About this ebook

The Gate of Dreams, illustrated with six colorplates from oil vignettes and lively silhouettes throughout, is reminiscent of classic fairy tale editions. Yet the three stories, which appeal to adults as well as children, are entirely new. The sympathetic characters in "The Woodcarver's Daughter", "Franz the Fool", and "The Girl of the Bells", along with the rural settings of these stories, recall to the reader that sense of delight, recognition, suspense and wonder found in the classic tales of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. Indeed, it was the revered fairy tale scholar Bruno Bettelheim who first suggested the publication of the fairy stories of Lillian Somersaulter Moats.
