Time and again, the children from Knight's Castle have longed for another magic adventure. But you can't find magic just anywhere. It doesn't grow like grass. It requires the right place and the right time . . . Or thyme, as the case may be. At Mrs. Whiton's house, magic grows as wild as the banks of thyme in the garden. Growing there is olden time, future time, and common time. Or so says the Natterjack, the toadlike creature who accompanies the children on a series of hilarious, always unpredictable adventures. "Anything can happen," the Natterjack says, "when you have all the time in the world."
Edward Eager (1911-1964) worked primarily as a playwright and lyricist. It wasn't until 1951, while searching for books to read to his young son, Fritz, that he began writing children'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 children's writer of all time-"so that any child who likes my books and doesn't know hers may be led back to the master of us all."
