Review
'Follows in a tradition that goes back as far as The Arabian Nights, where a series of tales is told to stave off an unpleasant happening.' -- The Irish Times The Irish Times 'It is a celebration of the Irish art of storytelling.' -- Belfast Telegraph Belfast Telegraph The Belfast Telegraph 'As with all Trevor's books, the attention to detail is painstaking and the word painting is as vivid as though he's dipped his brush in the rainbow.' -- Sunday Press 'It is ... A celebration of the imagination, its power to triumph over grief, transform the world, bring witches to life and sunflowers to bloom in the snow. Trevor has done it all by taking the simplest, and oldest, of devices and manipulating it beautifully.' -- Evening Press 'enchanting and delightful' -- The School Librarian The School Librarian Product Description
A beautiful new edition of William Trevor's only book for children. Where would you find talking snails, fighting queens, Welsh witches and winter sunflowers? In stories, of course, and that's why Juliet loves them. On a holiday in France, Juliet hears lots of stories - from her grandmother and from the toymaker who sells wind-up animals on the quayside. Juliet wants to be a storyteller too, and when she embarks on a mission to rescue the little trout in the restaurant fish tank, she begins an adventure which turns into her very own story."
