First printing of this wonderful Newbery Honor book. Pope wrote only two books, both of them wonderful. She was too busy teaching Shakespeare and Milton to write any more. Alas for those of us who love her books! This copy is clean, tight, bright, lovely; no previous owner name or marks, just the inscription from Pope on the free front endpaper. Inscribed, "with gratitude and affection," and signed "Libby," dated April 1974. Terrific copy. Bookseller Inventory # 95102101
Synopsis: In 1558, while exiled by Queen Mary Tudor to a remote castle known as Perilous Gard, young Kate Sutton becomes involved in a series of mysterious events that lead her to an underground world peopled by Fairy Folk—whose customs are even older than the Druids? and include human sacrifice.
