6: The silver chair / C. S. Lewis

Abstract: Eustace Scrubb, having reformed his character following the events of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, encounters his classmate and new friend Jill Pole at their miserable school Experiment House; she has been tormented by bullies and is hiding from them. Eustace, who was once a bully himself but is now fearing that he will soon be targeted by the gang he was once part of, confides in Jill about his Narnian adventures, and that his experiences there have led to the changes in his behaviour. Jill initially thinks that Eustace is lying, but when he promises and asks her to attempt to go to Narnia with him, she agrees. Eustace suggests asking for Aslan's help, and as the bullies converge on them, the two blunder through a gate that leads them to Aslan's Country. There, they encounter a cliff, where Jill shows off by approaching a cliff's edge, and Eustace, trying to pull her back, falls over the edge. Aslan appears and saves Eustace by blowing him to Narnia. He charges Jill with helping Eustace find Prince Rilian of Narnia (the son of King Caspian X), who disappeared some years before, and he gives Jill four Signs to guide her and Eustace on their quest. Aslan then blows Jill into Narnia, where Eustace is already waiting, near to a great castle he has never seen before...

Book 1: A game of thrones / George R. R. Martin

Abstract: Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. To the south, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself...

Swift, Jonathan - Francis, Pauline

Gulliver's travels / Jonathan Swift ; retold by Pauline Francis

Harlow, England : Pearson Education, 2008

Abstract: Il romanzo I viaggi di Gulliver venne pubblicato da Jonathan Swift nel 1726, con lo pseudonimo di Lemuel Gulliver. Vi si narrano le vicende e i viaggi del dottor Gulliver, che a causa di diversi naufragi approda in terre inesplorate e incontra popolazioni sconosciute. In realtà, parodiando i racconti di viaggio tanto in voga in quel periodo, Swift compie una feroce critica alla società del tempo e dietro alla trama fantasiosa traspare la sua ironica condanna al sistema politico, ecclesiastico e giudiziario. Il volume è diviso in quattro parti. La prima è la più nota e racconta le avventure di Gulliver sull'isola di Lilliput, abitata da uomini minuscoli, in lotta con gli abitanti della vicina isola di Blefuscu per stabilire il modo più corretto di rompere le uova (allegoria sia della controversia tra Inghilterra e Francia sia delle dispute tra anglicani e cattolici). Nella seconda parte Gulliver viene abbandonato dai compagni di viaggio nel paese di Brobdingnag, dove abitano uomini alti circa 22 metri, mentre la terza parte lo vede viaggiare in terre in cui vivono scienziati inconcludenti, maghi e popoli immortali. Nella quarta parte incontra gli Houyhnhnms, saggi cavalli parlanti cha hanno sottomesso gli Yahoos, creature abbrutite identiche agli umani, per i quali Gulliver prova una profonda repulsione. Rientrato a casa, non riesce più a sopportare l'odore degli uomini e va a vivere per sempre nella stalla dei cavalli.
