Playalore by Leni Hurley


Playalore by Leni Hurley

Playalore, the play spirit of the dwarfs, makes them laugh and skip, frolic and tease, tumble and bumble. When Mr Miserly uses a magic potion to banish her away, the dwarfs lose their merriment and work hard, harder, hardest, in Mr Miserly's gold mine. This makes Mr Miserly very happy, but the elves and all the other creatures of the forest and fields become sad and lonesome. It takes the special skill of the Elfin Queen Mother, together with the great efforts of Mr Miserly's cat and all the other creatures, to find Playalore again. When they do, she returns to the dwarfs. This breaks the magic spell and the dwarfs regain their merriment. This first title, Playalore, launches The Cat Series, a number of stories written for 6 to 9 year olds.
