Neil Gaiman said "I read the first paragraph and was hooked. A sixty-three page eighteenth century novel in the grand manner about a waltzing mouse. Of course."
Noel Langley's "studiously and faithfully compiled" history of Desbarollda was originally published in 1947, and now appears as an ebook for the first time.
Edward Ardizzone created the splendid colour illustrations.
