Available for the first time on this side of the Atlantic, Wallace’s series stars a charming winged rabbit. Everyone teases Pookie about his ‘flimsy, filmy wings’—they don’t even allow him to fly. So he decides to leave home to seek his fortune and travels through a fairy world peopled with kindly elves, intimidating goblins, and helpful frogs. None of them can tell Pookie what his fortune is, though. At last he lands in despair on a snowy doorstep, where the love of a woodcutter’s daughter transforms him. Ages 5-9.About the Author:
Pookie sprang from the imagination of Ivy Wallace while she working on a switchboard during the war. In 1945 she took Pookie's first adventure to Wm Collins and not only was Pookie put into print, but Ivy Wallace and William Collins her publisher were married in 1950.
