A charming new look for Edward Eager?s classic Tales of Magic series "Full of humor and ingenious fantasy."&nbsp - The Horn Book
The children from&nbsp Knight's Castle &nbsphave longed for a second magic adventure. But you can't find magic just anywhere. It doesn't grow like grass. It requires the right place and the right time-
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Or&nbsp thyme, &nbspas the case may be.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp At Mrs. Whiton's house, magic grows as wild as the banks of thyme in the garden. Growing there is olden time, future time, and common time. Or so says the Natterjack, the toadlike creature who accompanies the children on a series of hilarious, always unpredictable adventures. "Anything can happen," the Natterjack says, "when you have all the time in the world."
Edward Eager (1911-1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasn't until 1951, while he was searching for books to read to his young son, Fritz, that he began writing children's stories. His classic Tales of Magic series started with the best-selling Half Magic, published in 1954.
