As THE GOOSE FLIES – a Magical Children’s Adventure Story

?As the Goose Flies? written and illustrated by Katherine Pyle.Ellen stood at the nursery window looking out at the gray sky and the wet, blowing branches of the trees. It had been raining and blowing all day. The roof pipes poured out steady waterfalls; the lilacs bent over, heavy with the rain. Up in the sky a bird was trying to beat its way home against the wind.But Ellen was not thinking of any of these things. She was thinking of the story that her grandmother had forgotten again.Ellen's grandmother was very old; so old that she often called Ellen by the names of her own little children; children who had grown up or died years and years ago. She was so old she could remember things that had happened seventy years before, but then she forgot a great many things, even things that had occurred only a few minutes before.While she stood there it occurred to her that she should put the bookcase in order before she went down to the sewing-room. That was just the thing to do on a rainy day. So, she sat down before the shelves and began pulling the books out.The nursery walls were covered with a flowered paper, and when Ellen had almost emptied the shelves she noticed that the paper back of them was of a different color from that of the rest of the room. It had not faded. The blue color between the vines looked soft and cloudlike, too, and almost as though it would melt away at a touch.Ellen put her hand back to feel it. Instead of touching a hard, cold wall as she had expected, her hand went right through between the vines as though there were nothing there.Ellen rose to her knees and put both hands across the shelf. She found she could draw the vines aside just as though they were real. She even thought she caught a glimpse of skies and trees between them.In haste she sprang to her feet and pushed the bookcase to one side so that she could squeeze in behind it.She caught hold of the wall-paper vines and drew them aside, and then she stepped right through the wall and into the world beyond.And so begins Ellen?s adventure into a mysterious and magical ?World Beyond?. But, just what was in the world beyond?

Four and Twenty Fairy Tales, Selected From Those of Perrault, and Other Popular Writers – Illustrated by Godwin, Corbould, and Harvey

Four and Twenty Fairy Tales is a collection of stories, selected from the writings of Perrault, Leprince de Beaumont, Madame de Villeneuve among other important French fairy tale writers, and translated by J. R. Planch? (1796 ? 1880). The text is accompanied by the beautiful illustrations of James Godwin, Edward Corbould and William Harvey. Perrault (1628 ? 1703) was among the first writers to bring magical children?s stories into the literary mainstream, proving to their original seventeenth century readers that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. The stories of Four and Twenty Fairy Tales encompass favourites such as ?Blue Beard?, ?Sleeping Beauty?, ?Puss in Boots?, 'Beauty and the Beast' and ?Cinderella? as well as other, near-forgotten tales such as ?Fairer than a Fairy?, ?The Impossible Enchantment? and ?The Widow and her Two Daughters.? Planch? himself was a British dramatist and antiquary, chiefly responsible for introducing historically accurate costume into nineteenth century British theatre. His interest in folklore stemmed from such endeavours ? and his passion for the tales as well as mastery of the French language is apparent in this text. The book contains a selection of black-and-white illustrations by Edward Corbould, James Godwin, William Harvey and others, all engraved by the famous Dalziel Brothers which further serve to refine and enhance the tales. Pook Press celebrates the great ?Golden Age of Illustration? in children?s literature ? a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children?s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.

Giant Crab and Other Tales From Old India – Illustrated by W. Heath Robinson, The

This whimsical collection of tales is based on the Buddhist collection of J?taka tales. However, the author confesses to ?ruthlessly? altering them for the amusement of children and occasionally borrowing a ?phrase or a versicle?. He opens the book with a warning; ?To this work I refer all scholars, folklorists and scientific persons generally: warning them that if they plunge deeper into these page, they will be horribly shocked.? These wonderful tales are accompanied by many beautiful and intricate black and white illustrations by W. Heath Robinson. An English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of ridiculously complicated machines ? for achieving deceptively simple objectives. Such was (and is) his fame, that the term ?Heath Robinson? entered the English language during the First World War, as a description of any unnecessarily complex and implausible contrivance. Originally published in 1897, we are now republishing it here as part of our ?Pook Press? imprint, celebrating the golden age of illustration in children?s literature.

