A delightful tapestry of a magical, lost-world society comes together in this poetic and humorous story for children. The amazing tales behind the squares of this wonderful and time-worn quilt are unraveled: a red velvet patch recalls an exquisite dress ball and a magical midnight feast with a highwayman, while a square of green brocade carries memories of Captain Tramlemousse, a pirate. Children will immerse themselves in the beautiful language and fantastical characters of this beautifully written book.
