For them as likes their fairy tales, complete with elves, leprechauns, goblins, dragons (a vegetarian one), enchantment and all the trimmings, here's this season's model. Lucy (a la Alice) follows a little dog down a dark tunnel, is led to an enormous enchanted castle with purple shadows, bona fide princes, hobgoblin door knobs and a handsome youth (but no figure of romance) who tells -- at too great length -- a number of stories about the fairy tale characters who inhabit this realm of mystery. Quite frankly I -- who like fairy tales in the established fashion, and am always hoping for good modern ones -- found this an eccentric blend which didn't meld -- the stories were too elaborate, the-what-happened-to-their-children-if-they-lived-happily-ever-after atmosphere as disillusioning as if we'd followed Cinderella's horses-into-rats home to their holes. Do children want to know? I don't think I did...All in all, an over-elaborated fantasy, rather charmingly dressed out with wood cut type of decorations by Olive Bailey -- and full pages that have a nostalgic swing-back to the past.
