Carol Kendall's witty, epic tales about the race of people called the Minnipins are now available as Odyssey/Harcourt Young Classics. Now a new generation of readers can thrill to the adventures of the tiny folk who become mighty heroes. The original interior illustrations by Erik Blegvad and Imero Gobbato have been retained, but vibrant new cover art by beloved illustrators Tim and Greg Hildebrandt gives the books a new look for a new audience.

Undersize heroes with outsize derringdo, the tiny Minnipins star in Carol Kendall's The Gammage Cup (1959), with the original pen-and-inks by Erik Blegvad, and its sequel, The Whisper of Glocken (1965), with the original b&w interior art by Imero Gobbato; both appear now with new cover art by Tim and Greg Hildebrandt. Harry Potter watchers take note: this fantasy includes a character named Muggles.Review:
