with the approval of God. You and every person will be judged by ALL of the words that God has written. Add to this, that God wrote in grammatical forms (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc.) Our Lord Jesus was always careful to keep the grammar of the Old Testament words He quoted in the New Testament. No other Bible version has ever strictly given the reader these grammatical forms as God has written them. The worst mistranslations: "Lord" for the divine name ("I am Jehovah, that is my name,"). God's name is mistranslated more than 6,000 times. Every nation had their lords, but only Israel had Jehovah as their God. All other countries were "the nations." In the New Testament "Gentiles" is falsely put for the "nations." "Church" is a word God never wrote: instead he called the meeting place "the assembly" both in the New and Old Testament. "The children of Israel" never existed as such, for the word, for "sons" is badly translated as "children." In many versions this occurs more than 500 times. Dead is either an adjective ("dead ones") or a verb ("to die"), (e.g. "he has died"). Also ("put to death") is from this verb, and most often translated as "cause to die". Usually, with most translations which have the same verb twice, one of the verbs will be replaced with an adverb. Only by going back to the each and every word of the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts can we ever attempt to have the purest translation. This is what we have tried to do with the KJ3 Bible - Literal Translation of the Bible.

9. Nurses Nikki, Barbara and Nick - Bette Paul

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £13.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Three very different experiences of nursing training. Barbara has always loved singing, but her accompanist wants more commitment from her, and to go for the big time. Nursing and singing don't mix, which means Barbara has a big decision to make. Nikki feels she has nothing in common with her community nursing patients, until she realises that some problems are the same wherever you are. Now she needs the courage to face her own problems... Nick is not looking forward to nursing a lot of little kids, but once he starts, soon finds he is having a good time. He soon starts thinking about his own childhood, and and things he hasn't thought about since he was a boy. Maybe this term could be more important than he expected...

10. The Sleeping Beauty and Other Tales - Charles Perrault

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £14.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The book includes five famous tales by Charles Perrault illustrated by Walter Crane (40 colour illustrations): Little Red Riding Hood; The Master Cat, or Puss in Boots; Blue Beard; The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods; and Cinderella, or The Little Glass Slipper. Walter Crane was a prominent book illustrator of the 19th century. In cooperation with Edmund Evans, he designed picture books printed in colour, which became the most popular children's books at the time thanks to their high level of craftsmanship and low price. Crane's style shows the influence of the art of the Renaissance and Japanese prints (ukiyo-e). He designed his books according to the belief that "children, like the ancient Egyptians, appear to see most things in profile and like definite statements in design. They prefer well-defined forms and bright, frank colour. They don't want to bother about three dimensions. They can accept symbolic representations. They themselves employ drawing ... as a kind of picture-writing and eagerly follow a pictured story." Crane's work set the standards of taste in the Victorian children's book industry and earned him a reputation as 'the father of the illustrated children's book'.
