Every one has been scanned, run through OCR software, proofed, formatted and assembled extremely carefully, using hundreds of volunteer hours. These books are public domain in Canada (because we follow the Canadian copyright laws), but if you are in another country, you should satisfy yourself that you are not breaking the copyright laws of your own country by downloading them. You are free to do whatever you like with these books, but we hope that mainly...you will enjoy reading them.

Featured Text PREVIOUS
Sir William Schwenck Gilbert was an English dramatist, librettist, poet and illustrator best known for 14 comic operas produced with collaborator-composer Sir Arthur Sullivan. Together they produced such notable comic operas as The Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S. Pinafore, and in 1885, The Mikado. The Mikado is a story that allowed Gilbert & Sullivan to satirize British politics and institutions using a thinly disguised Japanese setting. It has become one of the most successful productions performed and has been translated into numerous languages and adaptations.
One such adaptation is The Story of The Mikado, Gilbert’s last literary work. It is a retelling of The Mikado, with various changes to simplify the language and make it more suitable for children, and includes color and B&W illustrations by Alice Bolingbroke Woodward (1862-1951). Woodward, a children’s book and magazine illustrator, illustrated The Story of Peter Pan: Retold from the Fairy Play, also available here at Faded Page.
