James Thurber’s classic The 13 Clocks has been re-issued with the original illustrations by Thurber’s friend Marc Simont. Not exactly a fairy tale, not exactly a ghost story, not exactly a novel, it’s a little gem of a tale. An easy read, but filled with wonderful phrases and images telling a mystifying tale. Neil Gaiman introduces the book by saying “I think you could learn everything you need to know about telling stories from this book.” Pick it up to read together with your kids.
