This is a great book by the wonderful T. H. White, although a children's book, it is equally good reading for adults.

Mistress Masham's Repose tells the story of Maria, a ten-year-old orphan girl, growing up in her crumbling ancestral home, under the authority of a cold guardian and a tyrannical governess. But her life changes when she paddles over to a small island in the centre of a lake on the grounds and makes a marvellous discovery – the island is peopled by Lilliputians, straight from Gulliver's Travels. The sea captain who rescued Gulliver so long ago, returned, and trapped a group of the unfortunate Lilliputians for a sideshow act. But, they had escaped, and built themselves a new home on the island called Mistress Masham's Repose. Unfortunately, human nature has changed very little over the last three hundred years, and the Lilliputian's safety exists only in their being unknown to the humans living around them. Can Maria safeguard the little people from her greedy guardian and governess?

T.H. White (who also wrote The Sword in the Stone and The Once and Future King) did an excellent job of building a magical world set into our own, peopled with characters that are fascinating, scary, charming, humorous, and so much more! Great reading, and it has wonderful and lively illustrations by Fritz Eichenberg.

Condition: The book is in very good condition, with the pages being clean, flat and tight with no annotation. The edges of the page block are slightly marked with age. The dust jacket is slightly tatty, as visible in the pictures below, and it has not been price clipped.

The book has around 255 pages, and measures approximately 21cm x 15cm, and weighs around 500g (unpacked)

I accept returns. If you'd like to see further pictures, or any questions, just ask!
