Moneyball reveals a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of Major League teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win.... How can we not cheer for David? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.

This delightful Washington Irving tale, based upon legends and folklore of his day, follows the loveable but lazy Rip Van Winkle's escape from his constantly nagging wife into the peaceful hills of the Catskill mountains with his squirrel gun and his loyal dog, Wolf. There, he encounters a strangely attired gentleman who gets his help in carrying a huge vessel filled with liquor to a cavernous hideaway in the mountainside. Inside, a group of equally strange and morose men play ninepins as they quaff the liquor. After Van Winkle drinks to excess on the sly, he stumbles his way back to the woods and falls into a deep sleep beneath a tree. He awakens to find it is 20 years later - and the American Revolution has occured as he slept! 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Ian Davies.

In a deep, desolate forest, towering pines surround a circus tent. Pass through the tent doors and discover a mystical world. A thick mist hovers, the overture begins, and the stillness is interrupted by circus-performing bears. The bears are controlled by the ringmaster, Monsieur Buggbear, who obtained a magical baton with a secret power. Discard cute and cuddly, these creatures are from another realm. Shaggy, smart and sly...this production has no humans and that is the magic of Bear Circus of Twilight. Also included is a prequel, cleverly cited at the end. This five-stanza poem titled, "The Legend of the Baton: In the Beginning", explains how Monsieur Buggbear gained his power and created Bear Circus of Twilight. And lastly, a complete glossary is narrated to help define all the magical words. Enter this circus at your own risk and enjoy the show! 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Doersch.
