The book itself is wonderful, and was one of my favourite as a child.
Joan Aiken's stories are perfect bedtime reading - both adult and child. They're exhilirating tales of good and evil, but tinged with an other worldliness that makes it impossible to be anything other than completely captivated. Needless to say, this is a damn fine book and you'd be an idiot not to get hold of a copy. Just try and get the Pienkowski illustrated version: they really play up to the text and make reading these lovely stories even more of a pleasure.
