Sisters Sarah and Becca find Adam, a young child, one day in midsummer. They love him dearly, but he says he is a fairy child and that they cannot keep him longer than A year and a Day.
William Mayne's classic, magical tale, is reproduced in this stunning little book with illustrations that capture each moment of the story. A quality read that children of all ages will love, but would make an ideal gift for young readers who enjoy either reading alone or reading aloud. (Age 7 and over). --Susan Harrison
