Au­thor: Noel Lan­g­ley Pub­lisher: Faber & Faber This charm­ing, dryly hu­mor­ous chil­dren’s clas­sic was first pub­lished in 1937. It fol­lows Aladdin’s son as he strives to find the tit­u­lar en­chanted land ( a float­ing gar­den, not the street of that name in Hull), and aid a wiz­ard who accidentally turned him­self into a tor­toise. The nar­ra­tive voice is ap­peal­ingly quirky; so are the sup­port­ing char­ac­ters, which in­clude a djinn and a talk­ing mouse. This reis­sue fea­tures the ex­panded text from 1966, with il­lus­tra­tions by Ed­ward Ardiz­zone.
