Afterword by Madeline L’Engle
“A much-loved 1920s children’s book about a boy who 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

The Box of Delights

“It does time-travel better than Narnia…The story floats on brilliant, eccentric dialogue and…never loses its snowy-Christmas, Nutcracker enchantment…” —The Independent
