Cooper, Susan - Silver on the tree - ( Item 111960 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2011. First Thus. Fine Hardback. Sealed. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Illustrated by Laura Carlin. Quarter-bound in buckram with Modigliani paper sides. Frontispiece and 7 colour illustrations. 264 pages approx. Book size: 9" x 6". Silver on the Tree ties up all the threads of the previous stories in a triumphant finale. Stirring fantasy is mingled with realistic portrayals of family ties and friendships formed under pressure, like the bond between Will and Bran, and Bran's own discoveries about his parents. In her preface, Susan Cooper describes the relation between the novels in the series: 'I've always thought of these five as the movements of a symphony. Each has its own sound, mood or tempo, but they belong together; they are parts of a whole, written, as it were, in the same key.' The sequence is notable for being honoured twice by the Newbery awards - America's most prestigious prize for children's literature.
