Nothing in the enchanted forest annoyed that mighty monarch King Clode more than the number of deer which, when he went out hunting, proved to be lovely princesses under a spell. King Clode thought wizards and sorcerers a nuisance and never more than when his hunts ended in vanished venison. Here is James Thurber's new world, revealed in a story which, copiously annotated with Thurber drawings, is a fairy-tale for the young in heart of all ages.
