It is evening at the Inn of the Sign of Mother Goose. In a dark, smoky room, the world’s most famous storytellers gather to weave tales of mystery and enchantment. In this collection of 16 haunting fairy tales, Howard Pyle intertwines each story with the next, crafting a unified world filled with princes and demons, genies and sorceresses, and all the characters that pitch in to wage the age-old battle between good and evil. This Looking Glass Library edition includes an introduction by N. D. Wilson and Pyle’s intricate line illustrations from the original 1894 publication.

Review: Twilight Land

User Review  - Trish - Goodreads

I enjoyed ND Wilson's introduction to this book of classic fairy tales. The tales start to sound very similar if you read it straight through like I did! I can recommend it for the Logos Library. Read full review
