Blurb – Lower Cover
This collection includes two of Tolkien’s best fairy stories. The world of Faery is the setting for Smith of Wootton Major. The preparation of a Great Cake to mark the Feast of Good Children was a human, cheerful occasion, but other less material powers were at work and the world of man and of Faery met and blended in a strange, haunting union.

‘Haunting quality characteristic of the best of the “deeper” folk tales. It is a delightful, memorable story.’ – Times Educational Supplement

‘Whoever reads it at eight will no doubt still be going back to it at eighty’ – New Statesman
