Share Your Rainbow: 18 Artists Draw Their Hope for the Future Audiobook

Share Your Rainbow: 18 Artists Draw Their Hope for the Future

Author: Tba Narrator: Catherine Ho Release Date: August 2020

When the storm subsides and the sun comes out, don't forget to look for the rainbow! Inspired by kids across the country displaying rainbows in their windows, acclaimed illustrators come together to imagine everything these rainbows represent: caring for one another, and our hopes for the future. In this collection of eighteen scenes, readers will lick an ice cream cone, swim in the ocean, cuddle close with cousins, and celebrate a birthday with a party full of friends and family. Each spread has a hidden rainbow for kids to find! An introduction by R. J. Palacio, New York Times bestselling author of Wonder, reminds us that rainbows have always been symbols of hope, and that as fleeting as a rainbow may seem, we can always look for the next one--in the sky, on the sidewalk, and in a window. 100% of net proceeds from the sale of this book will go to World Central Kitchen, using the power of food to help our communities weather this storm.

Coraline Audiobook

Coraline

Author: Neil Gaiman Narrator: Neus Sendra Release Date: August 2020

Acompaña a Coraline y déjate transportar al mundo de fantasía y terror creado por el premiado autor Neil Gaiman. «Damas y caballeros, niñas y niños, pónganse en pie y aplaudan: Coraline es una obra maestra.» Philip Pullman, The Guardian Al día siguiente de mudarse de casa, Coraline explora las catorce puertas de su nuevo hogar. Trece se pueden abrir con normalidad, pero la decimocuarta está cerrada y tapiada. Cuando por fin consigue abrirla, Coraline se encuentra con un pasadizo secreto que la conduce a otra casa tan parecida a la suya que resulta escalofriante. Sin embargo, hay ciertas diferencias que llaman su atención: la comida es más rica, los juguetes son tan desconocidos como maravillosos y, sobre todo, hay otra madre y otro padre que quieren que Coraline se quede con ellos, se convierta en su hija y no se marche nunca. Pronto Coraline se da cuenta de que, tras los espejos, hay otros niños que han caído en la trampa. Son como almas perdidas, y ahora ella es su única esperanza de salvación. Pero para rescatarlos tendrá también que recuperar a sus verdaderos padres, y cumplir así el desafío que le permitirá volver a su vida anterior. Reseñas: «Este libro te producirá escalofríos y el miedo se te colará por los zapatos. Posee el delicado toque de terror de los mejores cuentos de hadas y es una obra maestra. Después de leerlo, no volverás a mirar un botón como antes.» Terry Pratchett «Delicado y extraordinario, se lee como un cruce de Alicia en el país de las maravillas y Stephen King.» Independent on Sunday «Una fantasía magnífica y siniestra; Gaiman muestra un gran conocimiento de los temores de los niños y de su capacidad para superarlos.» Kirkus Reviews «Un libro maravillosamente extraño y espeluznante [...]. Neil Gaiman es demasiado sutil para aludir a lo sobrenatural, es mucho más misterioso. Los peligros son reales y parte de la riqueza de esta historia se encuentra en el hecho de que ofrece muchos significados sin imponer ninguno [...].» Philip Pullman, The Guardian «Gaiman logra tejer una apasionante y adictiva narración, a caballo entre los mitos de los cuentos de hadas infantiles y el suspense propio de un filme de terror. [...] Tras su lectura no volveremos a mirar los botones de la misma manera y cada vez que tengamos que abrir una puerta nos lo pensaremos dos veces.» Sandra Pérez, ABC «Coraline es una digna heredera de las grandes heroínas de la literatura infantil, pero también lon es de las historias góticas de Poe, Lovecraft, etc. Gaiman sabe inventar ambientes y recrear la atmósfera necesaria para arañar e, incluso en ocasiones, hecer estremecerse al lector.» Pep Molist, Quadern, El País

Just So Stories for Little Children Audiobook

Just So Stories for Little Children

Author: Rudyard Kipling Narrator: Tim Bulkley Release Date: August 2020

The 'Just So Stories for Little Children' is among Kipling's best known and loved work. The stories focus on different animals, and how they got their distinctive features. You will for example discover why the elephant's trunk is so very long, and how the leopard got its spots. Written originally for his own daughter, the author's pleasure in playing with the sounds and meanings of words is very evident, and adds to the adults' enjoyment of these children stories. This playfulness is also dramatically present in the plotting. For both reasons, these stories have been loved by generations of children and adults alike, and they are best enjoyed when read aloud.
