Publisher Comments:

Time and again, the children from Knightand#39;s Castle have longed for another magic adventure. But you canand#39;t find magic just anywhere. It doesnand#39;t just grow like grass. It requires the right place and the right timeandmdash;

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; Or thyme, as the case may be.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; For at Mrs. Whitonand#39;s house, magic grows wild as the fragrant banks of thyme in her garden. Eliza insists that time doesnand#39;t grow, it fliesandmdash;yet growing in the garden is olden time, future time, and common time. Or so says the Natterjack, the odd toadlike creature who presides over the garden and accompanies the kids on a series of perilous, hilarious, always unpredictable adventures. andquot;Anything can happen,andquot; the Natterjack says with a wink, andquot;when you have all the time in the world.andquot;

Synopsis:

Four cousins spending a summer in a house by the sea discover a magic thyme garden from which they embark on a number of adventures in time.

About the Author

Edward Eager (1911andndash;1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasnand#39;t until 1951, while searching for books to read to his young son, Fritz, that he began writing childrenand#39;s stories. His classic Tales of Magic series started with the best-selling Half Magic, published in 1954. In each of his books he carefully acknowledges his indebtedness to E. Nesbit, whom he considered the best childrenand#39;s writer of all timeandmdash;andquot;so that any child who likes my books and doesnand#39;t know hers may be led back to the master of us all.andquot;
