Jane Austen's Pride and prejudice by Simon Langton ( Visual )
19 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 2,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elizabeth Bennet is a strong-willed yet sensible young woman, the second of five sisters. She has a long-suffering but loving clerical father, and a scatterbrained mother anxious to marry them off as soon as possible--to wealthy young gentlemen. At a local ball, she encounters one such, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, whom she finds arrogant, cold, and rude. Her older sister Jane falls in love with Darcy's best friend Mr. Bingley, while youngest sister Lydia flirts with anyone in a military uniform. Lizzie finds herself fighting off the attentions of the unctuous Mr. Collins and quite taken by the charming Mr. Wickham - who also happens to be an enemy of Mr. Darcy. However, as the characters succumb in many ways to pride and prejudice, Lizzie learns that not all is quite as it seems ... and that Mr. Darcy might not be so disagreeable after all

It's hardly poultry in motion when Rocky attempts to teach Ginger and her fine feathered friends to fly, but, with teamwork, determination, and a little bit of cluck, the fearless flock plots one last daring attempt in a spectacular bid for freedom
