Jacket blurb: "Eight spellbindingly clever, funny and haunting new stories from the ever masterly storyteller, Joan Aiken."

Journal Entry 2 by tangledthreads from Derby, Derbyshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, February 11, 2004
I enjoyed these little stories, which are engaging and humorous and magical. I didn't love them, though, as I did Joan Aiken's other collections of stories, 'The Kingdom By the Sea' and 'A Necklace of Raindrops'. I also missed Jan Pienkowski's stunning illustrations (this one is illustrated by Quentin Blake).

Ready for release - please PM me if you are interested in a trade.

This has been read and enjoyed by children in my son's class at school. Bringing to the un-convention to pass on to someone else to enjoy.

Found at the Unconvention. I'm looking forward to reading this.

Journal Entry 7 by PDB11 from Oakhill, Somerset United Kingdom on Tuesday, July 20, 2004
When Joan Aiken's name is coupled with that of Quentin Blake as illustrator, I expect the sort of comedy for young children that she used to write for the BBC's Jackanory programmes.

Instead we get a book of quite creepy short stories. Endings happy, endings sad, endings weird, endings open. But every one is charming, and should make young readers think about the world.

I think I'll hang onto this, for now.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

RELEASE NOTES:

Tucked into the leaflet rack by the honesty box at the entrance to the circles.

These circles are not easy to find, but its worth it! They're in a farm field which is approached by a track off a road that is so minor that it's not even on the Google map used for crossing zones (and so narrow that we saw a removal van failing to get down it as we came away)

Journal Entry 9 by northernflicker from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Sunday, April 6, 2008
Book found at The Stone Circles at Stanton Drew in Somerset on a bitterly cold day in March (strong north wind). It had been left in the leaflet rack. My children loved "The Wolves of Willoughby Chase" and "Black Hearts in Battersea", etc. by Joan Aiken when they were young. Now it's the turn of the grandchild!
The Stone Circles are well worth a visit and you can get up close.
