"Wit, imagination, and a high degree of ingenuity mark this lively tale. Young readers will find it great fun."--Chicago Tribune
"This new Winterfeld is 'The Pied Piper' in reverse. . . . Fascinating."--Publishers Weekly

HENRY WINTERFELD (1901-1990) was born in Germany. He began writing for children in 1933, when he wrote Trouble at Timpetill to entertain his son, who was sick with scarlet fever. He went on to write a number of children's books, which have been published around the world.
