The Child Story Books of Virginia Woolf is collected in twelve volumes that include The Forest of Fear, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Bells of Valor, A Midsummer's Night Dream, A Fire with No Name, A Matter of Life and A Pirate's Adventure. I have always enjoyed the Child story books by Virginia Woolf, but this collection is a landmark release for her work. I have always loved the tales told by Woolf, and this collection has something for everyone, including the young. It's a great start to an impressive series of novels.
The stories in this volume are: "The Bells of Valor," "A Matter of Life and Death," "The Forest of Fear," "The Adventure of Mount Tantalus," "A Pirate's Adventure," "The Bells of Pain," "The Adventure of Peter Pan," and "The Courtship of Mr. Whig." I particularly enjoyed the adventure of Peter Pan in "The Bells of Pain." It was written as an extended fairy tale with fully developed characters. That's one of the charms of Woolf's writing.
I enjoyed "The Courtship of Mr. Whig." I felt that it was a love story between a girl and a boy, rather than a romantic story between a boy and a girl. It just had a slightly different take on the fairy tale theme, but still maintained its universal appeal. That's one of the things that makes these stories so memorable.
In volume 7 of her illustrious trilogy, Ms. Woolf delivers "The House of Memory," another must-read tale of memory and the past. This time, the title character is Mrs. Whig. I enjoyed this latest installment in Woolf's "university press" series. In finding the best books for your kids, view here.
I especially liked this introduction, which dwelt at length on the idea of reification. The novel starts in the apple orchards and goes on to describe the history of apple orchards and how the rich and powerful families in "the know" use their money to support a tradition of apple orchid cultivation. It reveals the symbolism that underlies the wealth and power shared between families. Professors Walraven and Knaack are mentioned, and there is an interesting discussion of free will and the role that free will plays in morality.

I found the arguments presented here to be quite thorough and required several reading to absorb them. That being said, however, I enjoyed this particular installment in the University of Chicago's classic trilogy on reification and the related themes of temporality and causation. Professor Walraven provides his take on a complicated matter, and the author displays her outstanding writing skills in this engaging book. Reading this to the end makes this volume well worth the read. If you want to know more about this topic, then click here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Literature.
