Under the Window: Pictures & Rhymes for Children was Kate Greenaway's first children's picture book, composed of her own verses and illustrations. The toy book, helped launch Greenaway's career as a children's book illustrator and author in the late 19th century as well as starting what became known as the "Greenaway vogue." Although Greenaway illustrated over 150 books, Under the Window is one of only two books that she wrote and illustrated. The book is considered to be one of the first earliest examples of a designer picture book, and its popularity caused it to be imitated.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Nelly is a simple, ordinary girl-that is, until late one strange night, when she just happens to be lying awake in bed. On this night, while looking out her window, Nelly sees a shadow. She decides to go to her window to see what's casting the shadow and meets Ockleberry. He is a Wigglemot, a small troll who lives under a scraggly bush on the far edge of Nelly's garden. Though surprised to meet such a creature, Nelly accepts Ockleberry as her new friend, and they soon set off on their first adventure. On their adventure, Nelly and Ockleberry meet another garden creature. Pigglewit is a Nongbat who lives in the big tree just outside Nelly's yard. The three become friends and agree to meet again soon. But Nelly, Ockleberry, and Pigglewit are meeting in secret. When Pigglewit and Ockleberry realize that they can't keep sneaking off without their parent's permission, they decide to organize a meeting over tea. Garden creatures generally try to hide from big people. Will the new friends be allowed to continue playing with her, or will Ockleberry's and Pigglewit's parents think it's just not safe?

If the fates had been just a shade different, we might all be flying to-and-from Cullerton International instead of O'Hare International. This is the incredible story of Bill Cullerton, a leading United States Army Air Force ace in World War Two. Few could have survived the harrowing ordeal he experienced. Here is a tale of salmon fishing, war, survival and friendship. This is the true story of The Window at St. Catherine's. ***** The Waffen-SS officer takes Bill's gun, jams it against his right side just under his rib cage. "For you the war is over," the Waffen-SS officer says. He pulls the trigger. ***** "The window at St. Catherine's is really a grabber 'hanging on every word' is a cliché so I won't use it, but it is a good read-solidly and well told." -William A. Rooney, co-author The Enola Gay and the Smithsonian Institution
