teeny tiny writing to match delightfully inscrutable text,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Fairy Tales (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
i read two of these stories as a child and just recently tracked down the author by remembering the Maurice Sendak illustrations. (this isn't an illustrated edition). I've only read the first few of the stories but an essay by the author at the beginning on writing and the additional notes at the end were well worth the 2nd hand price of this book.
You can tell these stories were part of the fabric of Tolkein and CS Lewis' childhood and had a hand in hairy toes on the silver screen!
