Inhaltsangabe: A collection of nine stories in which characters encounter talking plants, a pine-tree man, a merry-go-round with flying horses, mystical midnight birds, and a cake-eating tree.
From Kirkus Reviews: Nine more stories, written by the versatile New Zealander in the 70's but only now published here; their common theme of being in tune with the natural world makes them especially apposite to the 90's. The ``magic'' isn't always supernatural: since he's lonely, ``The Good Wizard of the Forest'' plants trees and talks to them while they share his meals (he gives them ``plant food cake''); in the end, the grandchildren of those who used to fear him deem him good because he has planted a forest. The title story is about a girl seeking independence from her father, a musical conductor; she thrives in the business of restoring wilted plants by playing the harp to them. Mahy's astringent common sense is in evidence: in ``The Trees,'' all the children but one enjoy seeing a row of dangerously old pines cut down, and even that one child is reconciled by the genuine sympathy of the adults involved and a reprieve for her favorite, the swing tree. Realistic or merrily fantastical, these tales have a special sweetness: a delightful blend of tried-and-true storylines (more than one ends in a happy marriage), language that's witty or lyrical but always fresh, uniquely imaginative settings, and pungently original characters. All this plus vintage b&w drawings by the talented Hughes. A treasure. (Short stories. 8-12) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
