This is the last post on children's fantasy and I'll be covering here some old classics.
Firstly John Masefield's Midnight Folk. John Masefield was Poet Laureate from 1930 to his death in 1967.
Two odd children's books - The Hunting of Wilberforce Pike by Molly Lefebure about a cat thief who snatches cats off the streets to be made into fur coats and draws upon himself the ire of the Power Station gang - a mysterious cat underworld who seek revenge. Bottersnikes & Gumbles by S A Wakefield is an Australian children's book with a great cover.
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster is quite famous and needs no introduction. A very unusual fantasy indeed. The illustrations in this Armada Lion edition are by Jules Feiffer.
The Adventures of Uncle Lubin was written and illustrated by W Heath Robinson. I need say no more.
Coming next - Science Fiction!
