Margaret Mahy's many books - picture books, short stories, and fiction for teenagers as well as younger children - have been hugely successful all round the world and she is indisputably one of the most popular and successful twentieth-century children's authors. She has won the Carnegie Medal and many other awards, and has been nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. She lives in New Zealand.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-- These nine short stories include tales of magic, the supernatural, witchcraft, mystery, fairy tales, and fantasy. Mahy's language is full of imagery and has the ring of traditional folklore. Each short, deceptively simple entry includes allegorical and/or metaphysical elements to contemplate and explore. The selections are varied and always surprising, requiring readers who are open to often startlingly fantastic situations. Catchpole's drawings enhance the stories and add to the collection's overall enchantment. An unusual collection for classroom reading and discussion as well as for reading aloud. --Yvonne Frey, Peoria Public Schools, IL
