Synopsis: How can anyone describe this book? It isn't a parable, a fairy story or a poem, but rather a mixture of all three. It is beautiful and it is comic. It is philosophical and it is cheery. What we suppose we are trying fumblingly to say is, in a word, that it is Thurber.
There are only a few reasons why everybody has always wanted to read this kind of story, but they are basic:
Everybody has always wanted to love a Princess.
Everybody has always wanted to be a Prince.
Everybody has always wanted the wicked Duke to be punished.
Everybody has always wanted to live happily ever after.
Too little of this kind of thing is going on in the world today. But all of it is going on valorously in The 13 Clocks.

About the Author: James Thurber (1894?1961) was one of the preeminent American humorists and cartoonists of the twentieth century. Most famous for his widely anthologized short story ?The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,? he was a contributor to The New Yorker for more than thirty years and wrote nearly forty books?collections of essays, short stories, fables, and children?s stories, including The Wonderful O and the Caldecott Medal winner Many Moons.

Marc Simont (illustrations; 1915?2013) illustrated nearly a hundred books, among them James Thurber's The Wonderful O and a 1990 edition of Thurber's Many Moons. He worked with such authors as Marjorie Weinman Sharmat (on the Nate the Great series) and Margaret Wise Brown and won both a Caldecott Honor and a Caldecott Medal for his illustrations of children?s books.
 
Neil Gaiman (introduction) is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books for readers of all ages, including American Gods, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, The Graveyard Book, Coraline, and the Sandman series of graphic novels. He is Professor in the Arts at Bard College.
