Eleanor Farjeon mischievously tilts our workaday world to reveal its wonders and follies. Her selection of her favourite stories describes powerful - and sometimes exceedingly silly - monarchs and commoners who are every bit their match; musicians and dancers who live for art rather than earthly reward; and a goldfish who wishes to "marry the Moon, surpass the Sun, and possess the World." Other stories are The King and the Corn, the Girl who Kissed the Peach Tree, the Barrel Organ, the Little Dressmaker, the Little Lady's Roses, the Lovebirds, the Glass Peacock, Old Surly and the Boy, and the Connemara Donkey among the 27 stories. For ages 9-12 years and a gem for reading aloud. Line art illus. by the wonderful artist Edward Ardizzone, Afterword by Rumer Godden. Remainder mark. Paperback, 328Pp. A rare import.
