The Cruise of the Little Dipper and Other Fairy Tales contains four exquisitely crafted and illustrated fairy tales. They Are:
The Cruise of the Little Dipper - in which a boy is magically shrunk and sails in the toy boat he built to find his missing sailor father.
The Wonderful Tale of Nikko - in which a girl with the help of a spider and a snail temporarily becomes Empress-Consort of China.
Peter Dwarf - about a boy raised by dwarves and his magically transformed cat. But what was the cat before it was transformed?
The Crystal Bowl, in which a prince rescues his love from a magician
The Merciless Tsar - in which a haughty king learns to mend his ways and regain his kingdom.
This is really one of the most magical and spellbinding of children's books! The stories are beautifully written (readers may particularly enjoy the gentle humour of The Wonderful Tale of Niku.) It takes you on a journey of magic, enchantment and mystery.
It is a wonder that this book disappeared from the shelves of libraries eliminating hours of enjoyment for our children. It is our belief that this one deserves a permanent place with the classics.
10% of the profit from the sale of this book is donated to charities.
