Review

“This magical book is a bibliophile’s delight.”
(Choice 2013-10-03)

“A lavishly illustrated book. . . . Larrington and Purkiss make an important claim about the genesis of children’s fantasy literature, which makes their book a useful adjunct to courses in that area.”
(Marvels & Tales 2014-09-30)
