The situation is calm for a while and then fights break out. The grey cat orders all cats to take off their ears and give them to him. When the cats are given back their ears, the black cats are given the blond cats' ears, and visa versa. Suddenly each group hears voices they never heard before, the voices of the other group.
At the end of the story, a black kitten says to a white kitten, Did we really need to exchange ears to be able to hear each other? N","","Osborne Coll.

One day Dokdok wakes up in pain and he finds out that Dada the mouse is biting his feet in her attempt to steal his shoes. She succeeds in stealing the shoes and takes them home to sell so that she can buy shoes for herself. Dokdok calls on the cat for help. The cat cuts the mouse's tail off and in return for the tail the mouse must find many things for all the friends. He soon learns it was all a trick to give back Dokdok's shoes. The mouse finally gets its tail back but doesn't know how to put it back on so the friends send her to the spider to teach it to sew and knit so that she can be useful rather than have to steal from others.
This story is about the importance of knowledge and learning. Dokdok is alone in the field and makes sounds that echo. We learn that the moon comes out at night, followed by the sun in the morning which moves in the sky. They take a look at the city, the zoo, and the field. Dokdok hears a loud voice saying Vou Vou Va and the sound scares him. Each of his friends keep on guessing what this sound is and they are all frightened except for the Sun and the Moon.
The friends keep saying it is a ghost and are so frightened until a farmer explains it to them. It is the sound of the wind over the well. In this story, Dokdok and his friends are in the field, they see a mouse running away with a piece of cheese, so Dokdok remembers seeing a mouse running away from a cat, so they imitate the cats voice to make the mouse afraid.
Then they chase away the cat that stole the fisherman's fish by barking like a dog, and do the same with a number of different animals. In this story we are introduced to the scarecrow standing all alone in the middle of the field. He cries for someone to come and talk to him but the wind just keeps repeating his words.
When he says listen to my heart beating dok dok dok, he hears the wind repeat the same sound. This is how he got his name. The Sea Gull is the first to befriend Dokdok and finds that he is not scary at all. We are introduced to his friends one after the other.
This is the beginning of a series of stories about adventures that the friends encounter together.

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore - For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore - Nameless here for evermore. And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before; So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating, "'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door - Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; - This it is, and nothing more.
Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer, "Sir," said I, "or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore; But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping, And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door, That I scarce was sure I heard you"- here I opened wide the door; - Darkness there, and nothing more. Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared to dream before; But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token, And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore?
Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning, Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before. Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter, In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore; Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he; But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door - Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door - Perched, and sat, and nothing more.
Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling, By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore. Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly, Though its answer little meaning- little relevancy bore; For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being Ever yet was blest with seeing bird above his chamber door - Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door, With such name as "Nevermore. But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered- not a feather then he fluttered - Till I scarcely more than muttered, "other friends have flown before - On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before. Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken, "Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock and store, Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore - Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore Of 'Never - nevermore'. But the Raven still beguiling all my fancy into smiling, Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird, and bust and door; Then upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore - What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt and ominous bird of yore Meant in croaking "Nevermore.
This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core; This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamplight gloated o'er, But whose velvet violet lining with the lamplight gloating o'er, She shall press, ah, nevermore! Then methought the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer Swung by Seraphim whose footfalls tinkled on the tufted floor.
By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore - Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore - Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore. Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken! Leave my loneliness unbroken!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door! And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore!
On the leading edge of e-publishing, David Morrell releases his full-length thriller, The Naked Edge , along with nine of his previously published books, in electronic book format exclusively in the Kindle Store on Amazon. Bouchercon in San Francisco has been amazing. I am already looking forward to next year in St. Best Hardcover P. Mystery Scene Fall Benison" by Brian Skupin. Mystery Lovers Bookshop in Oakmont, Penn. Read more If Stieg Larsson had lived, who knows which direction his novels about punk hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist would take.
Certainly the late Swedish author left a magnificent legacy in his three novels, which have been re-created, as faithfully as possible, in three outstanding movies. It's not often that the movie version is equal to, or in some cases, better than the novels. But each of the movies has achieved this. Mainly because each of Larsson's novels could have used a good editor. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is pages; it would have been a stronger novel it had been pages. At 2 hours, 28 minutes, the film The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nes t is still a bit long, but the plot holds up so well that it moves briskly, even with English subtitles.
The chemistry is no less charged in The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest even thought the two share little screen time and Lisbeth is confined to her hospital room for a good portion. Lisbeth is being whisked via a helicopter to a hospital after being shot in the head by her father, Alexander Zalachenko Georgi Staykov , a former Soviet spy turned sex trafficker with powerful friends in the upper echelons of Swedish government. Lisbeth seriously wounded, but didn't kill, Zalachenko with an axe. As Blomkvist tries to find proof of a government conspiracy that sent Salander to a psychiatric hospital when she was 12 to cover up Zalachenko's existence, those in power try to have Lisbeth put away for good or, killed.
They also want to stop Blomkvist and his team of journalists. Too many movers and shakers would be harmed if proof ever leaked of their trafficking in girls. Blomkvist has to find the evidence as Lisbeth is put on trial for attempted murder. Meanwhile, the homicidal Niedermann Micke Spreitz , Salander's half-brother, is on a killing spree. Rapace continues her excellent performance. In the hospital cell, sans the usual swaddling of punk, black clothing, chains and spikes draped and impossibly high platform boots, Rapace shows Lisbeth's vulnerability and intelligence. But Rapace delivers Lisbeth's fierceness and her rage when she puts on that punk armor for the courtroom scenes.
Lisbeth is in high Dragon girl mode, ready to do battle against evil. Once again, she's a solider fighting against men who harm women and this is her uniform. Larsson had planned The Girl With as a series of 10 novels. Meanwhile, we'll have to settle for the three brilliant novels and the movies that capture their spirit. As for the novels, they continue to have a life of their own. On November 26, Knopf will publish a boxed set of Larsson's three hardover novels and a nonfiction book called On Stieg Larsson that is a new volumne of correspondence with the author and essays about his work.
In Swedish with English subtitles. Certainly the late Swedish author left a magnificent legacy in his three novels, which have been recreated, as faithfully as possible, in three outstanding movies.