HIWA – a Tale of Ancient Hawaii

In the gray twilight of that morning, centuries ago, Eaeakai paddled his fishing-canoe down the Waipio River and up the coast, straight to the Saw-Teeth of the Gods. In the early morning there was good fishing opposite those stupendous cliffs, and Eaeakai had taken to himself a buxom wahine (wife), who could not live on love alone any more than if she were a haole bride, but had to have her fish and poi.The Waipio Valley lay among surroundings both lovely and grand. The valley itself, only a few feet above sea-level was as flat as a Western prairie, was, then as now, rich almost beyond exaggeration, and green with all edible products of the lowlands. It was thickly dotted with grass huts, for in those times the population was dense.He had scarcely reached his fishing-ground and baited his turtle-shell hook when he heard a rustling sound overhead. As he looked up he caught glimpses through the dense foliage of a woman rapidly making her way down the steep incline, regardless of the sharp thorns and terrible lava that cut and tore her hands and feet and body. Yet, in spite of her desperate haste, and at the peril of her life, she firmly clutched and carefully guarded from rock and thorn the mamo which royalty alone might wear and live.Eaeakai gazed for a moment, dumb and motionless with amazement. Then he flung himself upon his face, crying, ?E moe o! E moe o! Hiwa, Moi Wahine!? Hiwa gave command before she reached the bottom of the cliff??Fisherman, bring me the boat! Wiki wiki! Quick!?And so begins the adventure of Hiwa on ancient Hawaii???Haole - not a native Hawaiian, referring especially to a European person.Mamo ? a Honeycreeper bird - now extinct.=============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: Hiwa, Ancient Hawaii, tale, Action, Adventure, canoe, wiki, islands, Aa, Aelani, altar, ancient, battle, beautiful, blood, boat, chiefs, crater, death, Eaeakai, fisherman, God, gods, heart, high-priest, Hiwa, Kaanaana, kane, keike, King, kingdom, Kohala, Kukuihaele, Lord, love, love, lover, mamo, Manoa, moi, mortal, mountains, noble, palace, Papaakahi, passage, poi, Queen, rainbow, royal, sacred, sea, spear, spearmen, throne, Ukanipo, valley, wahine, Waipio, Wakea, warriors, water, woman, paddle, flee, fled, deceipt, deception,

PRINCESS WHITE FLAME – the Adventures of Prince Radiance and Princess Whileflame in the Fire Kingdom

This is a children?s story about a curse placed on Princess White Flame of the Fire Fairies and how it was lifted.In this story you will hear tell of Prince Radiance, and Princess White Flame, who lived in the Fire Country and of many strange and wonderful adventures on which they journeyed on to reach, at last, a never-ending happiness. OF all the fairy countries in the world none is more wonderful or beautiful than the country where the Fire Fairies live. Into that land no fairies of the earth, or air, or water dare venture. They would be seared, or changed to ash or vapor. There are many doors which open into the Fire Kingdom. They number in the thousands, and hundreds of thousands. Wherever you see the firelight flicker, wherever you see flames leaping and dancing, wherever you hear the snap of the burning logs, there you may be sure is an open door.Then if you choose to creep close to it, and peer in, you may perhaps see wonderful things; fairy forms that flit and vanish, and reappear, and vanish again among the leaping flames. Perhaps, also, you may see the shining domes and glittering turrets of the fairy palaces. But when the fire burns down, and the hearth grows dark the door is closed?there is no more to be seen of that wonderland. In the very heart of the Fire Country stands the palace of King Red Flame, the gleaming flame-coloured palace, the Palace of Burning Coals. Around it lies a wonderful garden, where paths wind away among great fields of fire lilies, and flame roses lift their heads, and the tall shining trees rustle in the wind with a sound like the whispering of the fire on the hearth. Here in this glowing country the good and happy fairies work and play, and serve their king as all good fairies should. But not all fairies in this land are good and happy. Beyond the glow of the roses and the lilies, beyond all sight of the glimmering trees, there lies another part of the country where the evil fairies live. Here are great Plains of Ash, and huge Caverns of Soot, and stretches of gloom in which the Shadow Witch comes and goes. Here lurk the Imps of Darkness, Dragons crouch, and Wizards dwell. Perhaps sometimes when you have looked into the Fireplace you have seen those dismal plains and darksome valleys. They lie away from the heart of the Fire, at the side of the Hearth, and between the flames and the heaps of ashes.

