Extremely funny fairy tale

by Corgi on Mar 13, 2009

It doesn't get any better than this. Fun and funny, magical and musical, this witty fairy tale is enjoyable for children and even more so for adults. In the style of two other Thurber masterpieces, The Thirteen Clocks and The Wonderful O, he casts a shimmering spell of poetry and comedy and adventure. Even in the fairy tale setting, his humor has that timeless Mark Twain-ish, so-direct-as-to-be-forever-colloquial stamp. Anyone with a taste for such (I know there must be grim types who wouldn't delight in witty whimsy, though it's hard to imagine) will love The White Deer.
