MPL Book Trailer #78: The 13 Clocks, by James Thurber

Mooresville Public Library (Mooresville, Indiana) presents a book trailer featuring "The 13 Clocks," by James Thurber. According to Time magazine, this children's classic (ages 9-12) "is one of the cleverest [fairy tales] that any modern writer has been able to tell. . . . There is no living author who moves about in fairyland with such wit and easy familiarity." Although Thurber passed in 1961, and Time's review was probably written when the book was first published (1950), the book has been continuously in print. Check your local library or online bookseller.