RAGO and GONI – the Tree-Dweller Children

Rago and Goni were brother and sister. They lived a long time ago in a country far, far away. They lived among the tall trees on the wooded hill near the river with their mother and baby sister.Rago and Goni always slept in trees. It was the only ?house? they knew. At night their mother selected ?beds? in the oak trees, because the strong branches were woven together with vines. These vines made good strong beds for the children and they would tie themselves to the branches with vines to keep from falling.One morning very early Rago awakened with a start. He sat up and listened. He had been fast asleep in the branches of the strong oak tree. He had been sleeping so soundly that he had to rub his eyes to make himself wake up. Then he looked down toward the foot of the tree.There stood two huge panthers. Rago was afraid, for he knew that the panthers could climb trees quickly and easily.?What shall I do, what shall I do?? he thought.He was almost afraid to move for fear the panthers would rush right up the tree. Just then he heard his mother call softly from a nearby tree. She too had seen the panthers. Goni was still fast asleep, she had not heard the fierce cry of the panthers.?Waken your sister, Rago,? called his mother, ?she is fast asleep.??All right, mother,? he answered softly.Rago sprang lightly from one branch to the other until he reached the oak tree in which Goni slept. He had to be very quiet so the panthers would not hear him. Not a sound did he make so lightly did he go, and soon he reached the tree in which Goni slept.?Wake up, Goni, wake up, Goni,? whispered Rago. ?The panthers are at the foot of these trees.?Goni sat up and began to cry. She was very frightened. ?Hush, hush, sister,? whispered Rago, ?the panthers will hear you. Come, we must go to another part of the forest.??Where is mother?? cried Goni.?She is coming with baby sister,? whispered Rago. ?Hurry, spring lightly, so the panthers will not hear you.? Very nimbly they sprang from branch to branch and soon they reached another part of the forest.Their mother followed them with baby sister upon her back.Soon they stopped to rest and listen??.What happened next you ask? Did the panthers hear Rago and Goni as they moved swiftly through the trees?

SEVEN ICELANDIC SHORT STORIES: 7 Contemporary and Ancient Icelandic Short Stories

Of the seven Icelandic short stories which appear here, the first was probably written early in the thirteenth century, while the rest all date from the early twentieth century.?Since the 12th C. the Icelandic people have continued to tell stories and to compose poems with the greyness of commonplace existence made more bearable when listening to tales of the heroic deeds and sagas of the past. In those past evenings, the living-room (baostofa), built of turf and stone, became a little more cheerful, and hunger was forgotten, while a member of the household read, or sang, about far-away knights and heroes, and the banquets they gave in splendid halls. In their imagination people thus tended to make their environment seem larger, and better, than life, as did Hrolfur with his fishing-boat in the story When I was on the Frigate.?So take some time out and travel back to a period before television and radio, a time when tales were passed on orally when families would gather around a crackling and spitting hearth and a family member would delight and captivate the gathering with stories passed on to them from their parents and grandparents and from time immemorial. The Norsemen who colonized Iceland in the last quarter of the ninth century brought with them the language then spoken throughout all of Scandinavia. This ancestor of the modern Scandinavian tongues has been preserved in Iceland with the oldest preserved Icelandic prose written almost 1000 years ago. Limited communications between Iceland and other countries, frequent migrations inside the island, and, not least important, a long and uninterrupted literary tradition has meant the Icelandic language has not developed any dialects in the ordinary sense.??33% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities, schools and special causes.

Stories of the Days of King Arthur (Illustrated)

Illustrated with engravings by Gustave Dore. According to the Preface: No other merit or importance is claimed for this book than that of a compilation; but it is, so far as the writer is aware, the most complete epitome of the Arthurian Legends that has yet been prepared for the use of young readers. More than one modernized version of the work of Sir Thomas Mallory has been published; but every student of the legends will be aware that there were many of which Mallory, in the compilation of his narrative, took no account; and the substance of several of these has been embodied in the present work. For the story of Merlin, recourse has been had to the version of the old romance given by Ellis in his Early English Metrical Romances. The quaint story of Sir Gawaine and the Green Knight is adapted from the edition of that legend which is included among the publications of the Early English Text Society; while to Lady Charlotte Guest's Mabinogion the writer is indebted for the story of Geraint and Enid, and also for the romance of Ewaine and the Lady of the Fountain. According to Wikipedia: Paul Gustave Dor? (January 6, 1832 - January 23, 1883) was a French artist, printmaker, illustrator and sculptor. Dor? worked primarily with wood engraving.

