1. CAPTAIN BOLDHEART and the LATIN GRAMMAR MASTER - From The Pen Of Lieutenant Colonel Robin Redforth, Aged Nine – but in reality written by Charles Dickens. Captain Boldheart (Robin Redforth), would appear to have devoted himself to the Pirate profession at a comparatively early age. Here we find him in command of a splendid schooner of one hundred guns, loaded to the muzzle, and he was yet to celebrate a party in honour of his tenth birthday!
2. THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH - John Peerybingle, a carrier, lives with his young wife Dot, their baby boy and their nanny Tilly Slowboy. A cricket chirps on the hearth and acts as a guardian angel to the family. One day a mysterious elderly stranger comes to visit and takes up lodging at Peerybingle's house for a few days. And then things begin to happen.......
3. THE LITTLE DOLL'S DRESSMAKER - Jenny Wren, The Doll’s Dressmaker, is a welcome contrast to stereotypes of disabled individuals as "permanent children" always in need of protection, "defined by their perceived dependence on the nondisabled". Far from slinking through life as an object of pity, Jenny proclaims herself "the person of the house" and creates a unique and constructive life with regards to her infirmities.
4. THE MAGIC FISHBONE - There was once a King, and he had a Queen; and he was the manliest of his sex, and she was the loveliest of hers. One day the King was going to the office, when he stopped at the fishmonger’s to buy a pound and a half of salmon not too near the tail, which the Queen had requested him to send home. But what of the old lady in the shop? The King hadn’t noticed her and she is VERY important to this story for she is the Good Fairy Grandmarina. But just how important you ask? Well, you’ll just have to download and read this story and find out for yourselves!
5. THE TRIAL OF WILLIAM TINCKLING - “The Trial of William Tinkling” Written by Himself at the Age of 8 Years. Young William Tinkling is the editor of a magazine. He and Nettie Ashford were married in the right-hand closet in the corner of the dancing-school where first we met, with a ring (a green one) purchased from Wilkingwater's toy-shop. His cousin, “Lieutenant-Colonel” Robin Redforth was united, with similar ceremonies, to Alice Rainbird. Later, they find out that Alice and Nettie are “being held captive” in the dungeon (basement) of Miss Grimmer's establishment. He and Bob make a vow to free the girls from their captivity......
6. MR. PICKWICKS CHRISTMAS - MR. PICKWICK'S CHRISTMAS is an account of the Pickwickians' Christmas at the manor farm in Dingley Dell near Rochester, Kent; and of the adventures they have there one Christmas. The first adventure is The Tale of the Goblin who stole a sexton; the second tells of The famous sports on ice, as written in the Pickwick Papers. a novel by Charles Dickens.
