A whimsical and satirical fairy tale, it revolves around a princess named Hyacinth who wishes to marry for love rather than political alliances, a king who is obsessed with mechanical birds, and a humble cobbler named Wiggs who becomes an unlikely hero. The novel humorously explores themes of love, marriage, and the contrast between the real and the fantastical.
First published in 1917, this edition is derived from the edition published in 1922 with over 79 black & white illustrations by Charles Robinson. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
