How refreshing to revel once again in the realm of fantasy, to pay court to misrule and mayhem, and to bow before the splendour of folklore run riot. This is a book for dreamers, for those whose imagination has not been dulled. It is an excellent springboard for the top junior child to use to leap into the labyrinth of legend, of myth. And the illustrations are beguiling, bewitching --- enhancing too. It's worth promoting this book and allowing children to show us what they make of it. Lovely prose and poetry style --- I bet it sounded good on Jackanory.
