MInor shelfwear on top and bottom of spine. Slight scratches on the edges of the spine. ; Gilt lettering on front and spine of book with a design on front as well. Farnol slips from blank to verse and into prose at his convenience. He interjects himself and his daughter, arguing about the course of the story, and usually puts their discussions into the same rhymes the medieval characters use, even as he's aggrieved by his daughter's tasteless use of slang ('ripping', 'corking'). But his pace is brisk and even, so—taking this as the light amusement it claims to be—it work, The secondary characters are charming; Rob o' the Greenwood, who Farnol does the respect of not explaining; the frightening but benevolent witch and her frightening but benevolent dwarf son; and the grouchy sidekick Sir Pertinax, who gets several star turns of his own. The lovely maidens are valiant, and the hero gets himself into trouble. ; Drawings in Color; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 252 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 10438
