About the book
Anthony grew up in the loveliest place in the world - his father called it the Eye of the Earth. But to Anthony, the 'eye of the earth' was the old mill-pond near his home - a place of mystery and enchantment.
Anthony's childhood was full of happy moments, and sometimes strange ones, for he had been touched with magic as soon as he was born. When, as a man, he returned to his childhood home, there waiting for him were memories of his childhood - Mother Skip the Witch, the man who could hear the trees grow - and there, too, was the mill-pond in which all the fragments of his life were held as if in a kaleidoscope...
A beautiful and timeless collection of stories - perfect for bedtime reading.
