The Gammage Cup: A Novel of the Minnipins BSY586

US$12.95

Carol Kendall's witty, epic tales about the race of people called the Minnipins. Now a new generation of readers can thrill to the adventures of the tiny folk who become mighty heroes. The original interior illustrations by Erik Blegvad and Imero Gobbato have been retained, but vibrant new cover art by beloved illustrators Tim and Greg Hildebrandt gives the books a new look for a new audience. This highly creative fantasy [has] an almost inexhaustible variety of reading pleasures: plot surprises, humor, fascinating characters, richness of ideas, and delight in words.

  因惧怕权威,小人族米尼平人变得越来越古板,日复一日地过着整齐划一的机械生活,渐渐失去了真实的自己。有一天,不远处的日落山上出现了奇怪的火光,但因人们害怕打破安静的生活,竟避而不谈……而在他们之中,有五个与众不同的米尼平人,仍然保持着自我的尊严,敢于打破常规,却因此被逐出村庄。但他们并未因此绝望,反倒像获得解放一般,在日落山附近定居下来。而就在此时,他们终于发现了日落山的火光到底意味着什么,里面的老矿洞究竟通向哪里,古老地洞里埋藏的宝剑具有什么力量……而这些决定着米尼平人的命运,他们该何去何从……
