Animal tales are among the most popular of Joan Aiken's short stories and in this stunning collection the ambience of ghostly backgrounds gives an added richness of content to their elusive magic. Two stories in the collection, The Dogs, the Cats and the Mice and The Dancers are published for the first time.
The book also includes a selection of Joan Aiken's poems which have never before been published. Strikingly illustrated in full colour, by prize-winning artist, Amanda Harvey, this beautiful gift book makes an excellent offering for the Christmas and birthday market.
