Twelve lovely fairy tales of Prince Godfrey, the Knight of the Star of the Nativity who- like our Galahad- had adventures which fulfilled 12 prophecies made when he was born under the Christmas Star. All the trappings of magic, miracles, a flying carpet of birds, werewolves and witches, and the glorious defeat of evil and the triumph of good. The ""illuminations"" by Irena Lorentowicz capture the dream-quality of the stories. Old-world towers, splendid armor, little ladies unbelievably fair, archaic details, caparisoned horses, make the plates exceptionally attractive. For family reading aloud and for 8-11 self readers.
