We will follow the trail of ornate letters of a bygone era pressed into the paper, and the words will be our guide through Fairyland where we will meet Tangle and Mossy and accompany them on their quest to find the lock that fits...
"This story is filled with a lambent, glowing air of its own. It is dreamy and mystical, with a vague, dim, wondering beauty, and perhaps for these reasons it reminds me more of MacDonald's two great haunting dream romances, Lilith and Phantastes." ---Lin Carter's introduction for Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series; B & W and Color Illustrations.
