I bought this ages ago as I was intrigued by the puzzle it was supposed to have contained. However, an internet search seems to suggest it was never solved :( But the story is reasonably sweet - a retelling of the myths surrounding Merlin and Nimue. The illustrations are lovely and it is well worth reading just to look at them.
