This is an old book, so I was surprised at the great condition it was in. It looked like it had come directly from the bookstore. There were no tears, stains, or writing on the dust jacket or pages. Aside from the author's website, these books are hard to find, so I was happy to find it at such a good price. I read these when I was a child and have wanted to read them again for a long time now. Grace Chetwin is a great author with a great style and a vivid imagination.
This book is excellent. Has a little Tolkien and lloyd alexander twist. About a boy who has to give his rune back to his mother and must solve a riddle. It has songs and in the back you can play them on the guitar
