For ages 7–14, Masefield’s holiday delights are lasting contributions to children’s fantasy literature.
The hero of The Box of Delights “must fight dark magic to uncover his family’s treasure. It won’t be easy, but luckily he has an owl, a fox, a cat and a box of toys to help him on his way.”—The Guardian (London)
A perfect Christmas treat, “The Box of Delights is…crammed full of fantasy and adventures, almost as if every known children’s story had been combined in one. There’s space travel and time travel and evil villains and holiday sentiments and adventures, adventures, adventures.” —The Seattle Times
