Synopsis: Stories relate how courageous children rescue a lonely little girl from an enchanted island, make a dazzling discovery in a snowstorm, and witness the king's wedding

From School Library Journal: Grade 5 Up This collection is a real puz zler. It consists of three stories, differ ent in tone and style, and seemingly written for different age groups. The ti tle story is adult in tone, and most of the characters are adults. The narrator is a dwarf in the retinue of a Spanish king who describes events leading up to two marriages, those of the king and his queen, and of two dwarfs. The story has a stark power and pathos which should appeal to young adults. It is not a children's story. ``Boy to Island'' is more for middle grade readers. A boy visits a remote island to tend sheep, and unwittingly eating fairy food, must re main there for seven years. The protag onist of ``Stony Ray'' is a little girl who, becoming lost in a snowstorm, meets a woman whom she thinks is a witch. This story seems more suited for youn ger readers, although the sequence in the snow is complex and confusing. Mayne is a rewarding writer for those who can master his oblique style and frequent use of obscure speech pat terns. A story collection could serve as a good introduction to his work, but this particular one is not suitable be cause the stories are so different in tone and intended audience. Ruth S. Vose, San Francisco Public Library
