From the Publisher:

Beneath a floorboard in the old farmhouse into which his family has just moved, eight-year-old Max Morley discovers twelve time-worn wooden soldiers. Under his careful watch, the "Twelves" come to life, each possessing a name and a distinct personality. As Max soon learns, they share a history filled with incident and adventure -- all an imaginative legacy of the famous Brontės (Branwell, Charlotte, Emily, Anne), who were the soldiers' original owners. In its mix of invention, excitement, character, and literary history, "The Return of the Twelves" occupies a rare place in children's literature. Its gripping narrative and engaging figures make it perfect for young readers of ten and up.

Review:

"The most remarkable group of characters to be presented to children in a long time." -- New York Herald Tribune Book Week
