The fairy Peaseblossom and the goblin Toadstool set off on the oddest mission: to lure a girl and a boy to Faery, to bring before the Queen -- for her subjects in Fairyland are too well-behaved to be amusing. Can they find the right dreamers? Then Peaseblossom encounters Alice, who wishes she could watch a setting sun at all times -- while Toadstool runs into the nearly penniless Richard, who wants a buy a new umbrella for his mother. Perfect!
Yet nothing can go as planned . . . and soon Alice and Richard find themselves alone and lost in a strange woods, with no help but the guidance of the strange creatures they encounter along the way.
George MacDonald, author of "Phantastes, " here presents three tales of magical Faery -- "Cross Purposes," "The Shadows," and "The Flight of the Shadow.""
