Flemming Flinders, a dapper greengrocer more often engrossed in a book than attuned to his turnips, dreams of adventure, fame, and fortune. When the wide-eyed Mr. Flinders finally sets out with high hopes, he finds himself living one of his fairy tales. But everyone he encounters-the wart-nosed Drukamella, the beautiful young Ingaborg, and the talking crow with his nemesis, Signor Monteverdi-is surely not.In Cobweb Castle, author Jan Wahl and illustrator Edward Gorey whisk readers along to watch Flemming bumble through the brambles of reality, illustrating the extent our imaginations can take us. Last printed in 1968, this is one of the enigmatic artist's original works in color. Wahl's prose keeps readers privy as the adventure becomes more frenetic, but the fantasy ends nearly as it started with a swift bonk on the head. Fleming returns to his shop, dreaming.
