Illustrated by Steve McCabe
Mossy and Tangle journey through a fantasy world to the Valley of Shadows in search of a key to a rainbow.
The Joseph Norman edition of The Golden Key also includes the stories, Cross Purposes and The Shadows.
All three stories feature illustrations by Steve McCabe, a visual artist, poet and the creator of a children’s activity feature syndicated by the Toronto Star. Of all the illustrators who have paid homage to these stories, McCabe’s drawings come the closest to matching MacDonald’s own fantastic imagination.
Mentor to Lewis Carroll and generations of children’s writers, George MacDonald remains one of the world’s most read writers of classic fairy tales.
