book image The Little Bookroom: Eleanor Farjeon's Short Stories for Children Chosen by Herself
Eleanor Farjeon
+ Description

"Eleanor Farjeon is a master at presenting the world as romance. Yet there is bite in it. Her worlds of imagination are no simpering constructions, all syrup and sugar, with fairies uprooted from their antique and awesome lineage. They are shadowed with weeping now and then, but the strongest note is affirmation, an exuberance of joy." —The Horn Book
