Aug 08, 2010 Ed rated it 3 of 5 stars Recommends it for: parents to read to their children
Recommended to Ed by: Gene Wolfe
Shelves: sf-fantasy, urthlings
It was hard for me to rate this little-known work of 19th-century children's literature. Gene Wolfe called it an underappreciated gem, and I can see that it was an obvious influence on some of his later fantasy novels. I found it charming and a joy to read, but, ultimately, it was little more than a quick palate cleanser between more ambitious novels for me. Still, it had surprising amount of emotional depth and allegory, and I enjoyed the Tolkien-like songs.

Here is another book illustrated by Dugald Stewart Walker but as far as I can see all on line versions do not have his fab illustrations
Enjoyable, lovely and certainly worth reading, but not the deepest nor the most wonderfully composed fantasy.

I'd like to read this because I think my great-grandma was named after this author.
Terrible, no sense and no point, no fun.
