Apr 25, 2010

really liked it
bookshelves: dragons, fantasy, short-stories-novellas, children-s-and-ya
Read in April, 2010

Nesbit's tone is often preachy, and the narrative voice is a little patronising and didactic, but if you can ignore that, I think these stories are delightful. I liked Prince Tiresome's pack of hippos, and also, perhaps especially, all the reversals in the land of Rotundia: the buns growing on trees, the tiny elephants... Fido the tiny elephant is completely adorable.

Lovely, and bitesize.
