Tale of a One-Way Street

(1978)
And Other Stories
A collection of stories by

 
 
What very strange creatures you are apt to meet if you dare to go the wrong way up a one-way street. What splendid things you can remember, even if they didn't happen (like the zebra you got for your birthday or all the doughnuts in the world which you ate without being sick), if you hold the leaf of a memory tree in the palm of your hand. What a peculiar muddle your presents can get into when your birthday cake is baked with a wishing spoon, and what magical rewrds come your way if you save the king of grasshoppers from drowning in your porridge. In these original stories of imagination, charmingly enhanced by the adventurous illustrations of Jan Pienkowski, Joan Aiken takes us to peculiar lands where all the magical things that only seem to happen in dreams really happen.
