General Dourakine by the Countess de Ségur

Translated by Stephanie Smee
2013, Simon & Schuster (Aust.)

This is the sequel to A Room at Guardian Angel Inn in which the cantankerous but lovable General Dourakine brings his new-found French friends, Jacques and Paul, back to his grand estate in snowy Russia. Life becomes complicated when the General’s niece, the grasping Madame Papofsky and her eight unruly children descend on the house.

Mikhail Strogoff by Jules Verne

Translated by Stephanie Smee
2016, Eagle Books

First published in French in 1876 as Michel Strogoff, this is the first new English language translation in a hundred years or so. It is a rip-roaring tale of advanture and suspense, painted with romance and humour and set in pre-revolutionary Russia.  French readers think it’s one of Verne’s best! Suitable for both adult and young readers from 11 and up, it is a book which has inspired countless film and TV adaptations all over the world.