Tales of Troy and Greece

Best remembered for his collections of folk and fairy tales, Andrew Lang was also highly regarded as a Homeric scholar.

The BOJABI TREE – an African Children’s Folktale

In the jungles of deepest darkest Africa, the animals were hungry for there was nothing to eat. They fought for scraps and tit-bits until they came across a tree, the Bojabi tree (the mango-melon-pomegranate tree} which they smelled of apple-orange-plum-pear-banana. They wanted to rat the rich, red fruit but found they could not, because they did not know the fruit?s name.The animals took it in turns to leave and cross the dry and dusty African plains to ask the king of the jungle, the Lion, for the answer. But somehow on the return journey they keep forgetting what they have been told. Until, all that is left is the slow Tortoise. Will he manage to make the trip and remember the all-important name?This retelling of a traditional tale from Gabon is told using rhyme and repetition, giving it a rhythmic quality which begs to be read aloud. Edith Rickert?s text is perfectly matched by Gleb Botkin?s illustrations, bringing the African animals and scenery to life.===============KEYWORDS/TAGS: Bojabi tree, folklore, fairy tales, myths and legends, parents with children, mothers with children, parents to be, mothers to be, grandparents, advice, afraid, African, Beasts, animals, appleorangeplumpearbanana, A-rash-oo, A-rashum, asleep, A-tchoo, ker-lipp, Baby, bananapearplumorangeapple, Bear, beautiful, beg, BOJABI, Bruno, buzz, canoe, chatter, circus, clumsy, crawl, cream, Crocodile, delicious, eat, eighteen, Elephant, Elizabeth, forget, fruit, food, Giddy, Goat, great, happy, Hippo, Humpy, hunger, ker-lump, ker-lipp, Ker-splash, King, Leo, lion, Majesty, Mimi, Monkey, muffler, night, paddle, Pinky Pig, Puddle, Rat, remember, river, Robin, rowboat, sailboat, sail, school, shell, shriek, sing, SNIFF, Squeak, squeal, squeeze, skedaddle, stockings, SUNSET, Tabby, Tiger, Tommy Tortoise, trumpet, wail, whisper, yawn

The LITTLE GREEN GOBLIN – a Goblin Takes a Boy on the Adventure of a Lifetime

Little Bob Taylor was mad, discouraged, and thoroughly miserable. Things had gone wrong?as things have the habit of doing with mischievous, fun-loving boys of ten?and he was disgruntled and disgusted. One lesson was not disposed of before another intrusively presented itself, and tasks at home multiplied with such regularity they rivalled that of the evils of Pandora?s box.

The MOON PRINCESS – a Fairy Tale

One by one the sky?s matchless jewels, the stars, peeped out, studding that great ceiling with flashing diamond-points, until the whole dome was a glittering mass of blue and silver.Calm and majestic the Moon glided over her star-studded pathway; but, in spite of her glorious beauty and brilliancy, she was really sad and sick at heart. Ethelda, her best beloved, the youngest and dearest of her children, had just made a request the granting of which caused her that night bitterest sorrow. Ethelda had asked no less than this: to visit the Earth and spend her honeymoon there!Prince Dorion came with a great retinue of knights, all dressed in shining gold wrought in the Sun?s fiery furnace, and bringing wonderful jewels to his bride. The Moon Queen, not to be outdone in magnificence, showered silver in plenty upon them both, and bade one hundred of her loveliest maidens accompany the bridal pair upon their journey.And so they set off across the heavens on their way to Earth?.. But what adventures await the young couple? How will the little folk, the fairies, like this? Will the Prince and the Princess? brilliance overshadow Earth?s Fairy King and Queen, annoying them, or will they be welcomed with open arms?Well, the only way to find out is to download the book and read this wonderful tale of fairies, fairy Kings and Queens and fairy Princes and Princesses.10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities.============Abela Publishing ?

