Description

In these "four-and-twenty tales, one for each hour of the day" Howard Pyle surpasses even himself in stories of humor and delight that satisfy the sense of wonder that is part of the heritage of children everywhere.

Here are the brave knights and kings, enchanted animals, adventurous princes and lovely princesses of old, inhabiting a wondrous, magic land. In it, there are deeds to be accomplished, prophecies to to be fulfilled, and wishes to be carried out, all told with the humor and vivacity and vigor of an accomplished tale spinner.

The imaginative pictures by the author and the introductory verses by Katherine Pyle make this a book for children to treasure.
