The Kingdom Under The Sea and other stories

£30.00

Product description

Published in 1973 this book is in very good condition.  This is the first time it's been printed in
this form. 

This is a magical collection of stories from the East of
Europe, retold by , herself a wonderfully inventive and romantic
storyteller.

It is a book to be treasured and remembered from childhood
to old age, for these stories are the stuff that dreams are made of, reflecting
our most unfathomable and ineffable longings, and also our most devastating
fears.

Beautiful, haunting stories of princes and
princesses, of Baba Yaga, surely the most frightening witch of all that grisly
ilk.  A magic pear tree, a magic carpet,
a virtuous queen imprisoned in a city wall - these are just a few of the
components so beautifully brought to life by perfect storytelling and the
enchanting illustrations of Jan Pienkowski
