An audiobook collection of 20 works by Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953). He is known mostly for his series of stories for children "Cautionary Tales", his Catholic faith, which had a strong impact on his works, and his writing collaboration with G. K. Chesterton. Will work on your iPad as well as your iPhone (see instructions below).

Included in this audio library are:

- “Cautionary Tales” (verses written from the perspective of a ridiculously stuffy and pedantic adult lecturing children on the inevitable catastrophes that result from improper behavior, such as "Jim, who ran away from his nurse, and was eaten by a lion", "Matilda, who told lies and was burnt to death", "Henry King, who chewed bits of string and was early cut off in dreadful agonies", and "Rebecca, who slammed doors for fun and perished miserably")
- “Europe and the Faith” (his effort to prove that it was the Catholic Faith that made Europe)
- “The Servile State” (a criticism of capitalism and socialism, and his vision of Distributism)
- “The Path To Rome” (the delightful story of the pilgrimage Belloc made on foot to Rome in order to fulfill a vow he had made to see all Europe which the Christian Faith has saved)
- “The French Revolution” (his determination to provide a clear background of the political theory of the French Revolution, which was a sort of religious creed, supplying the motive force of the entire thing)
- “The Free Press” (discussing what he believed to be the evil of the great modern Capitalist Press, its function to misinform and morally corrupt, and how it puts power into the hands of people who are dishonorable and with questionable character)
- “First and Last”
- “On Nothing and Kindred Subjects”
- “On Something”
- “On Anything”
-“This, That and the Other”
