The best children's fantasy I have read
on 25 May 1999
The once Poet Laureate John Masefield wrote two wonderful children's books - The Box of Delights and this one, The Midnight Folk. It's the story of the English countryside in summer that abounds with an anarchic mix of talking cats, seven league boots, pirates, evil Americans. What more could you want? It casts a spell even after all these years.
