One Moonlit Night Of Magical Creatures from the Author: Nieves Catahan Villamin. Who Swallowed the Moon? The bilao-sized moon shines brightly. It then slowly gets to be darker and darker that it seems to disappear in the night sky. After a few minutes, it becomes lighter and lighter until it goes back to being bright and full. This is the eclipse of the moon, or “laho,” as Filipinos call it. In the olden days, Filipinos came up with stories to explain the disappearance (laho) of the moon. Three mythical creatures, they say, would cause the lunar eclipse. One is the Bakunawa, a giant sea serpent with a mouth the size of a lake. The laho happens when the Bakunawa eats up the moon. People have to shout and shout to make the monster spit out the moon back into the sky. Another huge creature, this time a bird as large as an island, would fly from its home “outside the sky” to try and devour the moon. Minokawa—that is how it is called—would manage to swallow it. And so, people make a lot of noise to distract Minokawa so that the moon can jump out. The Arimoanga is a very big lion. Enamoured by the beauty of the moon, the Arimoanga would embrace the moon, bringing darkness on the face of the earth. Scared, the people would chant at the top of the lungs: “Arimoanga, Arimoanga, bitawan mo ang buwan.” Arimoanga, Arimoanga, let go of the moon. Distracted by this racket, Arimoanga would loosen its embrace, allowing the moon to run away. Of course, all three creatures would fail in their attempts to take in the moon. And so, up to this day, as the story goes, the Bakunawa, Minokawa, or Arimoanga continues to lurk the night sky and pursues the moon.

One Moonlit Night from the Author: Ronda Armitage. Tony and Sam are not sure they're going to enjoy their night camping in a tent. What will happen if they wake up in the middle of the night and need some help? Dad comes up with an ingenious idea - he ties a long piece of rope from the tent to his big toe, and tells the boys to tug on the rope if they need him. But instead of the boys using the rope, an owl rests on it; a cat sits on it; and the milkman moves it out of his way.... causing dad to have a very sleepless night!

One Last Child from the Author: Antonia Phillips Rabb. Have you ever wondered how it all came about, the skyscrapers, the boxes and cans and jars with labels of some special brand or someone's name? It came about, so often, out of the holds of big ships, where men and their families, or men and women alone, or here and there a courageous youngster, wide-eyed and frightened were discarded like refuse on the docks of this country. And how did they produce the boxes, build the hospitals, the colleges, the churches, make the cars, envision supermarkets and department stores, produce the technology that reaches out to others all over the world and even walk the moon? Here's how they did it and here's what sometimes becomes of those who followed.

One Hundred Years Of Solitude from the Author: Gabriel Garcia Marquez. One of the world's most famous novels, One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, blends the natural with the supernatural in one of the most magical reading experiences on earth. 'Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice' Gabriel Garcia Marquez's great masterpiece is the story of seven generations of the Buendia family and of Macondo, the town they have built. Though little more than a settlement surrounded by mountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters, even its wonders and its miracles. A microcosm of Columbian life, its secrets lie hidden, encoded in a book, and only Aureliano Buendia can fathom its mysteries and reveal its shrouded destiny. Blending political reality with magic realism, fantasy and comic invention, One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the most daringly original works of the twentieth century.

A Lover S Potion And Other Stories from the Author: Winsome Smith. Short stories are but a slice of life, yet they are complete, even in few words. Although the endings are not always happy, they are indeed endings. These slices of life take us to many times and places, where we meet people with a distinct set of problems--and sometimes, if they are very lucky, solutions. A Lover's Potion is an imaginative walk through fantasy and fiction. In these collected stories, we visit a small shire where witchcraft mania runs wild. A peasant girl becomes pregnant with her aristocratic lover, who presents her with a gift of jewellery, confounding a team of modern archaeologists. There is even a girl with incredibly long hair, locked in a tower, but she is not what she seems. Each story focuses on people and their fascination with one another. All human beings share desires, endeavors, and loyalties. Through actions, we reveal ourselves. The characters in these stories each long for something--and in some cases, the characters aren't human at all. Read of compassion, romance, and revenge in this riveting collection of wiles and whimsy.
