New; Large Softcover Book of 162 pages. Wonderfully Illustrated!!!! Edmund Spenser first published The Faerie Queene in 1590. The poem tells of the dventures of the Redcross Knight and the Lady Una. The Kingdom of Una's royal parents is menaced by a Dragon and the queen of Fairyland, Gloriana, commissions Redcross to accompany Una to her parents' far-away kingdom to slay the Dragon. This prose retelling of the poem, for children, attempts to retain some sense of the original Elizabethan poetic language. Sin is ugly and wicked and is so portrayed in this story; holiness is good and beautiful and is so portrayed in this story. The imagery, action and recurring themes of this tale will delight, caution and inspire young hearts. Older hearts might be enchanted too! Retold by our friends, Ben Shealy and beautifully illustrated by his better-half, Anne Shealy.
