[From jacket flap] Legends from fairyland, written by Harriet Parr under he nom de plume Holme Lee, was first published in 1907. The story follows Prince Glee and Princess Trill on their journey throughout wonderland where, in the great tradition of fairy tales, we are introduced to the ephemeral characters that so delighted and frightened us as children. From the creeping plant with many tendrils, which envelopes poor Ide and wicked Aunt Spite, to the everlasting friendship of Mannekin Hope and the wise counsel of Tuflongbo, the journey inspires a child's imagination in a world of unsympathetic adults. That childhood vision described by Elfie Freemantle in her introduction, "so much more farseeing than our grown up one", is enhanced by the superb illustrations of Reginald and Horace Knowles. As it should be, the good Prince and Princess triumph over the wicked and live happily ever after. It is the moral aspect of the legends, this truth which transcends cynical adulthood, that the author believed would touch that special place in our hearts. As Elfie Freemantle says "There is a grown up fairyland too, you know, if only you can keep to the path that leads there". There is a secret place in all our hearts where Fairyland still has a home. Those childhood memories of elfin courts and gossamer wings, fantasy forests, magic giants and dewdrop palaces are captured in this beautifully illustrated book.
