'Throughout there is the sense of the unadorned, unrationalized essence of folk tradition - This book entertains and startles afresh on each reading.' - Michael Cayley, PN Review ' - an absolute delight. The tales fly along relentlessly to their enigmatic endings, mixing up the ridiculous, the miraculous and the commonplace, putting to shame the puerile moralizing of many modern children's books. The irrational is sitting in the trees waiting to leap upon you - ' - George Szirtes, Quarto
