A gorgeous reissue of this classic tale, originally published in 1945 and lavishly illustrated with paintings by Phyllis Bray, member of the London Group.
Titania, the Fairy Queen, and Oberon, King of the Fairies, fall into a quarrel about who should have charge of a little changeling boy. Oberon and his servant, Puck, cast a spell which causes Titania to fall magically in love with Nick Bottom, a weaver who has been given the head of a donkey. Oberon sees the error of his ways and seeks a way to reverse the spell and restore harmony. An ideal first introduction to Shakespeare's work for children.
