An anthologhy of 30 stories and poems for children. The collection has been distilled from more than 600 submissions received from all across Canada: the Yukon, British Columbia, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritimes. All the pieces are new; almost all are appearing in print for the first time. There is a good deal of fantasy but also haiku, lyric poetry, animal stories, nonsense verse, and realistic fiction. The collection is magical in many senses of the word. In the stories will be found a talking cabage, an animated stuffed goose, a passionate Russian doll, and a flying bed.

The book is lavishly illustrated throughout by children's illustrators using the techniques of scraperboard, charcoal, pen and ink, pencil, wash, and silhouette. It opens up into a world of enchantment and adventure for children of all ages.
