The illustration on our cover is taken from Stories for Children by Oscar Wilde, illustrated by P J Lynch, 0 7500 0302 2, £10.00 (see Fairy Tale Favourites). The book is published by Simon & Schuster and we're grateful to them for help in using this illustration.
The sensitive reader will find many depths to fathom in this thoughtfully-written short novel. The discovery of a dead hare, which Harry and Sarah carry to school, triggers off two stories that jigsaw in a most satisfying and unusual way. It would serialize well for a class to listen to and should provoke discussion a-plenty about man's custodianship of the earth and its creatures.
