Back cover copy

"Pyle was one of the late nineteenth century writers who helped invent the fairy tale novel." --Jane Yolen Famous and influential as a preeminent illustrator, Howard Pyle was also a gifted writer beloved by millions -- young and old -- for his endearing and enchanting fairy tales. The Wonder Clock is a delightful, magical collection of whimsical stories: twenty-four stories for twenty-four hours. And each a timeless masterpiece. Peopled with jolly kings and queens, lovely princesses and evil witches, sly foxes and mischievous ravens, ogres and giants, dashing princes and nasty dragons, these are old fashioned fairly tales in the best and most beautiful sense that can be enjoyed by readers of any age. This edition also includes Pyle's dazzling illustrations.
