If you know Walter De La Mare's work, you probably know him as an important literary novelist and poet in the early twentieth century. But he also tried his hand at children's fiction, and "The Three Mulla-mulgars" is pretty special. It's the sort of book you want to take home and read to your kids yourself. But it's De La Mare.

Farewell, your faithful company! Farewell, the heart that loved unbidden -- Nod's dark-eyed, beauteous Water-midden!"
