From the author of the Bill Bergson stories (see Bill Bergson, Master Detective, etc.) comes this completely different and quite charming fairy story that should complement young feelings of longing and love and adventure.
It is Anders, once a mistreated orphan in Stockholm, who tells the remarkable tale of how he came to Faraway Land and what happened to him there. With help from Mrs. Lundy and the magic apple, he finds himself in the castle of the good King, his real father, and there experiences all the companionship and excitement he missed with mean Aunt Hulda and Uncle Olaf.
Through the adventures that follow- their sortie against the wicked Sir Kato- Anders' (who is now Mio) memories of his former life run in juxtaposition to the fantasy, making it the more real. (Fiction. 7-10)
