Calyx of Teversall has the spirit of a classical fairy tale. It is so refreshing to read something that is written for an intelligent young audience, and doesn't try to "dumb down" the dialogue! This book will be enjoyed by everyone who reads it. It has a delightful pace, great flow, I just love it.
