This is the extraordinary story of a very nearly ordinary princess named Alicia. Given a magic fish-bone by a good fairy, Alicia can have whatever she wishes-provided she wishes for it at the right time. But it's never clear when the right time is, and sometimes the best magic is no magic at all.... Perfectly matched by Robert Florczak's spectacular illustrations, this funny and unexpectedly touching tale reveals a Victorian world that existed nowhere but in the mind of a child.

About Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812- 1870) was put to work in a factory at age twelve, and children coping with adult responsibilities figure in many of his works. His writing career was launched in 1833, and by the time the bestselling The Pickwick Papers was published in 1837, he was among the leading voices of his time. Robert Florczak's lifelong passion for Dickens's work, as well as for Victorian painting and design, culminates with The Magic Fish-bone's superb evocation of Dickens's time. Mr. Florczak lives in Southern California.
