Honoured to review for Alma Books I'm delighted to be able to share this email about their recently launched Junior Collection.

Dear Reader, 

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our children's list, Alma Junior, featuring a range of children's classics, young adult thrillers and contemporary children's fiction. Perfect for instilling a love of books in young readers, our list includes several iconic children's classics, such as The Little Prince and The Complete Peter Pan, as well as contemporary titles like the steampunk fantasy  Alistair Grim's Odditorium (soon on its way to Pen and Paper courtesy of Alma Books) or the French Revolution-set Madame Tussaud's Apprentice (Read my review here).

Particular highlights include Saki's wickedly funny Gabriel-Ernest and Other Tales, with new illustrations by the great Quentin Blake, and The Selfish Giant and Other Stories, a tenderly witty collection of Oscar Wilde's children's tales, whilst our young adult publications will include gothic masterpieces like Dracula and The Hound of the Baskervilles.

A great selection of wonderful titles I'm sure you'll agree. To find out more click here for the Alma Junior Spring 2016 Catalogue.

Prefer classics for 'grown-ups'?

Never fear. Alma are thrilled to be able to offer a range of classics this month - many of them with up to 20% off the retail price at the time of posting this.

Ranging from A Calendar of WisdomLeo Tolstoy's curated selection of the world's greatest wit and wisdom, to Tales of Adventure and Medical Life, a collection which shows there is far more to Arthur Conan Doyle than just Sherlock.

They also publishing stories by the master of horror H.P. Lovecraft, The Whisperer in Darkness and Other Tales, and a unique collection of Victorian supernatural fantasy entitled The Haunted House, written by Charles Dickens in collaboration with other luminaries of his time. A further highlight is Ivan Goncharov's The Same Old Story, a new translation which follows the success of Goncharov's masterpiece Oblomov, also translated by Stephen Pearl and published last year. 

And ...

Two new installments in their Evergreens series, a selection of classic texts in beautiful editions at highly affordable prices. The two new titles are both iconic pieces of English literature, which no book lover should be without; Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles and Ford Madox Ford's The Good Soldier.

Available to UK residents. In the case of their Classic Collection simply click on the book title to find out more/order the book(s). For their Junior Collection please refer to the catalogue as linked too.

By the way no financial compensation was asked for nor given in the writing of this post. I simply think Alma Books a great publisher with some great titles and prices.

Sounds like a nice collection of books - thanks for sharing! I'd be curious to see the Oscar Wilde stories. Too bad I'm not in the UK. haha