The RAINBOW CAT – the Magical Adventures of a Very Special Cat

The Rainbow Cat is not in the least like any cat you have ever seen. You see, it is a fairy cat, so it rather had to be different. It?s outward appearance is simply magical, if not somewhat unusual. You see it had a violet nose, indigo eyes, pale blue ears, green front legs, a yellow body, orange back legs and a red tail. In fact, it was coloured with all the colours of the rainbow, and so was known as the Rainbow Cat. Of course, it had to live in Fairyland (well where else would you find a Rainbow Cat?) and it had all sorts of really strange adventures. In this book I am going to tell you some of them, and I think you will agree that it really had a very exciting and breathtaking time.What were these adventures you ask?

The SAND-HILLS OF JUTLAND – 18 Tales and Stories by Hans Christian Andersen

In this volume you will find 18 children?s stories by the master story-teller - Hans Christian Andersen. This present volume is the second of the selected stories from Hans Christian Andersen. John Ruskin, after whom Ruskin College, Oxford is named, considered "The Sandhills of Jutland" to be ?the most perfect story? that he knew. The 18 tales in this volume are: The Sand-Hills Of Jutland The Mud-King's Daughter The Quickest Runners The Bell's Hollow Soup Made Of A Sausage-Stick The Neck Of A Bottle The Old Bachelor's Nightcap Something The Old Oak Tree's Last Dream The Wind Relates The Story Of Waldemar Daae and His Daughters The Girl Who Trod Upon Bread Ol?, The Watchman Of The Tower Anne Lisbeth; Or, The Apparition Of The Beach Children's Prattle A Row Of Pearls The Pen And The Inkstand The Child In The Grave Charming The power of Andersen?s tales to charm and elevate runs like a living thread through whatever he writes. His books have met the tests and held an undiminishing popularity among the best of children's books. They have set the standard, and their place in permanent literature will grow wider and more secure as time passes. Only a few children's authors will, and should, be ranked among the Immortals, and Hans Andersen is without a doubt one of them. That the genial author travelled widely for a man of his time, has enabled him to add charm to the stories in this volume. Almost everywhere he went he was urged to tell the tales himself. Even though he had become world famous, he did with equal measures of charm and grace in the kitchens of the humble and in the courts of nobles and palaces of kings. Wherever there are children to read, the stories of Hans Christian Andersen will be read and loved. =============== TAGS: Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales, folklore, myths, legends, children?s stories, bedtime, fables, read, school children, homes, love to read, story-teller, imagination, sweet, sad, sand hills of jutland, sand dunes, mud-king's daughter, quickest runners, bell's hollow, soup made of a sausage-stick, neck of a bottle, old bachelor's nightcap, something, old oak tree's last dream, wind relates the story of waldemar daae, daughters, girl who trod upon bread, ol?, watchman of the tower, anne lisbeth, apparition of the beach, children's prattle, row of pearls, pen and the inkstand, child in the grave, charming

The Story of Blue-Beard – Illustrated by Joseph E. Southall

The Story of Bluebeard is taken from the Perrault original, and illustrated with pictures and ornaments by Joseph Southall. Perrault (1628 ? 1703) was among the first writers to bring magical children?s stories into the literary mainstream, proving to his original seventeenth century readers that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. The tale of ?Bluebeard? has stood the test of time; enchanting readers with its other-worldly combination of horror and fairy-tale-endings. The text is accompanied and surrounded by the wonderful black-and-white illustrations of Joseph Southall (1861 ? 1944) who was heavily associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement; one of the last outposts of romanticism in the visual arts. Southall?s masterful creations serve to further refine and enhance Perrault?s magical storytelling ? making this a book to be enjoyed and appreciated, by both young and old alike. Pook Press celebrates the great ?Golden Age of Illustration? in children?s literature ? a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children?s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.

