A fantastical collection, available again, of four stories: two stunningly original, and two superb re-creations of favorite tales. "All four stories are linked by a leisurely richness of expression and by their motifs: the temptation of fairy magic versus the joyful acceptance of human mortality and the immutability of love in the face of enchantment."--Horn Book.
