Description
Nine tales of younger sons and distant kingdoms, magic and enchantment and of what it is in men that is stronger than enchantment, written for children of about seven and upwards. What distinguishes Bretherton’s writing is a purity and seriousness that appeals to the adult -- the adult in the child (and to the adult reader): a quality of patience and adaptation to circumstance. Though set in the world of faerie, none of the exciting stories relies on magic for its denouement. With superb illustrations by a celebrated engraver.
