About the Author:


Kevin Crossley-Holland is a poet, historical novelist for children, and authority on traditional tale who has presented many BBC radio programs and is a frequent speaker at schools and libraries. He is the President of the School Library Association, an Honorary Fellow of St Edmund Hall, Oxford, a patron of the Society of Storytelling, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. His Arthur trilogy was translated into 25 languages, and has sold well over one million copies worldwide.

Review:

`One of these stories is as short as a fleeting thought, another seeks to explain God's gift to man of four score years and ten...In stories as short as these, the love between parent and child, siblings, friends and within communities is a melody, and the point at which the reader shares this
intimacy is the unique note. A book to think about for the 9-plus reader.'
The School Librarian
