Max & Moritz is in the public domain. It would be a wonderful addition to
the collection, if possible. Does anyone know whether it is available?

> Sugar on a Stick v2 Blueberry will be launched at the Netbook World
> Summit in Paris on December 8th and Walter will open the summit with
> the keynote presentation!
> Sebastian and other members of the SoaS team are working hard on
> finalizing the master this weekend.
> In this holiday season with $250 Kindles and $299 Nooks and $$$
> eBooks, we want to talk about Sugar's great eBook tools as well as
> open access eBooks - that eBooks shouldn't be only pricey DRM'd
> downloads for pricey gadgets.
> To do this, we want to "populate" Blueberry's Journal with a small
> number of eBooks. Small, so the Journal is not overstuffed; eBooks
> there will help new Sugar users to understand the Journal.
> We do feel though that it is important that of the handful of eBooks,
> not all should be in English. We won't have room for every language
> (that needs to wait for a later version of Sugar or SoaS which could
> have filter logic by language). But an eBook in half a dozen
> languages, with instructions for parents and teachers where to find
> others, will effectively demonstrate Sugar's potential as an eBook
> reader solution. Books written in the native language will be
> preferable to translations of books originally written in English -
> we'd like to show that Sugar content can be localized and not merely
> translated.
> Please suggest eBooks! ideally, an illustrated eBook in EPUB format
> (although we may be able to convert from other formats by hand since
> there will only be a few). Send links!
> If it's possible before Sunday, it would be fabulous if we could
> include an eBook created by children in the classroom! Even a
> collection of scans could be fairly easily "bound" into an eBook file.
> Thanks for your help!
