Lewis Carroll's classic tale of nonsense and imagination, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was an immediate sensation upon its publication in 1865. It tells the tale of Alice, a young girl who tumbles down a rabbit hole into a world filled with talking rabbits, grinning cats, mad hatters and vengeful queens. Long hailed as one of the greatest children's books ever created, "Alice" has permeated the culture. The subject of dozens of adaptations, re-tellings, films and stage productions, "Alice" and the sequel Carroll penned soon thereafter - "Through the Lookingglass" - are two of the most treasured works of fiction in the English language. This version - produced in its unabridged form - also includes a brief biography of the author.
The O’Malleys have fostered dozens of cats in their bookshop over the past several years, but a new arrival named Regular is unlike any of their previous feline guests.This is Regular’s tale, but it is also Mack and Mavis O’Malley’s.

Welcome to Katalagein. I've been writing short stories now for 25 years, and they've been published for 24 of those. I also write books, but that's another tale entirely. I live with a cat, or rather, as he'd see it, he graciously permits me to live with him. As a result, and over the years, a number of my stories have featured cats, and some even featured cats that were real - although their adventures may have been exaggerated, but then again.... Cats think that humans exist to keep them warmed, fed, cuddled, and loved. Humans exist to open doors, cat-food tins, and cartons large enough for a cat to curl up in. They exist to rescue the cat, defend the cat, and protect the cat. Our opinion, that cats exist to keep us company and catch mice, doesn't begin to describe the relationship of the average cat with their human. Humans are stupid too, in the estimation of the same cat. No tail, no whiskers - no brains. Certainly our language abilities, compared to feline-speak are incredibly limited. We come in useful for some things but it can take so long to get the essential demand across, that I think that my current cat, Thunder, assumes I'm something of an idiot. However, I've always enjoyed writing cat stories, some have even won awards, and using my imagination I've been able to explore cats and their elements in a way that has opened doors to worlds previously unknown to me - and not always as expected either. So follow me into the many worlds of cats, but watch out, because where ever cats go, trouble follows! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Barnard.

A novel for everyone, Shelve Under C is a big, leaning stack of humor, heart, stray cat hairs, old book dust, mystery, family drama, longing, and hope. Used bookshops often have a cat or two roaming the aisles, sleeping on the shelves, or sleeping on the customers. Here is a novel all about one bookshop and its resident cats, Stomper and Buglit; and about Kris, a 12-year-old boy who apprentices in the shop. Kris is a little bit like the cats: he's a foster child getting used to a new family, and the cats are being fostered in the bookshop for the local shelter. Stomper and Buglit are a little bit like Kris: they get into trouble, have some wild adventures, and find out just what being part of a family really means. Unlike some novels that have a bookstore setting, Shelve Under C has the real spirit of the store, its owners, its apprentice, its customers and, especially, its cats as the beating heart of this fuzzy beast. It's full of wonderful characters, a wild storm, a doggy bucking bronco, catnip capers, an almost-deadly chicken salad sandwich, and... books! No need to knock - the door is open. So come on in, grab something to read, and get comfy on the big, red sofa. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Beth Bostic.
