Tập1: “The Bogey Beast” by Flora Annie Steel

A woman finds a pot of treasure on 
the road while she is returning from work.
Delighted with her luck, she decides to keep it.
As she is taking it home, it keeps changing.
However, her enthusiasm refuses to fade away.



What Is Great About It: The old lady in this story is
one of the most cheerful characters
anyone can encounter in English fiction.
Her positive disposition (personality)
tries to make every negative transformation seem like a gift,
and she helps us look at luck as a matter of perspective rather than events.

Tập 2: “The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse” by Beatrix Potter

Timmie Willie is a country mouse who is accidentally transported to a city in a vegetable basket. 

When he wakes up, he finds himself in a party and makes a friend.
When he is unable to bear the city life,
he returns to his home but invites his friend to the village.
When his friend visits him, something similar happens.


What Is Great About It: 
Humans have been living without cities
or villages for most of history.
That means that both village and city life are recent inventions.
And just like every other invention,
we need to decide their costs and benefits.


The story is precisely about this debate.
It is divided into short paragraphs and has illustrations for each scene.
This is best for beginners who want to start reading immediately.

Tập 3: “The Night Train at Deoli” by Ruskin Bond.

Ruskin Bond used to spend his summer 
at his grandmother’s house in Dehradun.
While taking the train, he always had to pass through a small station called Deoli.
No one used to get down at the station and nothing happened there.

Until one day he sees a girl selling fruit and he is unable to forget her.


What Is Great About It: 
Ruskin Bond is a writer who can communicate
deep feelings in a simple way.
This story is about our attachment to strangers and
why we cherish them even though we do not meet them ever again.
