This lovely book tells the story of the Child of Hale accompanied by some beautiful illustrations. I love this interpretation as it is most definitely, ‘A Cautionary Tale’ and has a good moral message; as all good fables should. The Childe is whisked away from his home by the king for his queen and lives in splendour, but it is too good to be true and he realises what truly matters to him.
