Μαλακό εξώφυλλο

When Anna Lavinia’s father put a hole in the garden wall, it
was only to give her another point of view. He had no thought
that the point of view would stretch all the way to an entirely
new land on the other side of Dew Pond. But that’s exactly
what Anna Lavinia discovers one very dull, very dry day, after
tossing acorns into the pond and finding them tossed right
back up to her. They are being thrown by a boy named Toby,
who invites Anna to join him in his looking-glass world. Here
there is no such thing as gravity, only a much weaker force that
feels like “the tickle that comes before a sneeze, or the thrill
that comes when the knot in a ribbon just begins to loosen,”
and allows for floating and spectacular feats of tree-climbing
(but mind your household goods don’t drift away!). Toby introduces
Anna Lavinia to an uncanny fortuneteller and to his aunt
Cornelia, who has never gotten over the disappearance of her
beloved into Anna Lavinia’s own world.

The Silver Nutmeg continues the adventures begun in Beyond
the Pawpaw Trees, and features loads of sense, a little nonsense,
and more delightful verses from Anna Lavinia’s beloved Songs
from Nowhere. Best of all, fans of Palmer Brown’s intricate
drawings will find every page a delight for the eyes.
