About this product
- DescriptionA classic work of rural magic realism from one of Britain's greatest children's velists. Through four interconnected fables of a way of living in rural England that has w disappeared, Alan Garner vividly brings to life a landscape situated on the outskirts of industrial Manchester. Smiths and chandlers, steeplejacks and quarrymen, labourers and artisans all live and work hand in hand with the seasons, the elements, and the land. There is a mutual respect and a kwledge of the magical here that has somehow, somewhere been lost to us. These fables beautifully recapture and restore that lost world in simple, searching prose.
- Author BiographyAlan Garner is one of Britain's greatest living writers for children, the author of such classics as ELIDOR and THE OWL SERVICE. He has done much to explore the disappearing beliefs and traditions of agricultural England. In 1996 he published an acclaimed and unsettling novel for adults, STRANDLOPER (Harvill).
