When the king's son found gems in his horse's mane, he wondered, and still held his peace. But that night he withdrew early from the feast and hid himself in the shadows of the stable. Presently in came Cordita, her beauty shining through her rags...These magical tales take us through the highlights of the year, through festivals and birthdays.
Isabel Wyatt was born in England in 1901. She spent many years teaching young children and was then, until her retirement in 1965, co-director of studies at Hawkwood College in Gloucestershire. She wrote many books for children, including King Beetle-Tamer and The Book of Fairy Princes. She died in 1992.Review:
'The Seven-Year-Old Wonder Book tells stories about Sylvia and her life and experience through her sixth year of life. Each section tells of Sylvia's day; then she is told a story, by her mum or a friend, that relates to her experiences. Finally, just before going to sleep, Sylvia leaves her Wonder Book on her bedside table and chants a poetry spell asking the rhyme-elves to write a poem for her during the night. Sylvia wakses up the following morning to a new poem and a beautiful drawing and she runs to her mother's bed to read it. The stories relate to festivals throughout the year and, towards the end of the book, we are told about Sylvia's seventh birthday. The sense of wonder in the book is achieved through the way in which Sylvia's life stories intertwine with story-telling and with the rhyme-elves' creation of beautiful pictures and poems. A magical book for six and seven year olds.' -- Juno: A Natural Approach to Family Life, Spring 2006
