Told with an elegiac wisdom, this&delightful tale of magic and otherworldly love&is a timeless work of fantasy imbued with hope and wonder. After multiple printings since 1960, this newest edition will contain the author's recent revisions and will stand as the definitive version of an ageless classic.