Click NEXT at the bottom of the page for the next film. The character nuances, the plot twists, and the vivid setting show up on film. But the movie will let those who have never read the books know why it seems as if everyone you see is carrying a Larsson novel. For those of us who read and loved the novels, this second film complements the books. That same weapon is linked to a third death. The police convinced of her guilt because of her violent background that has been well documented by the courts. Blomkvist is equally convinced of her innocence. Lisbeth may be violent, antisocial and hard to read.
But, he knows that men who abuse women would be her target, not a journalist and criminologist working to expose sex traffickers. Although she dropped him from her life without reason and has refused all contact, Blomkvist remains loyal to Lisbeth. Separately, Blomkvist and Lizbeth work to prove her innocence and find the real killer. Millenium editor-in-chief Mikael Blomkvist played by Michael Nyqvist.
The film moves briskly without the sometimes bloated scenes of the novel. It is not necessary to have read the novel to follow the film. The friend who accompanied me had not read any of the novels — though she is now starting on the first—and was able to follow the story. Although there are a couple of variations from the novel—and NO spoilers here—the movie is faithful to the story.
The long opening that takes place in the Caribbean here is a scene of Lisbeth packing with the gorgeous Atlantic Ocean in the background. Instead of a long shopping trip, we just see Lisbeth putting together a chair from Ikea. And there was no way to work in her fascination with a mathematician. A few other plot points also missing from the film were wise choices by the filmmakers. Noomi Rapace plays series protagonist Lisbeth Salander. His quest for the truth is unwavering as are his compassion and kindness. His hurt and confusion after Lisbeth abandoned him is palpable, but it will not stop him from helping her.
Another female reviewer and I were talking after and we both agreed that for some reason Michael Nyqvist is much sexier in a rugged way in this movie than in the first.

I had hoped—and I admit this was a futile hope—that Hollywood might decide not to redo The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo movies based on Stieg Larsson's very fine novels. After all, the Swedish movies based on these novels have set a high standard already. I can't imagine any actress bringing as much depth and nuance to the role of goth, girl hacker Lisbeth Salander as Noomi Rapace.
This Swedish actress is just one reason why the movies based on Larsson's novels have been so good. The other reason is Michael Nyqvist, as journalist Mikael Blomkvist. Nyqvist has brought a thoughtful approach to this role. I think I could live with Daniel Craig in this role. Actually, I can live with Daniel Craig in just about any role. And director David Fincher also is an inspired choice. Fine actress, but no Noomi Rapace. The latest word indicates the producers are leaning toward an unknown actress, which would probably be the best choice of all. Mystery Scene looks back at our ongoing series commentary on all three of the popular Swedish films.
Mystery Scene asked authors of the season's best new holiday-themed reads to send presents down the chimney to their own creations in this first of a two-part special. Reginald "Turnip" Fitzhugh is off to visit little sister Sally at boarding school for the holidays. As is oft the case for the young nobleman of the series, he's mistaken for the English spy The Pink Carnation—this time by Sally's lovely school governess Arabella Dempsey. What ensues is a little bit of espionage, a little bit of comedy, a little bit of a romance, and even a little bit of Jane Austen who happens to be Arabella's best friend.
The Gift "Since Arabella and Turnip were more than a little distracted during the holidays, they're exchanging belated gifts this year," says Lauren Willig. The toast may be a bit burnt after that fire in the kitchen, Cook's nerves will never be the same , but there's plenty of raspberry jam. Turnip did draw the line at milking the cow himself, though, on the grounds that they're 'deuced tetchy beasts, cows. The theme? Mistletoe, of course! Happy holidays, all! May your gifts bring you as much joy as Arabella's and Turnip's bring them.
With the aid of wisecracking girl-elf reporter Rosebud Jubilee from The Marshmallow World Gazette and his best friend Dingleberry Fizz, a slow-witted but good-natured elf, Gumdrop uncovers an evil conspiracy that threatens to wipe out both Santa Claus and Christmas for good. The shade was multicolored stripes that just said 'festive' in a south-of-the-border kind of way. Fluke's favorite Minnesota baker, Hannah Swensen, starts off the fun in a story with holiday recipes and, of course, murder.
There wouldn't be a single murder victim for her to stumble over, no family crises for her to handle, and no distractions from the men she's been dating Second thought, never mind. She'd probably last about five minutes before she hopped a plane for home. It's a sad Christmas indeed for newly orphaned Benny, who has just witnessed the murders of both his parents. Grandmother Maude whisks him away to her own childhood escape in Molena Point, California, for the holidays, but the town is restless from a series of violent break-ins, and a killer has followed Maude and Benny to their retreat.
It falls to feline PI Joe Grey and his cat crew Dulcie and Kit, with some help from Misto, a wizened prison cat, to crack the case that will save an orphan and a stray. In lieu of the phone, maybe a nine-course Christmas dinner served formally by his favorite humans all gathered to grant his least wish. Oh, my. Maybe her most powerful longing, just now, is for a handsome tomcat. A strong, intelligent, personable tomcat to share her wildest adventures and her most impossible imaginings. Her longing might, or might not, be fulfilled in Cat Coming Home , but the spark is there, the hint of things to come.
Three magical gifts for three cats who trot just on the edge of magic—and with such amazements in mind, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas, feline and human, and a most joyous New Year.
