Half a creature from the sea by David Almond( Recording )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An anthology of dark, powerful and moving short stories from master storyteller David Almond, inspired by his childhood in the north-east of England. It features coming of age stories on the theme of closeness to home, deftly interwoven with illuminating autobiographical pieces on the inspirations behind the fiction. Stories include: "The Missing Link", "Joe Quinn's Poltergeist", "Harry Miller's Run", "Slog's Dad", "Klaus Vogel and the Bad Lads", "Mary Malone", "Half a Creature from the Sea", and, "When God Came to Kathleen's Garden". David Almond says of this unique collection, "Stories on the page are so beautifully neat. All that lovely black print; those lovely straight lines and paragraphs and pages. But stories are living things, creatures that move and grow in the imaginations of writer and reader. They must be solid and touchable, like the land, and must have fluid half-known depths, like the sea. These stories take place in a real world - but in fiction, real worlds merge with dreamed worlds. Real people walk with ghosts and figments. Earthly truth goes hand-in-hand with watery lies."

The twin giants by Dick King-Smith( Recording )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When twin giants set out in search of happiness, the result is a comedy of errors that is doubly clever and enormously funny. And as Normus (a vegetarian) and Lottavim (a carnivore) grow and grow, the two are hugely happy, playing Roll the Boulder, singing badly, and doing everything together: waking up, going to sleep, even sneezing. So when they reach the age of twenty and the height of twelve feet, it's not surprising that they each think the same thought at exactly the same time: "It's about time I found a wife!" But is it possible to find not one but two of the giantesses of your dreams?