The STORY OF DOCTOR DOLITTLE: Book 1 in the Dr. Dolittle Series

This is the first in Hugh Lofting?s famous Doctor Dolittle book series. Written and illustrated by Lofting it contains 30 pen and ink illustrations plus 21 illuminated drop-capitals ? one for the start of every chapter. SYNOPSIS: John Dolittle, MD, is a respected physician, a quiet bachelor living with his spinster sister in the small English village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh. His love of animals grows over the years and his household menagerie eventually scares off his human clientele, leading to a loss of income and wealth. But after learning the secret of speaking to all animals from his parrot Polynesia, he takes up veterinary practice. His fortunes rise and fall again after a crocodile takes up residence, leading to his sister leaving in disgust with the intention of getting married, but his fame in the animal kingdom spreads throughout the world. He is conscripted into voyaging to Africa to cure a monkey epidemic just as he faces bankruptcy. He has to borrow supplies and a ship, and sails with a crew of his favourite animals, but is shipwrecked upon arriving to Africa. On the way to the monkey kingdom, his band is arrested by the king of Jolliginki, a victim of European exploitation who wants no white men travelling in his country. The band barely escapes by ruse, but makes it to the monkey kingdom where things are indeed dire as a result of the raging epidemic. He vaccinates the well monkeys and nurses the sick back to health. In appreciation, the monkeys find a pushmi-pullyu, a shy two-headed gazelle-unicorn cross, whose rarity may bring Dr. Dolittle money back home. On the return trip, they again are captured in Jolliginki. This time they escape with the help of Prince Bumpo, who gives them a ship in exchange for Dolittle's bleaching Bumpo's face white, as his greatest desire being to act as a European fairy-tale prince. Dolittle's crew then have a couple of run-ins with pirates, leading to Dolittle's winning a pirate ship loaded with treasures and rescuing a boy whose uncle was abandoned on a rock island. After reuniting the two, Dolittle finally makes it home and tours with the pushmi-pullyu in a circus until he makes enough money to retire to his beloved home in Puddleby.

Generations of children have thrilled to Howard Pyle's skillful retelling of the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.

Finally, there are the last chapters in the life of King Arthur ? his attack on Sir Lancelot, his fatal battle with Sir Mordred and Arthur's final journey to Avalon.Recounted in language appropriately medieval in flavor and enhanced with 39 of Howard Pyle's richly atmospheric illustrations, these tales promise a splendid reading experience ? a magical journey to a far-off time and a bygone world of knightly valor and chivalric romance.

The SUNBONNET BABIES IN ITALY – Sisters Molly and May Explore Italy With Their Parents

May and Molly are the Sunbonnet babies. In 1922, their father and mother have taken them on a holiday to Italy on board a passenger liner (transatlantic passenger air travel only began six years later on 11 October 1928 by the Graf Zepplin.) The story of their visit is told from a child?s perspective. Their first port of call is Naples where their first sight is Mt Vesuvius. On their way to visit the buried city of Pompeii they first call in at a museum to learn more about Pompeii and the famous explosion of 24 August 79AD. Their hotel room overlooks the port of Naples, one if the busiest ports on the Mediterranean Sea. Looking out over the harbour and all it?s ships, the girls wonder if any are pirate ships? Later they visit ?the Humpbacked Island,? really the Isle of Capri, where they explore the island and a sea cave. Their next port of call is the City of Rome and all its sights where they learn the story of the city?s founding twins, Romulus and Remus and how Rome came to be. Then they then travel North where they learn about rural Italian life before visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa. They travel on to Venice, which they call ?The City in the Sea.? Their father takes them around the city sights and they have a strawberry ice-cream on the Piazza of St. Mark and visit the Ponte Vecchio where they do some shopping. They are fortunate enough to be invited to visit a Gondolier's Home. They pay a flying visit to the tall bell tower called the "Lily in Stone," and a cathedral in Florence before returning home. So, we invite you to curl up with this unique sliver of children?s literature not seen in print for many a year; and immerse yourself, and your children, in tales written for a far more gentler time. 10% of the net sale will be donated to charities by the publisher.---------------------------- KEYWORDS/TAGS: fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children?s stories, children?s stories, bygone era, fairydom, fairy land, classic stories, children?s bedtime stories, happy place, happiness, Sun-Man's Babies, Arrival, steamer, passenger liner, Naples, Drive, Strange Sights, Visit, Museum, Afternoon in the Park, Buried City, Pompeii, Pirates, Humpbacked Island, Capri, City, Rome, Twins, Romulus, Remus, Travel Adventures, City in the Sea, Venice, Gondolier, Home, House, May, Molly, Sunbonnet babies, Italy
