Synopsis: Anna Lavinia’s father wanted her to have another point of view, so what did he do? He made a peephole in the garden wall. But he couldn’t have known that this new view would lead Anna Lavinia all the way to the upside-down mirror land that lies on the other side of the pond. Here Anna Lavinia meets Toby, who explains that on the other side, instead of gravity, there’s something called “the tingle,” which feels like “the tickle that comes before a sneeze, or the thrill that comes when the knot in a ribbon just begins to loosen,” and allows for floating and spectacular feats of tree-climbing (but mind your furniture doesn’t drift away!). Toby introduces Anna Lavinia to a variety of wonders and oddballs, including an uncanny fortune-teller, a turtle with a jungle on its back, and Aunt Cornelia, who’s never quite recovered from the disappearance of a certain young man into Anna Lavinia’s world a very long time ago.

The Silver Nutmeg continues the adventures begun in Beyond the Pawpaw Trees, and features loads of sense, a little nonsense, and more charming verses from Anna Lavinia’s favorite book of rhymes. Best of all, fans of Palmer Brown’s intricate drawings will find every page a delight for the eyes

About the Author: Palmer Brown (1920-2012) was born in Chicago and attended Swarthmore and the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author and illustrator of five books for children, including Beyond the Pawpaw Trees and its sequel, The Silver Nutmeg; Cheerful; and Hickory. About Beyond the Pawpaw Trees, his first published book, Brown said: “If it has any moral at all, it is hoped that it will always be a deep secret between the author and those of his readers who still know that believing is seeing.”

Book Description The New York Review of Books, Inc. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Silver Nutmeg, Palmer Brown, When Anna Lavinia's father put a hole in the garden wall, it was only to give her another point of view. He had no thought that the point of view would stretch all the way to an entirely new land on the other side of Dew Pond. But that's exactly what Anna Lavinia discovers one very dull, very dry day, after tossing acorns into the pond and finding them tossed right back up to her. They are being thrown by a boy named Toby, who invites Anna to join him in his looking-glass world. Here there is no such thing as gravity, only a much weaker force that feels like "the tickle that comes before a sneeze, or the thrill that comes when the knot in a ribbon just begins to loosen," and allows for floating and spectacular feats of tree-climbing (but mind your household goods don't drift away!). Toby introduces Anna Lavinia to an uncanny fortuneteller and to his aunt Cornelia, who has never gotten over the disappearance of her beloved into Anna Lavinia's own world. The Silver Nutmeg continues the adventures begun in Beyond the Pawpaw Trees, and features loads of sense, a little nonsense, and more delightful verses from Anna Lavinia's beloved Songs from Nowhere. Best of all, fans of Palmer Brown's intricate drawings will find every page a delight for the eyes. Bookseller Inventory # B9781590175002
