Product Description:

A reprint of this classic fantasy story, first published in 1965, illustrated with black and white line drawings by Charles Keeping. Four children in Manchester chance on a ruined church where the fabric of time and place is weak enough to allow them entry into the strange world of Elidor which is threatened by the powers of evil.

Review:

“A spellbinder. The secret of Garner’s magic is that it is stripped of whimsy... A beautiful work of poetic imagination, it deserves to become a classic of fantasy.”
The Listener

“Each detail, ordinary or sinister, establishes atmosphere, background or character exactly. Elidor is a remarkable book: intelligent, rich and terrifying.”
TLS

“An outstanding book.”
The Teacher

“Adventure of a staggering grandeur... beautiful, profound, disturbing. His myths and terrors seem to me immortal.”
The New Christian

“Ambitiously imagined and worked out with a hard economical tension. The climax, a peak after chapters of mounting terror, is brilliant.”
The New Statesman
