Description
Anna Lavinia's father wanted her to have another point of view, so what did he do? He made a peephole in the garden wall. But he couldn't have known that this new view would lead Anna Lavinia all the way to the upside-down mirror land that lies on the other side of the pond. Here Anna Lavinia meets Toby, who explains that on the other side, instead of gravity, there's something called "the tingle," which feels like "the tickle that comes before a sneeze, or the thrill that comes when the knot in a ribbon just begins to loosen," and allows for floating and spectacular feats of tree-climbing (but mind your furniture doesn't drift away!). Toby introduces Anna Lavinia to a variety of wonders and oddballs, including an uncanny fortune-teller, a turtle with a jungle on its back, and Aunt Cornelia, who's never quite recovered from the disappearance of a certain young man into Anna Lavinia's world a very long time ago. The Silver Nutmeg continues the adventures begun in Beyond the Pawpaw Trees , and features loads of sense, a little nonsense, and more charming verses from Anna Lavinia's favorite book of rhymes. Best of all, fans of Palmer Brown's intricate drawings will find every page a delight for the eyes
