A Collins Modern Classic.
'Half an hour's rain for your carrots, Mr McCrae, Tuesday morning? Fine rain, or medium fine? And do you want any wind with it?'
Imagine ordering a sunny day from the local weather witch, asking an apple tree to answer the telephone and making a beautiful garden out of old cereal boxes. What would you do if you inherited a real hair loom, or found three ugly old ladies and a dragon on your doorstep, and would you need a bicycle if you had a unicorn to ride?
Anything is magically possible in these twelve short stories by gifted storyteller, Joan Aiken.
