Speaking of Dianna Wynne Jones, I've been looking for her "Tale of Time
City" but the only ones I can find online are first edition hardbacks- out
of my price range. It was a favorite of mine as a kid. Fortunately, I see on that it is being reprinted, hopefully that means it will come out
in the US again soon too.
Just got the "Orange Fairy Book" compiled by Andrew Lang, I recommend all of
the colors books he did for fairy tales from around the world.
