    A coming-of-age tale for the young and naïve 17-year-old Catherine Morland, Northanger Abbey takes a decidedly comical look at themes of class, family, love and literature. Revelling in the sensationalist - and extremely popular - Gothic fiction of her day, the story follows Catherine out of Bath to the lofty manor of the Tilneys, where her overactive imagination gets to work constructing an absurd and melodramatic explanation for the death of Mrs Tilney, which threatens to jeopardise her newly forged friendships.

    Actress Emma Thompson narrates this story, which is based on an 18th-century French fairy tale. In this magically romantic book, a young prince befriends an enchanted cat-queen. She provides him with the rarities requested by his father, in a series of increasingly difficult challenges to win his kingdom. Their affection for each other blossoms into love, and the prince helps break the spell that an evil gnome has cast over the white cat. Musical accompaniment is by Joe Jackson.
